    It's an action adventure film about an earthquake and it stars Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Therefore, I think it's safe to say that no one would go and see it looking for in-depth characterisation, meaningful plot subtleties and answers to life's deeper questions!

    I watched it on a flight to the USA and I quite enjoyed it in a "leave your brain in neutral, sit back and enjoy" kind of way.

    The only disaster movie I've seen that had some intelligence about it, was 'Deep Impact' and even that had some fanciful stuff in it. Good film though.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!
