San Andreas Movie Review

San Andreas (A)

Length:- 1 hr. 54 min.

"San Andreas" is a disaster movie starting Dwayne Johnson. This movie mostly works on the lower level of disaster and it doesn't explore it's full potential.It could have been much better in every-way.I remember the movie "2012" it had massive disaster events while this one just looks like smaller version of that movie.It's similar to "2012" in many ways like we have a scientist who is predicting the future but at a very small scale. Also, We have this disaster happen at just west coast rather than a national or global level like "2012".Many times the scenes looks less realistic while the action is very little enjoyable. Most of this film focuses on a family rescue and survival.

Ray Gaines (Dwaynes Johnson) is a rescue helicopter pilot who is getting divorce from Emma (Carla Gugino) shortly before this disaster is about to happen.The whole story revolves around how he rescues his wife and daughter? The movie gets pretty boring within few minutes because it doesn't work at a bigger level of how things are happening here? I must say the direction of Brad Peyton’s is really weak.Some action scenes are good and some are not. So, You get kind of a mixed feeling about it.

In my opinion this movie is a generic execution of the common events for the niche situation which gives you a not so entertaining experience.If you are expecting a larger than life story telling kind of a movie then this may not be a good choice to watch.Rock is a really cool actor and personality but he cannot do much infront of a dump plot.Overall, "San Andreas" is a repetitive and boring movie with a dull plot.

Verdict:- Average

Ratings:- 2 / 5 Stars
