SAN ANDREAS (UK CERT: 12A)
Director: Brad Peyton
Music: Andrew Lockington
Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Kylie Minogue
REVIEW AUTHOR: Adam Brannon
Who doesn’t love a good disaster movie? From Dante’s Peak to The Day After Tomorrow, there’s enough city-levelling action in the movie archives to terrify even the most urban of us.
The genre came to a head somewhat in 2009 with the overly cheesy 2012. Directed by Roland Emmerich, aka the disaster movie king, it was a huge box-office success but audiences were turned off by the idea of destroying the entire globe.
After a few years off, the genre returns with San Andreas. But can this earthquake-based blockbuster evoke memories of yesteryear’s disaster flicks?
