Shockwave When massive volcanic storms begin to spew from the Earth, geophysicist Kate Ferris tries to convince the Department of Defense that this is no natural phenomenon. They’re the result of a seismic super weapon known as the Hell Storm device; and now that it’s been activated, the shockwaves it sends out will destroy major cities across the globe, killing millions. When her claims fall on deaf ears, Kate teams up with her daughter and estranged husband at the San Andreas fault line to find a way to counteract the destruction. As Kate and her family navigate the fault, they find themselves directly at the epicenter of the largest shockwave yet. Now, in a harrowing race against the clock, Kate must figure out how to stop the shockwave before its effects seal humanity’s fate once and for all.
Shockwave: Not actually terrible
It tells the story of a super weapon that has been set off and is burrowing through earth causing rampant eartquakes that are gradually tearing the world apart.
It’s your usual generic cliched to hell disaster movie stuff that has every trope going. A goverment who don’t listen to the warnings, an estranged couple who are both experts in this particular field, the whiney kid of the estranged couple, every country getting destroyed but it being the US who save the day etc etc etc.
CGI is average, performances are slightly above average and the plot is a combination of fairly good and really quite terrible. It get’s weirdly dark in places, has your standard filler middle and sickly sweet finale.
For what it is it’s actually above par, against your average film however and it’s still a mess.
The Good : Has its moments
