Not a disaster movie then. Not horror either. Thriller - really not enough plot for that. Torture porn? All goes too quickly to gain any satisfaction from the gore.

I can see what they tried to do. They spent a LOT of time building the characters so you would gain some empathy towards them so when an earthquake strikes you would feel a little sympathy and root for them. However as you will no doubt hate all the characters you lose interest when they start to die off in gruesome ways. The humour doesn't work. (Oh no my hand has fallen off, oh no, everybody has started to kick it around in the panic like the antidote from Temple of Doom...) then after the overly long character building phase is complete they do a quick earthquake, panic ensues, prisoners escape and start going on the rampage against the authorities for some reason instead of trying to escape, we find out that man is the real monster and then you get the twist at the end, which was telegraphed multiple times throughout the movie so if you didn't see it coming you must have a cabbage for a head.

The main chunk of the movie goes quite quickly and I am sure all the character building stuff at the start took up more run time. I'd check but I really don't want to see any of this movie again.

There really is absolutely nothing at all to recommend.

The first 20 minutes was very boring as a group of young people went nightclubbing in Chile with nothing to engage the viewer beyond the banal seen countless times before. I wanted to switch off and now wish I had. The annoying comic tone gave way to something extremely nasty as the earthquake narrative hit home. After that there was a low budget kill-em-off-one-by-one movie drowning in sadism and general unpleasantness. Some of it was repellent - and that's not a recommendation. Was it a disaster movie? Not really. Was it a horror film? Not really. Was it any good? No! The badly written script made some of it ridiculous: the whole escaped convicts storyline was unbelievable given the earthquake going around and I suspect that viewers with tattoos might take exception to the idea that if you are inked you're a sadistic criminal. Given that I did not care about any of the characters, the sense of tension that should have existed was absent. I couldn't see the point of the film at all. The best thing about this was it was just under 90 minutes. Do your self a favour and make better use of 90 minutes of your life with the host of good disaster movies to choose from.

Two fun loving guys (Ariel Levy, Nicolás Martínez) and Gringo (Eli Roth) meet a hot Russian model and her two European friends while vacationing in Chile. Character is built for half the film, about 10 minutes too long. We get to know the characters fairly well in this time and they are all flawed. The earthquake hits and anarchy reigns supreme as criminals escape from a prison.

Outside of Nicolas Martinez as a Chilean Zach Galifianakis, I found the film boring, even with the young hot chicks. I didn't feel the horror or terror of what is more like a bad street snuff film.

Not recommended even as a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, rape. Brief nudity-Male butt nudity, scrots, woman with pasties.

This so did not live up to its description. There is nothing epic about this beyond its predictable banality. After 25 minutes of the tourist trail I was beginning to wonder if I had accidentally clicked on an information film by the Chile Tourist Board. I get the point of introducing us to the victims but really the vinyard tour? I love the idea that you can identify an escaped prisoner by their tattoos but am now terrified to leave my house in London.

Eli Roth (Cabin Fever) really has gone downhill. There was a time when he was hailed as a something refreshingly new in the horror genre. However, if `Aftershock' is anything to go by, he really has lost his muse.

It's about a group of people, holidaying in Chile when an earthquake hits. The first problem is that all the characters are pretty unlikeable, spending their time trying to pull, moaning or taking drugs. This might not be too bad if the story quickly moves on to the action, but it takes the best part of the film for the earthquake to hit. By this time you really won't care much if any of them (besides Roth himself, who's `fish-out-of-waterness' is quite endearing) live or die.

Apparently in Chile, the general population consists of looters, rapists and murderers, for as soon as the earthquake hits, the country descends into anarchy. Then our - pretty horrid - heroes find themselves being pursued by people only slightly more unlikeable then themselves.

This film has no real redeeming features - a few moments of gore (which I didn't know whether were supposed to be humours or not) and that's about it. Granted there are worse movies, but there are a million better ones. If you do decide to watch it, you might as well start the film at about 45 minutes - at least you'll skip the bits that are even more tedious than the last 45 minutes.

With poor films you can usually find some redeeming features, maybe the special effects, maybe some originality, or maybe you can watch for the unintentional hilarity. This film achieves nothing.
Oh how bad it is. The cover and tag lines would have you believe you are in for excitement, gore, suspense - all of which fail to materialise, along with decent acting, directing or script.
Don't even bother if this film is cheap, you will be sorely disappointed.
