Quakes. Riots. Mudslides. Los Angeles has seen it all… almost. Get set for non-stop action, searing suspense and explosive special effects with Oscar® winner Tommy Lee Jones. Something unspeakably chilling is heating up the City of Angels. Beneath the famed La Brea Tar Pits, a raging volcano has formed, raining a storm of deadly fire bombs and an endless tide of white-hot lava upon the stunned city. Experience the pulse-pounding thrills as the dream capital of the world erupts into the stuff nightmares are made of.
Get mindless for awhile with this 1997 disaster flick, starring the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles as a funky place for lava to spew, plus Tommy Lee Jones and Anne Heche as the brave souls who know how to shut off the spout. Director Mick Jackson (The Bodyguard
) wastes no time getting to the good stuff--it's happening in Volcano
even before opening credits are over--and neither should anyone in the mood for technical efficiency without the burden of art. --Tom Keogh
