Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Deep beneath the streets of 'Los Angeles' a fire storm is bubbling and
about too blow.
The city lies between two major fault lines including including the
infamous 'San Andreas Fault' are used to frequent mini-quakes (one day
a quake will almost certainly be powerful enough to be a life-changer)
'MacArthur Park' begins to show signs of early volcanic activity.
The park has to be closed subject to investigation after two workmen
are killed by an intense heat blast whilst working in the drainage beneath
the park.
'Mike Roark' an emergency management official is warned by scientist'Dr Amy
Barnes' that the recent quake could open a fissure allowing magna to spew
to the surface.
A little later 'Mike' and daughter 'Kelly' get caught up during the early
moments of the eruption only to find there is a whole lot more to come.
When a massive flow of lava threatens to engulf a significant region of
L.A. 'Mike' with the advice of 'Amy' to hand, takes charge in an effort
to stem the flow,
An exciting all-action affair with, considering the film was released in
'1997' has pretty impressive 'Special effects'
A pretty acceptable transfer to the HD format....good picture and sound
quality.
Unusually the Blu-ray disc has no additional features on board.
(maybe that will change when on general HD release)
Currently only available on 'Region A'

Although this film is very silly it's highly entertaining and fast paced, the title says it all, it's just good to see how a volcano would erupt under a city and how that particular city would handle it.....

Sadly this film is encoded to region A and will not work on uk players unless they are multi-zone

Audio: Dolby TrueHD 5.1 (Sounds good a big improvement over the dvd 7/10)
Image: Widescreen 1:85:1 (full use of your screen NO black lines, a HUGE improvement over the DVD 8/10)

Wasted Upgrade 30 April 2014
By Micchael F. Dassau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Great Movie, but the blu-ray disc sucks - Big Time!! It's a bare bones release, auto play loop. Only the High-Def movie. No Menu. No Scene Selection. No Language setting. No Subtitles Settings. No extras. The DVD release is better. It, at least, has a menu and disc settings. I give it two thumbs down. I wanted to upgrade, but I feel ripped off by the release.

Look at their faces; they all look the same. 14 July 2014
By Z. Freeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This little end-of-the-world (where LA is a stand-in for the world) thriller covers a few days in the life of Office of Emergency Management employee Mike Roark (Tommy Lee Jones) as he improbably works with geologist Dr. Amy Barnes (Anne Heche) to avert disaster on the streets of LA - and improbably escape near death repeatedly - when a volcano erupts and destroys a bunch of stuff.

It's got the standard sentimentality of a Hollywood actioner: a father-daughter relationship at its center (the father is divorced and the mother is never seen) and a little love story blossoms amidst all the destruction. There's a lot of focus on the logistics of stopping the lava flow which I'm sure is very pseudo-sciencey and Jones somehow outruns a collapsing building to save his daughter.

Still, this thing moves along at a quick pace and there are a good amount of deadpanned one-liners. In short, it's got everything a good action movie should have, including the absolutely epic and heavy-handed, one-liner from a little boy looking at all the people covered in ash: "Look at their faces; they all look the same."

Disappointed on blu ray 27 Nov. 2013
By IAN M BLADUELL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Audio was weak for a blu ray and the video transfer had too many imperfections considering age of the movie. This blu ray not worth more than $5.00 as new.

"THRILLING, EXPLOSIVE ACTION, AND ENTERTAINING FROM START TO FINISH!" 26 Jan. 2015
By Geraldine Ahearn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
We have watched this countless times, and always find it just as enjoyable as the first viewing. In fact, on some movie nights, we will watch this, back-to-back with 'Independence Day.' 'Volcano' is as exciting & grabs your attention and keeps it throughout the movie, just like 'Independence Day' does. Tommy Lee Jones is at his Best in acting performance, as well as the entire cast.

L.A. was Not prepared for what was about to happen, and when 'Volcano' decided to invade & cause chaos, the movie became more-and-more thrilling. Sound Effects & Special Effects were totally awesome, and you were compelled to find out how it ended, and who survives.

The explosive action had you on the edge-of-your-seat through some scenes, and the entertainment continues, until the final curtains close. Thrilling, action-packed, and entertaining throughout. Highly recommended!
