San Andreas Review

The Rock in a disaster movie. Don’t need to say anymore

San Andreas stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Alexandra Daddario, Carla Gugino, Ioan Gruffudd and Paul Giamatti.

When Lawrence (Paul Giamatti) and his team manage to make a piece of equipment that can predict when and how big an earthquake is going to be. But when he tries to tell people they don’t listen. But when a massive earthquake hits Los Angeles, Ray (Dwayne Johnson), who is a rescue helicopter pilot, he must go in and save his ex-wife, Emma (Carla Gugino). But can they get to their daughter, Blake (Alexandra Daddario), who is San Francisco before another earthquake strikes or are they too late?

Disaster movies receive a lot of criticism because they all focus on characters. San Andreas isn’t any different. This movie is so generic. If you have seen a disaster movie then you know exactly how this film is going to happen. We get the typical hero, a teenager in trouble, a bad guy you don’t really care if they live or not and bad CGI. The CGI looked like something out of a video game and it was really obvious when they used CGI and when they used green screen. The story is so generic and the movie did lose me at points because it was so predictable and the down time between the action was dull. But honestly because this movie has The Rock in, somehow he makes it more interesting. Because The Rock is such a likeable action hero he really elevates the film but it is still not good. I also thought that Alexandra Daddario did okay in her role but everyone was pretty average.

Overall, I rate San Andreas 6/10! There are good fun moments in the film and it is enjoyable in parts when the action is happening.
