San Andreas : Movie Review

 

Trailer For those who haven’t seen it yet..

This movie is a total Eye Candy. San Andreas delivers on what it promises. Undeniably it is low on powerhouse performances. San Andreas crams exposition, coincidence, and bad shortcuts into the mix with half-drawn characters, and it’s hard to care. The CG work brilliantly builds the story’s menace factor but anyways  when it comes to the story part its pretty average. The story is brimful with every cliche in the book that this genre might have chronicled. One can fault the film for lacking inventiveness, but in terms of its entertainment quotient, it’s an enthralling treat for those who have the appetite to digest mass-destruction in movies.

Although Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Rock’ solid performance minimizes the risk of the movie turning into a debacle, which was a strong possibility given its unexciting story. But Johnson delivers cheesy punch lines with his trademark panache that gives his character the charisma and the film its ardour.

It’s advisable you view this one with minimal hopes, keeping intact a neutral approach. San Andreas despite its weak plot and improper timing, has its exhilarating moments and is definitely worth a watch.

PLOT : A seemingly ideal day turns disastrous when California’s notorious San Andreas fault triggers a devastating, magnitude 9 earthquake, the largest in recorded history. As the Earth cracks open and buildings start to crumble, Ray Gaines (Dwayne Johnson), an LAFD search-and-rescue helicopter pilot, must navigate the destruction from Los Angeles to San Francisco to bring his estranged wife (Carla Gugino) and their only daughter (Alexandra Daddario) to safety.
