Storyline

An endless string of minor tremors near the already unstable San Andreas Fault threatens to set in motion an unprecedented swarm of earthquakes in bustling Los Angeles when a greedy oil company uses the controversial fracking technique. With his teenage daughter heading straight into the epicentre of the problem, the engineer and fracking operation supervisor, Jack, along with the discredited geologist, Gladstone, and the young USGS scientist, Emily, must come up with an effective countermeasure before a super-earthquake--the dreaded Big One--obliterates the entire city. Can they avert the ultimate geological Armageddon? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

First use of a Hackintosh I've seen in a movie. At around the 7:30 to 8 min mark you see a Dr. Gladstone using a Dell XPS laptop complete with Intel and Windows stickers on it, but it is clearly running Mac OS X 10.9. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, a man is seen burning his hand on a hot valve. This is shown quite clearly, but, not 2 minutes later, he is using the same hand to try and lift a buddy out of danger. With that level of burn, he would not be able to use that hand at all. See more »

The faults of our fracking
22 February 2015 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Its one of these Syfy channel productions with a cheesy comedy disaster scenario and equally cheesy special effects.

There are a series of small earthquakes tearing apart Los Angeles. Two scientists believe that it is all building to a super-quake that will drop the entire city into a lava filled basin. They show this by hitting a hammer on a car windscreen and still having to rely on bad CGI effects for this demonstration to work.

An Engineer whose company is responsible for the quakes due to their fracking activities helps the scientists with a bizarre plan to somehow divert the epic enter to a less populated area of LA and save millions of lives.

The film starts of slowly enough as the fissures lead to people disappearing in various scenarios although we get an eyeful of some lovely ladies in bikinis. There is some nice location shots of various parts of LA as the film tries to set the scene.

However we just wait and wait for the 10.0 Earthquake and get teased with some fault lines here, the Capitol Building being wrecked there but its really a poorly written film with cheap effects and a crummy plot.
