SAN ANDREAS (2015): For The Visual Effects and…

Directed by Brad Peyton; Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, and Paul Giamatti are the stars of San Andreas – that California earthquake movie you may have heard about over the summer.

You may also have heard that the visual effects are breathtaking and they are. However, the thing I enjoyed most is actually the unique father daughter relationship. San Andreas isn’t a bad movie, there’s just nothing that feels particularly new about it, therefore making it feel not quite as epic as I’d hoped.

Some random things came to mind as I watched:

  • On account of all the dust, running, falling and screaming, how much fun was being an extra on this movie, really?
  • I honestly don’t recall the last time I saw such excellent mother/ daughter casting.
  • You’d have to be blind not to notice Alexandra Daddario’s eyeballs. If you’ve seen the film, I know you noticed!
  • I better be careful because I don’t know anyone that would come and rescue me at a time when the traditional emergency services cannot. But then again… you never know. Just don’t rely on it, of course. But still, you never know…

If by this point you’re still curious, watch it for the impressive visual effects and all else that appeals.

Happy Film Loving 🙂
