"Earthquake: Nature Unleashed (Tibor Takacs, 2004)

Ah, Tibor Takacs, the man who has me half-convinced that the Sci-Fi Channel really does commission its original films rather than picking up things that couldn't get distributed any other way. The plot, for what it is: a series of earthquakes warns, then strikes, a Russian nuclear plant. The warnings are, of course, ignored by the head of the plant, who presses on at the behest of the greedy American company trying to get the thing online while not straying too far over budget. Of course, to pound in the message, the representative of said company and its safety consultant used to be married, and they have two kids who are in danger because the plant's core might melt down and any second and wipe Russia off the map.

That you can possibly ask "why should we care?" at such a premise is the mark of a truly bad movie, and that's exactly what you'll find yourself asking numerous times here. The script is atrocious, the acting even more so (including one actor who comes off so wooden it's impossible to figure out whether he's supposed to be playing a Russian trying to speak English-- without a trace of an accent, mind you-- or an American who's simply a really bad actor. Either way, the effect is hilarious). The plot is horribly thin, far too much so to hold this mess together. Avoid at all costs. (zero)"
Above-average Earthquake Movie

"An earthquake cripples a Russian nuclear power plant threatening a meltdown, and it's a race against time to avert the disaster. Add into the mix a Russian supervisor who refuses to accept the idea of anything wrong, and will stop at nothing to keep the truth from getting out, even if it means locking the engineer near the core, and trying to run away when confronted with the truth.

This movie is well-paced, and doesn't take long to get started. And once it gets going, you're on a rollercoaster ride of suspense. The scene in the elevator shaft reminds me of the suspense in TOWERING INFERNO and POSEIDON ADVENTURE. The kids are very believable American youngsters trying to deal with their parents' separation, and fate forces them to work together. Maybe it's all cliche, maybe not. But I like this movie. Maybe the special effects were taken from DANTE'S PEAK (as one reviewer from IMDB mentioned), I don't know. Frankly, I don't care, since they're very brief and quick. Only when scenes are obviously stolen from other movies do I care, like when they stole footage from AIRPORT 1975 to create SONIC IMPACT. But try it yourself. You may be surprised."
A good tv movie....thats about it

"Take this movie as a movie that could play on TV and you wont be dissapointed. ive seen lots of earthquake movies..and some are really really bad, but this not that bad."

"One in a series of NATURE UNLEASHED disaster flicks, this one details an earthquake in Russia that threatens a meltdown at a nuclear power plant, one that could wipe out a million people. Into this maelstrom comes an energy representative who visits the plant to insure its ready to go online. This rep happens to be the ex-husband of the plant's manager, who has his two teenage children living with her in Russia. The special fx look borrowed from previous films (one reviewer on IMDB says it's DANTE'S PEAK?). There's little that isn't predictable, and the acting is barely adequate, but it holds you long enough to get involved in the disaster, and it has the requisite happy ending."
