Good effects and cast in cheesy disaster fun

"Not one of Irwin Allen's best, but overall a fun time with a huge all-star cast trying to escape peril from an erupting volcano. Good to see it arrive on DVD at last, but the mystery is why Warner Home Video isn't releasing the expanded 2 1/2 hour version they previously released on VHS, and which was shown on network television. They used the expanded version of The Swarm both on DVD and the older laserdisc releases (which actually made that one a much better movie), so since they're doing this release as part of a Paul newman tribute series, why the shortchanging for this movie when they obviously have the longer version in their archives?"
Why NO EXPANDED EDITION on DVD Warner Bros????

"Very dissapointed in this release. Letterboxed presentation looks great but all previous VHS versions clocked in at 141 mins. The DVD is only 109 mins. A cars flying off a cliff, Alex Karras chasing around a rooster during an earthquake, more fireballs hitting near the hotel, and countless other scenes that made this disaster movie a extra campy disaster film are gone. What give Warner Home Video???"
Bad News Not the full version!!

"Sorry folks - This is not the 121 min. nor is it the 141 min. version
Warners has seen fit to release this in a 109 min. version - for what reason I do not know. SO Beware if yoy are looking for the most complete version"
Altogether, not bad entertainment!

"In spite of the panning from the critics, this is a disaster movie I still enjoy to this day. The story is of a volcano threatening a tropical island where a new hotel is being opened . . . not a new idea, but the source of the disaster and all the mayhem that unfolds is a good forerunner to superior movies such as VOLCANO and DANTE'S PEAK. There are good guys and there are bad guys, and there are old faces like Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons(THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE), Paul Newman(TOWERING INFERNO) and HILL STREET BLUES's Veronica Hamel(remember her?) starring, to name but a few. The action and special effects may appear a bit cheesy in places, but this film sure delivers two hours or so of good entertainment."
