Movie Reviews

Boring, trite, just plain silly
O. Brown | Twopeas, WA | 11/21/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

About the only thing interesting or worthwhile about this movie is the special effects of the tsunami...but even those aren't so great. This movie is universally bad. So bad it's almost funny, though, which is why I gave it a star.

The script is absolutely terrible and not believable at all. I wasn't expecting much, but thought it would be interesting to see a movie about a tsunami; unfortunately, I was wrong. Don't waste your time or money. Don't even rent it...really.
Dear screenwriters: please don't write scripts. Ever.

"Action packed from the get-go, some might say. On the edge of your seat always, others add. Lemme tell you something: action consists of a few gunfights and I was on the edge of my seat when I leaned over a little too much, but it was rectified when I scooted back.

Tidal waves strike away. Clearly, these are the works of a madman. Granted, I think my first bet would be to blame the moon, but who are we to argue? Hilarity ensues, featuring normal waves shot from below to make themselves look bigger and actors being sprayed by high powered hoses.

My favorite part of the movie was when the characters claimed a mad general wanted to destroy Mount Fuji by creating a tidal wave. Mount Fuji, a massive mountain that has survived earthquakes, tsunamis, and hundreds of years of weather being destroyed by a TIDAL WAVE? Even better was when a tidal wave was coming to shore and our heroes drive a boat through it before the wave topples a cruise liner. That's right folks. A small boat can speed through the same wave that can turn a massive cruise liner on its side.

Who said Hollywood is a competitive market, again?

Don't watch. Its 2 am, why am I wasting my time with this review? Oh by the way: screenwriters, listen up. Huge waves caused by disruptions in the sea floor are called tsunamis, not tidal waves. Tidal waves are affected by the tide, hence the name. Willickers."
Silly tele-disaster flick awash with stupidity
Chadwick H. Saxelid | Concord, CA United States | 02/14/2001

"Corbin (The Dentist) Bernson is a famous scientist who, do to some ethical and emotional trauma, has turned his back on the world to play with his pet dog and surf. Too bad his past as a super-duper weapons designer catches up with him as man made tidal waves threaten life as we know it in the U.S. of A! Julianne Phillips shows up to provide love interest and Gregg (Body Double) Henry is the hissable government goon that is convinced that it's all really Corbin's doing. Laurence Hilton Jacobs (of Welcome Back Kotter fame) plays an FBI agent, but since he's the token black he doesn't make it to the half way point of this made for television disaster thriller. The special effects are, naturally, TV movie level so they're pretty darn bad (computer generated super waves and water blown out of hoses) and the acting only a little bit better. These people need better agents if they are getting cast in junk like this."
Poor Tidal Wave- FAKE
Russell Ashenberg | USA | 04/09/2006

"I really felt that this move deserves less than a star. Its plot was not done well and the use of a nuclear missle to cause a tidal wave does not hold much water - Sorry for the pun. I would not waist my money and buy this. The entire plot and suspense was not good. I watched it and felt I waisted my time. I did not really go for it."
