San Andreas (2015)I usually don't dip my toe into the disaster flick of any given year,… More I usually don't dip my toe into the disaster flick of any given year, but of course, with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson making an appearance in one, I had to! I had a few moments in awe of the special effects and complete and total destruction, but I wasn't left feeling any different by the end of it. The cast really sold a lot of the silliness you see from the special effects. I watched a brief video about how they pretty much had to act like the world was crumbling all around them when, in fact, nothing was moving in studio. Everything you see is added post-filming. Because of this, you need great actors like The Rock, the beautiful Carla Gugino and the exquisite Alexandra Daddario. However, if there is ONE actor off the top of my head I need to sell the absolute most ridiculous plot or scene, it's Paul Giamatti. He is awesome. So much weight is in his delivery he could floor you with a performance for baby diapers and make them seem like the most crucial piece of material on earth. Now, while I didn't get a chance to see this on the big screen, I was convinced at the sheer size and scope of the film with so many sky scrapers falling and waves toppling I could look past some of the CGI mishaps. Overall, I never felt like this was anything more than a day in the life of one family who survived the worst environmental tragedy on earth as opposed to the next family that survived off screen. This one just got lucky they had The Rock to bail them out.
