Dwayne Johnson Takes On Mother Nature in San Andreas

I’m a sucker for disaster films, no matter how cheesy and formulaic they are, I just can’t enough of them.

The latest slice on the disaster cheese board is San Andreas and after reading the blurb I was already pre-ordering my popcorn and cinema seat.

After the infamous San Andreas Fault finally gives, triggering a magnitude 9 earthquake in California, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife  (Because nothing says disaster film like failed marriage) make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter (Who I bet is probably estranged from one or both of her parents). But their treacherous journey north is only the beginning.  And when they think the worst may be over…it’s just getting started.

So to recap a giant earthquake with The Rock…sorry Dwayne Johnson in the centre of it all? What’s not to like?

My only question after reading the blurb is WHERE IS THE DOG???? I mean you can’t call yourself a proper disaster film unless there is a dog in the mix. Hmm I wonder if the pooch from Independence Day is still working?

Of course I reckon the film will probably be spoilt by Superman making a cameo at the end and turning back time like the first time the San Andreas fault like got mucked up in Supes The Movie. Bloody Boy Scout.

Anyhoo the disaster cheese train is rolling out of the station so jump on, check out the trailer and hold on tight.
