Filming[ edit ] Filming was shot primarily on location in Los Angeles, California.
This, then, should fare rather better than the little seen Brosnan starrer.
Instead it works best falling back on those trusty disaster genre staples: Make that two dogs. When the lake in MacArthur Park reaches bath-time temperature, seismologist Barnes drops by and begins to fear the worst.
Concerned LA emergency services chief Roark does his cautious best to keep the city going. But then Barnes reports that a vent is "possible" and all of a sudden, anything is. The fissure beneath the park first fries her seismologist buddy then starts spewing the hot stuff and raining fiery rock bombs onto terrified Angelenos.
So far, so daft, so good. Then strap yourself in and enjoy the ride. Strap yourself in very tightly, in fact, because Volcano races along at the pace of a firetruck - even though those in the movie are usually stranded and stationary or unfathomably trying to put out fires in buildings that are being engulfed and demolished by lava.
Equally amusing is the moment when, with seemingly half the Pacific Ocean being dropped from a swarm of helicopters, no one below gets wet. That, and a sequence showing hell-on-earth Hieronymus Bosch paintings being rescued from a gallery prove that LA Story director Jackson has retained his healthy sense of humour.
So too Tommy Lee Jones, who hams it up while somehow bringing dignity to a role that forces him to wrestle with a script and an errant child that do him and his character no favours.
