08.06.06Netflix It's been a long long time since I saw this... I was really a kid and I think it was on TV... like TV with commercials TV. So... yeah I don't know how these disaster movies got to be in vogue for that short time... they're really pretty ridiculous. It's great that so many stars get on screen together but, at least here, you can tell each one including a prerequisite number of "drama" scenes in their contract. The deaths get pretty operatic by the end... talking to god and whatnot... so completely over the top but I guess when you're stuck in an upside-down boat that's sinking or you're on some massive soundstage with water tanks and propane fires and you're tired and wet and greasy there's no such thing as overdoing it. At least Billy Zane wasn't in it.
