I really enjoyed San Andreas. I went in expecting to see a ridiculously over-the-top depiction of an earthquake, and I was not disappointed. There was also a surprisingly good human story in there—surprising because while I could see the formula, and while everybody played straight to type, I didn’t care. I was engaged, and had a good time.
They did screw up the last line of the film, missing a great opportunity that probably wasn’t obvious to them until after all the set dressing had been added, but still, they missed it. Oh well.
San Andreas enters at #8 on my “how much fun did I have at the theater” scale for the year, and the unexpectedly enjoyable character story (visible recipe pages notwithstanding) squeaks it above my Threshold of Awesome.
