    After the Shock

Rating:

Disaster:

Earthquake

Plot Summary:

Filmed almost like a documentary, 'After the Shock' is a film depicting the stories of the brave members of the public and emergency services who rescued trapped people after the 1989 San Francisco Earthquake.

Comments:

Essentially a docudrama, this film reeks of low budget TV viewing, that struggles to entertain. Nice use of the interrupted sports broadcast to announce the onset of the earthquake, though.

Special Effects:

The special effects in this film were limited to localised shots of the aftermath. Some stock footage was used as well as genuinely realistic looking sets.
