Comments:

Excellent! Great cinematography, music, plot and special effects. The characters are enjoyable and and a little stereotypical which makes it even more fun considering the age of the film. Its a suspenseful but quite lengthy film.

Special Effects:

The special effects are excellent. Models, in conjunction with slow motion photography are used primarily for the effects shots and this makes for convincing and exciting disaster sequences.
