San Andreas is pretty awesome

5 second plot: When the mother of all earthquakes hits California rescue chopper pilot Ray has to give it all he's got to save his wife and daughter.

5 second review: Of course it's not realistic and of course the dramatic set-up is simple. This is all about the action. And the action is pretty awesome. The effects are spectacular and the cast does a great job convincing us that they are really seeing what we are seeing. I totally believed it. Well, maybe not totally. But I was definitely rooting for the cast to survive (millions probably died, but this movie wasn't about them, was it?).

IMDb score: 6,5/10
Our score: 7/10
