Dante's peak

Possible spoilers.
My main problem with the movie is, it is far to much clichéd. Pierce Brosnan as a geologist who thinks that a vulcano somewhere in a town, named "Dante's Peak" will maybe awake falls is love with the divorced mayor, who has kids which can and are allowed to drive with the car and not ´being older than 12. At first the town refuses to listen and, of course, the vulcano awakes.
There are so many unrealistic features in this film. Some examples.

The earthquake begins, and the other geologist tells PB that the national security can only come tomorrow. WTH? How must the call have been?
We have a vulcano exploding here. We need help!!!!
Oh, we are going to come tomorrow ok? :)

When the earthquake begins and half the town is in ashes. our fr...

Dante’s Peak is about a so called ‘extinct’ volcano located in Washington. A volcanologist named Harry Dalton is wanted to search the volcano to make sure that it is extinct because they have seen some seismic activity there. He goes and checks it out and along the way he meets the mayor of the town and her 2 kids. After they discover 2 people floating dead in a pool of hot springs and dead animals in the forest, his team and he soon discover that the volcano is dormant and about to erupt! I researched some of the events that occurred in the movie and a high percentage of them were true. The dead animals, the boat that float across the acid and that and eruption can turn a lake into volcanic acid. This movie is very entertaining, keeps you wanting to watch more to see what happens to th...

Dante's Peak

Movie Review: Dante’s Peak

This is about a big Volcano named Dante’s Peak. It killed many people and turned day to night. It put a whole bed of ash on the town and it was very deadly. Harry Dalton is a volcanologist and came into town to look at this volcano. He found out that the volcano was the water source for the town and before it erupted, it made the water brown because it was mixed with sulfur. Harry also helped the family get away from all of the lava, so they traveled across the lake by boat, but the volcano turned that to sulfuric acid, so all the fish died and when people tried to swim in it to get away, it didn’t work! Grandma was one of those people, and it didn’t turn out very well. This is a very good movie and I would recommend it to everyone. So watch it!
