Skip it. Watch Dante's Peak instead.

Ow. Pain. Lots of pain. From the horrible acting, to the impossible situations, to the complete and utter lack of geology, this movie left a bad taste in my mouth. Even When Time Ran Out had a more realistic eruption. I've never seen such a pathetic pyroclastic flow in my life. "Forming a new magma chamber under the west face," my foot. If you want to see a volcano movie that makes only a few mistakes (most of them being exaggerations), watch Dante's Peak.

When snow meets lava

This is a typical cash in television film. In 1997 there were two disaster themed films due for cinema release with Volcano and Dante's Peak hitting the big screen at a similar time frame. This was a lower budget affair which you know would hit the video market first with frankly a nonsensical script and even more nonsense action sequences. An inactive volcano in a ski resort starts to show signs of activity with locals being sceptical. When it does erupt the volcano expert decides to start an avalanche and outrun the avalanche on skis and then cross it with the lava and somehow cool the lava. One of the skiers who got swallowed by the avalanche suddenly turns up at the end without a scratch or snowflake on him, just after the said avalanche crashed all over the log cabin by the mountain and left it undamaged. The film is silly, the acting is wooden and the script is bad. The sheer audacity of it all means it deserves more than one star.

Believable.

OK, Volcano: Fire On The Mountain is not a blockbuster movie. It doesn't pretend to be - it's a TV movie! It doesn't have any actors I've ever heard of which, in itself, seems to pre-determine some viewers' opinion of it. But why does an hour-and-a-half's free entertainment need to be studded with mega-stars for it to be appreciated? My contention is that it doesn't! In some ways, this movie is fairly "ordinary" in that it portrays a very believable event in a very believable way. Sure, it needs to have some super-heroic deeds incorporated into it (which it does) otherwise it would just be a news broadcast! Nevertheless, those dramatic events are, in this movie, dramatically realistic. I don't intend to detail exactly what those dramatic events are (because I would then have to click the spoilers box and I think it would be better for you to judge for yourselves). Suffice to say that real things happen to real people in real situations and those things are told in an exciting way. No, Volcano isn't ever going to get mentioned at the Emmys - but then how much of what we watch on our TVs ever is? It isn't boring and, to be honest, I enjoyed it and I think you will too. Just remember - you get what you pay for and, since this costs nothing, it is worth a lot more than that!
