I have just seen San Andreas, the earthquake movie starring the Rock, Dwayne Johnson. How would I describe it? It could be the next ride in Disney Land. It was supposed to be for 3D screens, but for normal screens too. The action sequence and CGI were awesome amazing and it looked real. I hope this film get’s nominated for an Oscar, for outstanding visual effects. Without them, it will look like someone shaking the table and a fake wall would come down. The 3D effects were implied in the film. The action was coming at you. The debris and total destruction was all over. Massive. And who comes and save the “The Rock” his daughter is not that bad at all. She almost died. I cried. Did you cried too? I need her.
