Of the series, comes closest to being a not-bad movie. But that's not saying much, and '77 and '79 are more fun to watch for a laugh.
Both starpower￼ & action are upped this time, but it’s still only marginally entertaining. Heston’s turtleneck is what I’ll￼ remember most.
Get yourself a copy of Towering Inferno and Earthquake! and have a 70's disaster fest. Huge cast, contrived suspense, lousy fashion !!
