Excellent Disaster Film

on 3/1/2003

In the film, a volcanologist discovers that the picturesque town of Dante's Peak, which has recently been named the second most desirable place to live in America, is being threatened by a massive volcano that has been dormant for the past four years. "Dante's Peak" is incredibly superior to the slew of disaster flicks that have been released since the monster success of "Twister." Yes, the plot is nothing original, but the film is fueled by very believable performances and first-rate effects. It is constantly compared to "Volcano," which hit theaters shortly after "Dante's Peak." "Volcano" features talented actors, but has cheesy-looking effects and a very contrived ending. In my opinion, comparing these two films is insane, as "Dante's Peak" is easily much better than "Volcano." In short, "Dante's Peak" is worth the rental price at least, and should not be overlooked. It is a great film with strong acting and the most realistic effects since "Twister."

Editors Note
Note A volcanologist forlorn over the loss of his wife in the Mt. Pinatubo eruption arrives at a small Pacific Northwest town to investigate the rumblings of the local dormant volcano. Though he instantly fears the worse, he must convince the skeptical townspeople and his suspicious superiors who believe he is overreacting in the aftermath of his own tragedy. The beautiful, widowed mayor of the picturesque town believes him, however, and soon they find themselves in a fight for their lives as "Dante's Peak" blows its stack ten miles high, raining ash and fire over everything in its shadow. The Signature Collection Special Edition laserdisc includes added commentary by the director and production designer, a behind-the-scenes documentary, and an isolated score.
