Epicenter (2000)

Epicenter is an action movie and a disaster movie, and an espionage movie, and a thriller. Sounds like too many ideas rolled into one and it feels like it too.

There is a lot to be said in praise of Epicenter considering it’s a low budget production, car chases/crashes, well designed sets, inventive props and good use of miniatures and matte paintings. The plot and acting lets the thing down.

As I said before there are too many different elements thrown together. The espionage and action parts would suffice, so why include an earthquake?

A case of trying too hard.
