Our protagonist is a geologist who is stationed at this town and works in a team to study and monitor potential rock-slides etc. He of course has a family, which like any other disaster flick, acts as the main source of drama. Now, I liked the main dude, he delivered a decent performance. Some of the other actors were pretty OK too while some were meh.
Best thing about this movie was that it reminded me of older hollywood disaster flicks, like Dante's Peak. It wasn't fast paced or filled with destruction etc, but rather took its time to build up the disaster. It was pretty short as well, so it didn't felt boring or anything. The scale was very small though, I wish there was one more big thing after the wave but can't blame the movie too much for it as budget was very small.
The CGI was surprisingly good, especially considering the minuscule budget of the film. I enjoyed the main scene quite a bit, and the wave indeed looked terrifying. The soundtrack was pretty decent as well. The location was simply BEAUTIFUL and the Cinematography took full advantage of it. I really wanna visit the town now. Interesting thing is that the movie is based off on actual events
It certainly had some clear influences from Hollywood and had incorporated similar stuff. Several cliches and stupid character decisions and moments, especially at the end, which was just a too focused cliche scene. All this made the movie pretty predictable as well. Atleast the movie wasn't cheesy AF.
Overall, it was a decent watch for my disaster movie itch. If you like disaster movies, definitely give this one a try.
