"Whatever you do don't look back!" Even if you don't look back, I think the volcano is gonna get you. Part of the disaster movie mania of the 90s, which also included "Twister," "Deep Impact," "Armageddon," and, of course, the other volcano movie, cleverly called "Volcano." In this the small town of Dante's Peak is threatened by a volcano, but the town is slow to act for fear of scaring off tourists, which recalls "Jaws." Pierce Brosnan is a not very convincing scientist and Linda Hamiton is the town mayor. So really they should've called it "James Bond & Sarah Connor vs. Volcano." The volcano gives a great performance. The destruction is enjoyable in a cheesy sort of way. Entertaining for what it is. Brosnan and director Roger Donaldson would work together again on "The November Man," which I don't think has any volcanoes.
