Amerikaanse rampenfilm uit 1997 van regisseur Mick Jackson. Met Tommy Lee Jones (Men in black, The Fugitive), Anne Heche, Gaby Hoffman e.a. Onder het centrum van Los Angeles heeft zich een vulkaan gevormd die op het punt van uitbarsten staat. Een officier van de reddingsbrigade en een seismologe proberen die brullende vulkaan te bestrijden om Los Angeles voor totale vernietiging te behoeden. Boxoffice Magazine geeft drie sterren: 'The action, the effects and tough-as-nails Tommy Lee provide a worthwhile thrill ride - even if the last drop wasn't as big as you thought it would be.' De San Franciso Chronicle is minder enthousiast over de technische kwaliteit van de vulkaanuitbarsting die volgens hen niet realistische genoeg is.
