Synopsis:
With the last of Earth's natural resources dwindling and the human race under threat, Dr. Eve Carter (Alexandra Paul) makes a huge breakthrough in her Promethean Kinetics research by creating Helios: a revolutionary energy source so powerful it rivals the sun. So strong that governments struggle to control it; the highly-explosive Helios product begins to seep deep into the Earth's core, inducing giant blasts of fire and violent earthquakes which send shudders around the globe.

Firequake - a genre all to itself (and not for the right reasons) - Firequake review by MF

Spoiler Alert
04/02/2017

This film is lacking in every respect. Think Uwe Boll, but without the humour, without the self-mockery, and without the desire to entertain.

The acting is so bad that it is difficult to believe that the actors are professionals. The special effects certainly are special, but not for the intended reasons. Most deserving of censure, however, are the scriptwriters, who have managed to produce a new genre of ‘fi’ (that being science-free sci-fi). For example, the super-brainy-yet-aloof scientist mom ? no clichés there! ? ‘saves’ her diabetic daughter by giving insulin to treat her low blood sugar level. If the screen writers can’t even be bothered to check (basic) science-fact like what insulin does, it is hardly surprising that their science-fiction is, on every level, beyond belief.

Don’t waste your time with this film. The ‘so-bad-that-it-is-good-with-a-beer-on-a-Saturday-night’ effect does not apply.
