The film starts with some guy setting a device in the workplace. He's stealing information from the company computer, It's over fifty minutes into this one hour and forty-two minute film before anything about an earthquake happens. Otherwise, it's a cop type of show with a guy stealing U.S. secrets and trying to sell them to the Russians. Boring, boring, boring.
Then there's a few moments of earthquake, then it's back to the cop show, although this time with them running around the ruins left after the earthquake.
Probably one of the worst disaster movies ever made.
