Although it might seem odd to call a disaster film “low-key,” the label applies in this case.

Never takes itself too seriously, delivers all the goods one expects from this sort of action-thriller, and doesn’t overstay its welcome.

A mashup of a variety of common movie material, it does a lot of things adequately but lacks the time and scope to do any of them truly well.
