San Andreas (12)
Action superstar Dwayne Johnson takes on his biggest challenge yet: an earthquake laying waste to California.
After two, headache-inducing, destructive hours, you’re left wondering how it took three men to write such a paltry story.
As with so many disaster blockbusters, it’s the special effects that register highest on the cinematic Richter scale – spectacular helicopter crashes, skyscrapers being swallowed and a 500ft tsunami are just some of the visual treats on show.
Johnson does his best to lend the cheese-fest some credibility but the supporting cast are saddled with wafer-thin characters and the overall depth on show is as slight as Kyle Minogue’s pointless cameo.
