Here are my initial thoughts on “San Andreas” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Carla Gugino and Alexandra Daddario. Plenty of eye candy for all audiences with these characters. I even found myself having bicep envy, staring at Dwayne Johnson’s UFB physique. But back to the flick…disaster film’s number one goal is to impart suspense and danger upon the viewers. This one did. And more. The tremors and Richter Scale readings create massive chaos as expected, and those going to see “San Andreas” for that will not leave disappointed in the carnage. However, the movie took me immediately back to 9/11 with the imploding buildings, debris, dust clouds, people running for their lives in the city. The heroes who stepped forward to help others back in 2001. First responders going in the opposite direction of those fleeing harm. And, yes, people falling from skyscrapers. All of it will hit some, like me, differently. Another unfortunate message I received involved teen texting & driving. But more on that in my full movie review coming up.
