Review by Wayne Malin
Various people are traveling the subway. Then an earthquake hits totally uprooting the subway car. Some of the passengers survive and, with hard-boiled James Brolin leading the way, they try to find a way out.
Caught this on TV when I was 10 and never forgot it. The earthquake scene was great and the acting was pretty good (for TV). Also they all have to face numerous obstacles to get out so I was never really bored. Haven’t seen it since its premiere and I don’t think I want to. Chances are what I liked when I was 10 will not hold up now when I’m in my 40s! Still it’s worth catching if it ever pops up again. I give it a 6.
