An attention-grabbing title is the most dramatic aspect of this substandard small-screen disaster movie. After an over-the-top opening sequence, events are neither tense nor exciting as disgraced architect Joe Lando races to convince small-town residents that a dam he designed is about to rupture. Ultra-localised action proves the biggest catastrophe, with a surfeit of boring shots of the internal dam walls bursting that highlight the fake-looking sets and horribly unconvincing visual effects. Writer/director Doug Campbell tries to engage viewer empathy by throwing in a huge dollop of sentimentality, but it feels forced and empty. Still, the hammy cast seems to be having fun - especially Bruce Boxleitner as the corporate villain behind the whole water-spewing mess.

Plot Summary

Disaster movie starring Bruce Boxleitner and Joe Lando. When a town's dam begins to show signs of wear, the architect who originally worked on it insists it should be drained and inspected before it bursts. But will anyone heed his warnings?
