Critic Reviews of "Volcano"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Never generates a head of true excitement, partly because the characters remain constructs designed to perform defined functions, and partly due to the time-worn hokiness of the whole disaster-film format.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Jones and Heche work hard to dig up an emotional rapport from next to nothing, while the slow but inexorable progress of the lava makes for more suspense than the usual slam bang firework display.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
The coast may be toast, but it's the lava, covering everything like a malevolent tide of melted butter, that makes this a disaster picture that's tastier than usual.USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
Hundreds of screen technicians obviously slaved on the effects -- and for what? A dopey subplot about a bogus arrest. Soap opera involving Jones' injured daughter.New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Like the substantially better Twister, this film insists on a thunderous, exhausting pace that inevitably becomes deflating.Salon.comJanuary 01, 2000
A flatulent blast of superheated air from the seething bowels of Hollywood...We Live EntertainmentMay 23, 2017
Volcano was really ahead of its time and time still hasn't caught up. In Volcano they thought of ways to stop the lava. They weren't going to give up L.A. You don't cast Tommy Lee Jones as the chief of emergency services and ask him to run.Reel Film ReviewsMarch 24, 2017
The fairly anticlimactic final stretch ensures that Volcano concludes on a less-than-engrossing note...Boston PhoenixSeptember 05, 2009
Pre-millennium tension is still the best explanation for the recent tidal wave of disaster movies--which hasn't made it any less boring.sbs.isFebruary 02, 2008
not mean to be taken seriouslyTheMovieReport.comOctober 03, 2005
[The characters] aren't people; they're mere objects to stick in front of the flowing lava.Reeling ReviewsApril 09, 2005
The star is, of course, the volcano effects. Seeing the coast become toast may be the biggest draw for audiences to this routine F/X extravaganza.
