Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India (TOI):

San Andreas delivers on what it promises. Undeniably it is low on powerhouse performances but visually it’s a spectacle. The CG work brilliantly builds the story’s menace factor. As the epic catastrophe looms large over America’s most iconic cities, the film shifts between a family torn because of a certain tragedy and cities crumbling down due to another.

Mid-Day:

How many times have we seen ‘the disaster movie’? A hundred? Probably a thousand times. And yet, Hollywood keeps regurgitating the same thing over and over again, at least once every year. Of course they do that because most of these movies are, for some reason incredibly profitable. Because people, for some reason, want to see buildings crumbling.

Hindustan Times (HT):

In Dwayne Johnson, we believe. When The Rock tells a dazed Michelle Rodriguez in Fast and Furious 7 that he’s the cavalry, we believe him. When he decimates armies upon armies single-handed in Hercules, we believe him.

NDTV Movies:

The big earthquake in San Andreas – excuse me, the “seismic swarm event” – has its pros and cons. On one hand, it tears the state of California asunder. On the other, it brings a family together. As is the custom in movies of this kind, destruction is both universal and selective.

CNN IBN:

What do you call a professional search-and-rescue pilot who ditches his duties and flies off in his work helicopter to save his family when a series of earthquakes rips through California, endangering the lives of thousands? Selfish? Irresponsible? In San Andreas, however, we’re meant to root for the guy in question because he’s played by the irresistibly likeable Dwayne Johnson.

The Indian Express:

“Drop, cover, and hold on”. Giamatti’s “Director, California Institute of Technology” shouts this out once here, and then some, to emphasise that it may have The Rock, but this is a serious film about rocks and what happens when they move. “A seismic swarm”, he calls them, as not just one (Los Angeles) but at least two (also San Francisco) cities are laid to rubble.
