About the Movie

Volcano offers lots of action in an entertaining disaster flick. As head of the Los Angeles Office of Emergency Management, Mike (Tommy Lee Jones) abruptly suspends his vacation to respond to an earthquake. Little does he know that he'll be working closely with a seismologist (Anne Heche) to divert lava generated by a nascent volcano.
