I thought this was a good movie, starring Pierce Brosnan and Linda Hamilton. Special effects are great, and audio and video quality are very good as well. It all helps to make the movie that much more enjoyable.
Dante's Peak deals with an inactive volcano that suddenly becomes active again. It is really riveting to see what happens to the town and the people when havoc strikes, and how the town deals with it. Pierce Brosnan is an expert on volcanoes, and he knows something is going to happen because there are signs which no one seems to be heeding. Linda Hamilton is Mayor of this small town in the state of Washington, and it is up to her to evacuate if she thinks the danger is real enough.
The special effects are great in this movie, which is the main reason I think it's pretty good. There are some special features, though not as many as some other DVDs I own have. They include audio commentaries and interviews with behind-the-scenes footage, as well as some other special features.
Dante's Peak is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and rated PG-13. If you like a lot of action and special effects, you will like Dante's Peak.
