About the Movie

Pierce Brosnan and Linda Hamilton star in Dante’s Peak, an action-packed story about the incomparable power of nature and mankind’s unending will to survive. When unusual seismic activity is detected in the charming little Pacific Northwest town of Dante’s Peak, volcanologist Harry Dalton (Brosnan) is called in to investigate. Certain that a long-dormant volcano is set to erupt and the townspeople are in danger, he convinces Mayor Rachel Wando (Hamilton) to take action. Now the race is on to evacuate the town before it’s too late in this gripping adventure that’s filled with adrenaline-fueled action and spectacular special effects.

Volcanic explosions, hot lava in motion ;-)

Excellent movie! If you enjoy movies like Independence Day, Armageddon, Deep Impact, Apollo 13, basically anything that has to do with humans surviving mother natures wrath, then this is definately for you! It puts you on the edge of your seat & it puts you in the shoes of the characters. Makes you wonder what would you do, how would you react to a situation like this? Suspense one after another! Cop it. It's a HOT movie. :-)


I've heard this movie was a ripoff of the movie Volcano, but it's not. It's one of the best volcano movies I've ever seen! The plot is strong, there is plenty of action, the plot immediately drags you in... let me just say it's great. I only rented this movie to see if I like it, but I'm probably going to buy it pretty soon. One note, however: the movie Volcano, which was released around the same time as this, has slightly better special effects. However, I'm not complaining.


I have seen this movie several times, and it makes my top three.
1. Dante's Peak
2. Speed
3. Volcano
