The spectacle of nature wreaking havoc is always eye-catching, but most movies fail to compensate for the epic scale, resorting to a generic story with too many thinly drawn characters. San Andreas definitely falls into this category. The earthquakes and aftershocks are stunning to look at, but the humans suffer with generic interpersonal conflict and drab dialogue that at times approaches self-parody.

Ray (Dwayne Johnson) is an LA Fire Department chopper pilot who struggles deeply with his daughter’s tragic rafting death. Unable to come to grips, Ray’s marriage to Emma (Carla Gugino)...
