San Andreas without the special effects looks even more ridiculous

You know what happens in a real earthquake? A pause. And then slight confusion. And then frantically trying to remember what elementary school taught you on where you should go. And then panic because you don’t remember. You know what happens when you film an earthquake disaster movie such as San Andreas? Comedy.

We took a look at some B-roll footage of San Andreas (there was some really cool practical effects used!) and compared how the movie looked before special effects were added and how the footage looked after it was completed. It’s pretty funny!


Before, people fall just from standing, people wait a few seconds to get flown off by wires and it’s all unbelievably silly. After special effects? Everything is so epic!

The movie tremor was so powerful, it was felt 2+ centuries later on the USS Enterprise.
