In Chile, a group of travelers who are in an underground nightclub when a massive earthquake hits quickly learn that reaching the surface is just the beginning of their nightmare.
You lost me at underground nightclub, guys. This film is a colossal waste of time, so I won’t punish you by rambling on and wasting more of your day. Aftershock suffers from so many things, but the protagonists, a bunch of uber rich kids partying with Dad’s money, these characters suck on every level. The film does nothing to endear them to the viewer, they’re two-dimensional to the core. The natural disaster setting bored me to death and I started questioning my choice to watch it. I’m still not sure why I did. Oh, yeah. I watched this initially because Amazon is charging to stream it, while Netflix does not. Great rational is it not?
I can’t waste any more of your time in good consciousness; just do yourself a favor and skip this one. Free on Netflix isn’t always a good thing.
