" The Ups: It is one of the more fast-paced catastrophe movies ever made with the best cast of Hollywood stars getting eaten by memorable fire effects. The Downs: It became a hell-of-a-lot more believable after WTC in 2001 and some scenes give a gruesome sense of believablity now and is not nearly as "fun" as they were in 1974. Producer Irwin Allen never managed to top himself again. It is a little on the long side. "
