On the DVD with Directors Commentary, Brad Peyton states that each one-tenth increase in the Richter scale, ie: from 9.5 to 9.6, is an increase in the severity of the earthquake by 100 times. Actually, the increase in severity, though still severe, is far less; each whole number increase; ie: from 8.0 to 9.0, is an increase in severity of 10 times. See more »

The end credits scroll with a bend at the top and bottom of the screen, as though they are on a rotating seismograph drum. Seismic lines, increasing in intensity, can be seen on the left side of the frame. See more »
San Andreas is another disaster blockbuster action film by director Brad Peyton. In this film he teams up again with Dwayne Johnson, and this film delivers on what was expected. The visuals, stunts and overall disaster action lives up to the content of the trailers. These films are merely to show action and the overall aspect of disasters occurring. The plot and storyline may be weaker but it was decent enough and kept audiences entertained throughout. The characters are great, as well lead by lead action star The Rock, delivering another charismatic strong performance as lead hero. Carla Gugino and Alexandra Daddario play their part well. Although somewhat predictable in the end, San Andreas delivers on thrills, some suspense and is the blockbuster which delivers in until the end.
