User Reviews

Interesting. That is all I can say.
25 May 2018 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

I found the BluRay of this movie at my public library, it certainly has a catchy title.

It is animation with some top-shelf voice actors, not that it really makes any difference. It is a straightforward story, several sophomore students are writers for the school paper. One of them discovers some plans for the newly build school building situated on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The evaluation says the cliff and nearby fault line will not safely support the weight of the building, four stories, one for each grade.

A minor earthquake does in fact send the building into the ocean with all the students inside, it floats but is sinking rapidly. The students, faculty, and staff have to try to survive.

It is a comedy of sorts, but with gruesome scenes, like students decapitated, people floating dead underwater. Is it worth a watch? Depends on what one is looking for. The animation style is very interesting and that is probably the best reason to take the time to watch the whole thing. Frankly I got a bit bored as it went on and there is no hard-hitting resolution. A high quality amateur work.
