||A few minutes into "Tidal Wave-No Escape" a reporter states "What you'll see is amateur video tape..." That pretty much sums up this whole movie. Filled with bad acting, scenes ripped from National Geographic-type videos, and "special" effects that look like they were done using a Walmart-special software program. The only highlight in this soggy mess is a cool Poseidon Adventure reference, where there is a huge tidal wave crashing into the Queen Mary in Long Beach, Ca. The plot is basic: A madman finds a way to make tidal waves occur using missles hitting undersea shelfs. Will they stop him in time? Will Corben Bernsens ex-boss, who slept with his now-dead wife, put his petty jealousy aside and believe him? Will the Ex-Mrs Bruce Springsteen, Julianne Phillips ever have a bad hair day?..Who cares!? Dont pay money to see this. Thanks to Brian Boskind for lending this to me, as I would be pissed if I actually laid out cash to watch it...
