Wrecked by horrible special effects and generic characters...
Well, truth be told then I had very little expectations to "Destruction Los Angeles". So why watch it, you might ask. Well, because it is a natural disaster movie and I have something for those movies. There is just something primordial in the forces of nature, and I do enjoy watching movies where nature runs rampart and wrecks destruction on our world.
However, "Destruction Los Angeles" turned out to be a rather weak movie in the genre, and it didn't take more than maybe 20-30 minutes before my attention started shifting from the screen to my mobile phone.
The characters in the movie were just flaccid and one-dimensional. It was somewhat of a nice surprise to see Craig Sheffer in the movie. I actually don't remember seeing him since "Night Breed".
Disaster movies are bound to have proper special effects and CGI in order to be convincing. Yup, that wasn't the case for "Destruction Los Angeles". No, the special effects and CGI in the movie were mediocre at best. At least they tried, but it just wasn't convincing. And that was a horrible blow to the movie.
If you enjoy natural disaster movies, then you might want to give "Destruction Los Angeles" a wide berth.
