Finally saw this lastnight! Considerably better (more realistic) than that Tommy Lee Jones' "Volcano" lol

I think the two big "gaffes" were the low silica lava flows (fountains,etc), and them driving a truck over one of the lava flows!

Oh, and the acid was "Hollywood acid" of course - 1000x stronger than Hydrofluoric :-)

But overall, impressed by the portrayal of things like the Plinian Eruption (no name given, but complete with lightning), lahars (again no name given), and Pyroclastic Flows (Brosnan called them Pyroclastic Clouds).

And even the gadget (E.L.F. beacon) is feasible, although I've never heard of one being built (they might use them in mining?).
Convenient he had it handy, though! :-)
