And how apt it is that a mega-tornado wipes away the famous Hollywood sign (and half of Los Angeles) in that very film. The problem with this and other Hollywood-made disasters such as "Deep Impact" or "Independence Day" is that they try to overdo the action, taking you across the globe for an unnecessary play by play of worldwide terror.
