The cluster of relief tents near the end of the film are actual disaster relief tents that are distributed by Shelterbox, a real disaster relief organization based in England. The costs of transporting the tents and green boxes from various storage locations to the set were paid for by the production company. See more »

The end credits scroll with a bend at the top and bottom of the screen, as though they are on a rotating seismograph drum. Seismic lines, increasing in intensity, can be seen on the left side of the frame. See more »
Los Angeles, San Francisco and even Hoover Dam in Nevada is getting wasted by series of huge earthquakes, which are caused by the San Andreas fault zone – thank god, we have Dwayne Johnson!
San Andreas is that kind of "blow your brains out and hold on!" -destruction porn, what I have waited for 19 years, since Independence Day. It is really f**n entertaining and I love'd every second of the ride.
Also the 3D is created well – even though stereoscopic effect is generated afterwards in digital post-production.
There are dozens of stupid and illogical takes and sequences that makes you face palm yourself, but the fact is, that San Andreas is just awesome disaster movie.
