PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
The film was famously one of the 'guilty pleasures' of Roger Ebert. In his review he stated: "I have such an unreasonable affection for this movie, indeed, that it is only by slapping myself alongside the head and drinking black coffee that I can restrain myself from recommending it. It is only a notch down from Congo (1995), Anaconda (1997), Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) and other films which those with too little taste think they have too much taste to enjoy."
The General had 4 stars in the beginning of the movie and three the remainder of the movie.
At the beginning when the Paramount pictures logo is shown there is a transition between the Paramount pictures logo and the film - the camera zooms in on the mountain then starts to move down through the mountain to the core of the earth.
