A mere 6.8 earthquake on the island of Hawaii unleashes a 20-foot tsunami that wreaks major damage throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Can a biology professor and a personal trainer find the cause? They are both former Navy Seals and the answer lies 6000 feet under the sea along an ever-widening crevasse. With razor sharp wit and the military skills of their Navy Seal training, Chuck Palmer and Dr. Scott Richardson make a discovery no one could have fathomed: another tsunami 100 times bigger is about to crush the Pacific Rim. The Wave is a gripping, seamless story of love, friendship, nonstop macho humor, and a looming natural disaster. The nail-biting succession of events include a malfunctioning Cessna, the governor's looming henchmen, underwater earthquakes, near death in a submersible, an exploding sport-fisher, and a woman's desperate motorcycle ride to outrun a wall of water.

It’s refreshing to see a film that has such weighted ideas being employed within it which are put across so honestly and with such conviction.
