6 Netflix Movies About Disasters

Believe it or not, some disasters can be fun and entertaining — as long as they happen on the big screen (or your TV screen) and not in real life!

Here at Unlimited Restoration, we know a thing or two about the real kind of disasters. We specialize in helping businesses prepare for catastrophic events such as floods, fires and severe storms. We also provide timely emergency restoration and disaster recovery services whenever and wherever our customers need them.

In our spare time, we’re also big movie fans — we’d love to share our picks for some of the best disaster movies currently streaming on Netflix:

  • World War Z: In this 2013 thriller, ex-United Nations investigator Gerry Lane (portrayed by Brad Pitt) and his family manage to survive a lethal pandemic that turns most of the human population into man-eating zombies. Lane makes it his mission to locate the source of the infection and keep it from spreading.
  • San Andreas: Dwayne Johnson plays helicopter rescue pilot Raymond Gaines, who must deal with the aftermath of the biggest earthquake in history that occurs in San Andreas, CA. While the plot isn’t much more than a generic survival and rescue story, the action is riveting and the special effects are astounding.
  • The Day After Tomorrow: This captivating doomsday flick features Dennis Quaid as NOAA paleoclimatologist Jack Hall. Catastrophic climatic changes trigger the sudden onset of a new Ice Age. Hall must make a harrowing trek to New York City amid a global superstorm to attempt to rescue his son, portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal.
  • Armageddon: An all-star cast consisting of Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler and others must face a gigantic asteroid that’s on course to strike Earth in approximately 18 days. It’s up to an unlikely team of misfits to join forces and try to save the world and its inhabitants — before it’s too late.
  • I Am Legend: Another of our favorite movies to watch is this 2007 flick starring Will Smith as U.S. Army scientist Robert Neville. Set in post-apocalyptic New York City, Neville and his dog, Samantha, attempt to survive in the wake of a viral outbreak that has turned most of the human race into zombies.
  • Pandora: This 2016 South Korean flick centers around an earthquake that causes the nuclear power plant in a small town to explode, threatening the entire country. Pyung-Sub, a worker at the plant portrayed by Jung Jin-Young, attempts to warn the government of the impending disaster, to no avail. It falls upon Pyung-Sub and his coworkers to risk their lives and attempt to contain the destruction.
