I’m currently watching the movie San Andreas, and it seems like a matter of convenient marketing oriented screenplay that in the aftermath of the earthquake, two of the main characters just happened to be in the very same spot (in Los Angeles no less) they needed to be in to find the other main characters.

Americans want their cinema to have good endings for the protagonists to the point where the storyline often has form insane coincidences for that to be able to happen.

If this were a French film, it’s likely all the characters would die, and there’d be no resolution acceptable to American movie goers.
