Our Score
Kelly McGillis is a pale shadow of her Witness self in this perfunctory action adventure, playing the widow of a meteorologist whose plane was struck by lightning during a tornado. Instead of being intimidated by the elements, she sets out to explain them in the company of Colorado storm chaser Wolf Larsen. The sequence in which their passion is inflamed by a bolt from an angry sky sums up the cheesiness of the plot and the elementary proficiency of the special effects. But at least director Mark Sobel makes an attempt to discuss the damage that science and industry are doing to the environment.

Summary

A widow takes on the forces of nature in her determination to complete a tornado research programme begun by her late husband. Her self-appointed mission puts her in extreme peril - but the situation grows even more dangerous when she makes a shocking discovery about a spate of freak storms in Colorado. Thriller, starring Kelly McGillis, Wolf Larson and Liz Torres.
