Review

Our Score
Laughable effects and the lamest of plots make this unrealistic Twister wannabe a wretched affair. Combining underdeveloped family drama with limp, weather-themed action, it stars Joe Lando as a meteorologist turned cop, who returns to the Oklahoma town where his wife was killed by a tornado to attend his estranged daughter's graduation. Storms break both physically and metaphorically, leaving Lando and tag-along journalist Nicole Eggert to try to save the day before another massive cyclone hits. It's so cheaply done that there's never any hint of peril or suspense, while the over-dramatic music merely draws attention to the film's failings.

Summary

A storm chaser quits to become a cop after his family is killed in a twister. He is forced to face up to the nightmares of his past when an old friend calls in a favour - by asking for his help in stopping a giant tornado cutting a swathe of destruction through Oklahoma. Adventure, starring Joe Lando, Nicole Eggert and Peter Graham-Gaudreau.
