Director Bill Corcoran crosses Twister with The China Syndrome in this hokey TV-movie disaster thriller. The effects are respectable enough, but the script is packed with stock characters, clich├ęd situations and unintentionally hilarious dialogue mouthed by, among others, NYPD Blue stars Sharon Lawrence and Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Lawrence gives it her best shot as the nuclear power-plant supervisor whose workplace is in the way of a tornado and Gosselaar also tries hard as the deputy sheriff who helps her find her missing son. Former Olympic 100m champion Carl Lewis also turns up as a security man.

Plot Summary

Disaster thriller starring Corbin Bernsen. The future of a Tennessee town hangs in the balance when a tornado heads straight for a nearby nuclear power plant.
