Atomic Twister

Atomic Twister

Bill Corcoran (2002)



Our Score
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.


A scientist struggles to convince an unbelieving populace that the local nuclear power plant is in danger of blowing sky-high when a tornado hits the region. She faces a race against time to persuade the townsfolk to evacuate - and make sure her son is safe. Action adventure, starring Sharon Lawrence, Corbin Bernsen and Mark-Paul Gosselaar.
