PG Certificate


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, clichéd 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.
