Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This is a shameless TV cash-in on the blockbusting success of the Jan De Bont hit Twister. OK, this one focuses on the impact a series of dangerous tornados has on a small rural town rather than the scientists chasing them, but if Twister hadn't been released, it is very likely that this would have vanished without trace. Unsurprisingly, the effects aren't up to much, and the subplot about the attempts of a father (played by Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider) to patch up his relationship with his teenage stepson (Devon Sawa of Casper and Slackers fame) just slows everything down.
