70s disaster film
15 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hurricane is about a large hurricane in the gulf of Mexico and several groups of people that get stuck in it. This movie is all about people and not about hurricanes so don't look for a lot of special effects. There were many TV actors from the 60s and 70s in this film and it was nice to see them in early roles. Some were partial casts from very well known TV shoes like Dallas and The Waltons. I'm not really sure why this film is part of the Classic Disaster Movies DVD because it didn't really say much about the disaster. I didn't view this as a disaster film, much less a classic disaster film. Pretty good technically for the era it was made, but again, it was more about people than disasters.
