I thought I was watching a soap, 16 January 2008
Author: newton_kerry from United Kingdom

The acting was so poor, the effects awful, the sets fake and I thought I was watching a TV soap, it was so bad.

Some of the shots where obviously news item shots which showed how bad it might have been, but apart from that it was dreadful, what a shame a good point could have been made about how dreadful hurricanes can be both in the USA. The film makers could have pushed home the point to people the dangers and the incredible losses people suffer, better still to show how long it takes to get back to some kind of normality, and how slowly Insurance companies and governments move to help the man on the street.

Ah well maybe next time
