Good for TV
12 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

A good TV movie. It's slow pace, BORING characters, shoddy plot and sub par effects all come standard with the TV-movie genre and this is no exception. The only character I found interesting was bruce campbell's father, he kept the film alive for me. The pace is terribly slow and at times annoying, the scenes with supposed character development are shocking (who wants to hear about boring peoples lives?). The tornado sequences are bland, the first two are false alarms and so nothing is seen then the last two are shown, only barely but and with C grade effects.

Nothing special here, as I said before, it's good for TV but not for anything else.

4/10
