Goofs

The Fujita Scale is not a "Wind Damage Scale." Instead, it is used to record the damage intensity done by a tornado; the wind speed is an estimate. This is evidenced further when Dr. Branson shows Sam an "F4." The F4 (which was taken in Ash Valley, KS in 1974) was classified as an F2 based on its damage, not by its size or wind speed.

31 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

i'll start with the positives.i really like the characters that Bruce Campbell and Ernie Hudson played.they were both very likable.Bruce Campbell did a very good job in his role as a storm chaser.not once did i think of him in his Evil Dead persona.Ernie Hudson was also credible in his role as a scientist who had been trying for years to perfect an early warning system he had developed.other than that,there is not a lot to recommend this movie.we see very few tornadoes in the movie.it is more of a drama than anything else.it was boring at times,to say the least.of far as these types of movies go,this one is very low key and sedate at times.there is also nothing original in it.you basically have the same bunch of characters,just with different names.it passes the time,but that's about it.4/10
