Storyline

On August 23, 1992, a black-ops research program led by General Roberts perfected a device to control the weather. It was launched from a specially outfitted plane and tested for the first time. But control of the machine was lost, and within hours a deadly hurricane had formed. It became the greatest natural disaster since the San Francisco Earthquake - Hurricane Andrew. In the wake of this catastrophe, all evidence of the program was buried. Seven years later, General Roberts has revived the top-secret project. He recruits ambitious meteorologist Ron Young, who has developed software that directs weather systems. The STORM device, now equipped with this software, has been launched into a weather front 300 miles off the California coast. Moments after the device has whipped the storm into a full-blown hurricane, Roberts orders it targeted at Mexico. The storm has grown in power to a super-hurricane, with wind speeds exceeding 400 miles per hour. A struggle on board the plane ensues, ... Written by David Ridlen

Did You Know?

Goofs

General Roberts, an Air Force Brigadier General, is wearing the blue striped fours of service longevity of service ribbon without any oak leaf clusters. He likely would not be wearing a ribbon without clusters, because the service ribbon, as he wears it, signifies less than even the second award, and it is likely a general officer would have four or five clusters for longevity of service befitting a Brigadier General.

Low budget trash

I think the summary says it all. I can't believe I rented it.

I don't normally write scathing reviews of movies but I wasted six bucks and nearly two hours on it, so it has to be done.

You might expect this kind of movie from Luke Perry, but I thought that Martin Sheen might have been above doing movies like this one.

Generally, the standard of acting was terrible. Perry should stick to teeny-soaps, where acting is not a prerequisite. Whoever cast him as a meteorologist should be flogged to death with a wet cat.

Sheen is better but still unconvincing in the role of the renegade Airforce officer.

The special effects were so fake you could practically see the fishing line. The last minute double-cross in the plot could have worked except for the wooden acting which killed it.

In conclusion it's a waste of perfectly good video tape. I give it a great big ZERO out of ten.
