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

It's Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature
21 August 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

"Meteorologist Ron Young (Luke Perry) has been recruited to assist renegade Air Force General Roberts (Martin Sheen) in a top-secret government operation to manipulate the weather. On board a specially rigged plane, they launch their device into the eye of a massive weather front off California, which quickly accelerates to hurricane winds over 400 mph. But when an onboard struggle for control ensues, the race is on to secure the storm device and stop the unbridled rampage about to wreak havoc in L.A. This time, the City of Angels doesn't have a prayer!" according to the DVD description.

Apparently re-titled "Storm Tracker" to distinguish it from other storms.

This was obviously made for the home video and/or cable TV market. Still struggling to break-out of "Beverly Hills 90210", Mr. Perry pulled in some viewers, with Mr. Sheen adding his well-respected name to the cast. Both actors dip generously into their bags of acting tricks, and give the script all they can for the money. Sheen's daughter Renee Estevez (as Andrea McIntyre) appears as Perry's TV reporter love interest. The structure and "controlling the weather" story recycled for "Storm" is quite good, and it could have been a big-budget cinema hit. Perry and the plot re-surfaced in 2009.

***** Storm (8/11/99) Harris Done ~ Luke Perry, Martin Sheen, Robert Knott, Renee Estevez
