Storyline

In 1985, the NSA's Dr. Parish's team trains paranormally gifted children in a new, secret Honduras base, where sergeant 'Uncle' Walter Golden is the closest thing to a parental figure for the eldest, most advanced boy, Malcolm, and his favorite Tracy. During director Bill Armitage's inspection visit, it is devastated by Soviet commandos. About fifteen years later, adult Tracy Wellman is a reckless private investigator and presents her boyfriend and protector, FBI agent Daniel 'Dan' Oliver, to her step-dad Angus, who never told the details of her traumatic amnesia at age 9, which still causes disturbed flashbacks. The FBI brings Tracy to -now- senator and presidential campaign nominee William 'wild Bill', who hires her discretely to retrieve his rebellious, since ten days missing daughter Rayanna 'Ray' before the press turns the story into an electoral nightmare. Rayanna is in the Congregation of Friends, charismatic, also psychic preacher David Mendez's New Age cult, and writes to dad... Written by KGF Vissers

B Movie stars come out to play in mindless mindstorm
23 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Just recently released on DVD and video, Mindstorm gathers as many B-listed stars as possible in a muddled attempt at mindreading, cult fascination and genuine thriller. The cast has all been seen before: Antonio Sabato Jr, Michael Ironside (looking as if he thought he was in Scanners VI), Eric Roberts, Clarence Williams III and Michael Moriarty (who talks as if he as marbles in his mouth). We've seen all of these actors before, just not in a starring role, and no wonder. Although each actor does their best with the screen time they are given, none can rise above the stale plot which leads us to an expected conclusion. I do give credit for the lack of special effects. This movie could have used F/X in an attempt to try and lure a younger audience, but instead it tried to rely on the characters and the story. Valiant effort, but misguided.
