just slightly above awful
29 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

i wish i could say this is a good movie.but i would be lying.it isn't that it's awful,though it comes dangerously close at times.most of the acting is pretty bad,even for made for TV standards.much of the acting is either overacting ,depending on the person.Joan Van Rark sinks to a new low in her role as the dip sh$t mayor of the small town in the path of a tornado.the dialogue she is given is laughable and her delivery is sad,to be polite.the really isn't much tension developed,considering the subject matter.there are some shots of cgi which are painfully obvious and at one point it looks like stock footage was used for on of the tornadoes.also,none of the characters are very developed,and from what we are shown,most are idiotic and unlikable.and finally,let me say that that if the majority of the human race was as dumb as these twits,we would not be around today.this film rates a 2/10 only because it's not as bad as Evil dead 2,Slither,or Lawnmower Man 2.
