Trivia

"Smoke'n Bob's" Hot Dog cart, seen in one of the town scenes, is a dead giveaway for the Winnipeg shooting location. Also recognizable: the Garry Theatre. See more »

Goofs

The notion of opening windows when a tornado approaches went out with the Eighties. There is no way a tornado expert like Dr. Arledge would be advising to do such a thing in 2002. See more »

It was almost a comedy
21 September 2002 | by (Indianapolis) – See all my reviews

The special effects, the acting, and the script were so bad that at times I couldn't figure out if this movie was a drama or just a bad comedy. The mayor was especially awful.

The special effects were pretty lousy, too. In one scene, the good guys are driving with the mayor following, yelling through her bullhorn that everything's alright. She then gets swept away. But a few moments later, down the same road, the tornado is seen about a mile away off in the field.

I'm sorry, but I was expecting a thriller and got a lame, unbelievable sci-fi pseudocomedy.
