A series of mysterious lightning storms wreaking havoc worldwide as they spiral through the atmosphere toward Greenland. Once they collide, they will create one massive storm that will result in cataclysmic destruction. But the Rescue Heroes use their new Mission Select equipment to contain the disasters all over the world caused by these strange storms. But Billy Blazes is poisoned on a mission and getting weaker by the moment, and Rocky Canyon is grounded for insubordination. So the team is short-handed!

It's decent for kids, though fans will not like the animation
19 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Recently, I re-watched this movie on Youtube. Let me just start out with this: The animation quality is AWFUL. The compression can often result in "layered" shades of color. The cel- shading is terrible, and the animation looks very cheap, even for Direct-to-DVD.

Now I will say this: Everything else is decent: The plot is decent, the music is actually pretty good even after 13 years, and those who saw this movie years before will be struck with nostalgia beyond compare.


The plot is this: (after 11 minutes of filler) During a 2-man volcano rescue in Peru, Richmond "Rocky" Canyon disobeys orders (He didn't the Piton Gloves because they were "slowing him down") given by the leader, Billy Blazes, nearly leading to their deaths. While trying to save himself, Blazes grabs a poisonous thorned plant which tears through his right glove. One of their satellites notices some abnormal storms, keeping an eye on them throughout the story.

Back at HQ, Rocky is put on cleanup duty for disobeying orders. However, during a discussion with some fellow Rescue Heroes, Blazes starts suffering the effects of the poison (Disorientation and blurriness of vision). In the Alps, Rocky helps rescue some snowboarders, but his rebellious attitude causes him to accidentally start an avalanche (which is stopped by a man-made avalanche caused by a fellow Rescue Hero).

Back at HQ again, Rocky is "Grounded", which leaves him unable to participate in future missions for the time being. Meanwhile, many Rescue Heroes are busy due to fires, floods, and other disasters caused by the aforementioned storms. After an accident in the computer room, they discover that the storms were caused by the volcano. Doing some experiments on Rocky's gloves, they discover a new element which is highly conductive and magnetized. This element is present in the volcano and was launched up along with the dust during the eruption.

Simulation models with the computers reveal that they are heading to the north pole, and if they do that, then the whole world will be covered by clouds. Thanks to an international effort, they manage to create the world's largest lightning rod in the arctics, despite some accidents. The lightning rod drains the current of the storm, and the day is saved.
