The movie opens with a faulty nanotechnology experiment that results in a massive, deadly explosion. The company's CEO manages to sidestep blame by framing a meddling young reporter (Katherine), who now holds the only surviving evidence needed to expose the truth. All the while, the dangerous nanoparticles - having escaped from the explosion into the stratosphere - threaten to destroy nearby cities with wildly destructive weather patterns. Among the chaos of the storms, and on the run from the authorities, Katherine must - with the help of a young scientist - get the evidence to the government to enlist their help before it's too late...and the deadly disaster turns worldwide.

Poor acting, mediocre CGI and technical ignorance abound in this time
filler. Some of the plot points don't hold up to even the barest
scrutiny. They draft a bimbo reporter to serve as bombardier when they
have an entire base of Air Force personnel to pick from? They push for
an EMP bomb over a nuclear blast (the biggest EMP bomb there is, BTW)
because radiation is too non-directional like shotgun pellets? Dental
braces attract lightning? Come on. And why are molecular disassemblers
causing storms and hail anyway? Even the bad acting and video game
quality CGI could be tolerated with a little technical competence. The
underlying concept is OK but the execution is pretty bad. Trying to
guess which eastern European country is substituting for Alaska (and
the winner is...... Bulgaria!) was fun. And David Keith and Stephen
Furst chew the scenery in amusing if one-note performances. Any time
you can completely and totally describe a character with two words,
like horny yokel or corporate greedhead, you're in trouble.
I've watched worse, though. And can't David Keith get any better roles
than these second rate Sci-fi channel crapfests? Every month he's in at
least one (two this month) of these celluloid WMD's. He used to be
somebody. Maybe he figured, "Hell, I'm already in Bulgaria filming
Epoch 2, I'll just knock another one off while I'm over here". Maybe
the beer's cheap. Who knows.
