Storyline

On a secret military base a group of scientists have made a discovery unequaled since the invention of the A-bomb; code-named Eruptor, it's a device that supercharges Dark Matter and uses it to change the molecular structure of its target, thereby eradicating it. But when the Eruptor malfunctions and a leading scientist on the project is blasted with Dark Matter, he receives incredible abilities that allow him to control the weather, as the same device now threatens the world!

Unexpected remake
12 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

DARK STORM, a zero-budget TV movie from 2006 starring a down-on-his-luck Stephen Baldwin, has all the trappings of a dodgy disaster-cum-sci-fi movie: a scientist is accidentally exposed to dark matter and soon finds himself with the ability to control the elements.

About halfway through the running time, I somewhat incredulously realised that I was in fact watching a remake of a poverty row programmer called THE INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN, starring an equally down-on-his-luck Lon Chaney Jr., about a guy who finds himself with the power to control electricity. The two plots aren't exact, but they're similar enough to suppose that the writer must have seen the old Chaney flick.

In any case, DARK STORM is a poor excuse for a film. Half of it is a silly sci-fi outing, with random balaclava-wearing goons going around hassling pretty female scientists and extras getting killed. The other half is a disaster movie, with dark matter storms destroying buildings in Seattle and Romania, of all places. One of the storms destroys a high rise in scenes uncomfortably reminiscent of the 9/11 attacks. Needless to say, the CGI effects are horrible and the acting equally bad, particularly from a slumming-it Baldwin, who really should know better...
