Superstorm is a three-part British docudrama miniseries written and directed by Julian Simpson, about a group of scientists that try to divert and weaken hurricanes using cloud seeding. Superstorm originally aired on BBC One for a period of three weeks, totaling three 59 minute episodes, from April 15th, 2007 to April 29th, 2007. Each episode was followed by a half-hour documentary on BBC Two on extreme weather monitoring and forecasting, called The Science of Superstorms. The series was also aired (after being edited for content) on the Discovery Channel in the U.S. and Canada during the summer of 2007. Superstorm is a co-production of BBC Worldwide, Discovery Channel and ProSieben, in association with M6 and NHK. Ailsa Orr and Michael Mosley, who made also Supervolcano, are the executive producers for BBC, while Jack E. Smith is the executive producer for Discovery Channel. Written by
I stumbled onto this movie by accident. What a mess!! Its only artistic value was that of a train wreck. It was difficult not to watch for a while to see how many ways they could do a bad job.
First the photography. I'm sure the filmmakers will wax poetic over using video and bad camera-work to give an impression of "reality". All they did was give an impression of lack of aptitude.
Then the acting... Except for Tom Sizemore (and even he wasn't doing such a great job) it was Afternoon at the Amateur Hour (and that's being mean to Amateur Hour!) As for the direction, it consisted at attempts at shaking the camera in lieu of direction.
Oh, and the sound was ludicrously bad, as if they had used a Mic from a video-cam (which they probably did).
I'm asking you, what's the point of doing a movie like this if you're not going to even try to do it well?
