Storyline

Suddenly the US east coast is hit by a type of natural disaster formerly reserved, except after a major earthquake, for the Pacific and Indian ocean rims: tidal waves of the destructive tsunami type. Scientist and fiction author John McAdams attends a national emergency conference which concludes the phenomenon must be man-made, quite possibly abusing the findings of John's secret former Sea Lion project, but who wants to and has the means? Indeed John soon finds himself set-up for a murder and chased. Major destructions mean major contracts for construction and coastal defenses, so building tycoons like Victor Bannister certainly have a considerable interest... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Throughout the film, especially in the 2nd half, as the police search for the main character, John McAdams, played by Angus Macfadyen, they repeatedly show photocopies of a picture of McAdams. The picture is the same photo of Macfadyen that appears on his IMDb profile. See more »

Goofs

When Stanley Schiff, the scientist who programmed the explosives to cause the tidal waves, is programming the computers to launch waves to destroy Boston, he stares at a radar screen with Boston Harbor, however the image shown does not include Cape Cod or any land forms beyond the ship channel at Barnstable.

Entertaining and a Little Predictable
27 November 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Killer Wave" was shown in Two-2hr time slots, so I recorded these so I could watch them together. I find that most TV movies of this length lose any rhythm when watched on multiple nights and, of course, broken by commercials. With that condition, I enjoyed it. I found the story interesting and the production good. It would be a movie that most family members could watch, although younger viewers are often wanting the special effects and impact of 'big-budget' movies.

Parts of the movies are predictable, but I found those occasions something to smile at since I recognized the idea before they happened. I was disappointed that the few fight scenes came off poorly -- this plot doesn't need a lot of them, and the didn't overdue them -- just not the quality we expect these days.

Overall, good for a TV movie. Worth watching, but I probably would not watch it a second time.
