Tedious thriller filmed in Bulgaria is lacking in every department...
23 November 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

LIGHTNING STRIKES is one Sci-Fi channel movie to avoid.

KEVIN SORBO stars as the sheriff of a small town--supposedly in the mid-west of America--whose mayor is upset that the storm chasers are predicting a "big one" will wipe out the town. These "chasers" are on a mobile unit full of electronic equipment as they make their diagnosis of when and where the storm will strike.

It's foolish nonsense, not helped by the bad script, the fake looking settings filmed mostly in a studio set in Bulgaria, and the false special effects that reduce the whole chill factor to zero. Must have been a tough location. You can see how frosty the air was when the actors open their mouths to speak--even in indoor scenes!

Hard to see why anyone bothered to produce this witless wonder. Whatever real menace they could have used by making the storms more realistic (such as the moment where we can see a figure in the lightning) is practically non-existent.
