Storyline

Helios World Inc. aims to solve the world's energy crisis by gathering and transmitting energy from solar flares. Despite warnings of a design flaw from the developing scientist, company head Jonathan Kane pushes the project forward and unknowingly unleashes a free-ranging and self-perpetuating magnetic vortex. Only Michael Edwards, a leading scientist on the company team, thinks something might be amiss when a sizable portion of their harvested energy simply disappears. The general area thereafter discovers itself endangered by a roving and unprecedented problem growing rapidly in strength - unique, unpredictable and potentially unstoppable. As if this isn't bad enough, the Paris branch of Helios World is set to run the same flawed program and thereby birth a second voracious monster in Europe. Written by statmanjeff

If you love Paris, you'll hate this movie
21 August 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A commercial experiment to find a new energy source, producing powerful magnetic waves, or vortices goes wrong. One of those pesky vortices gets loose and wreaks havoc. The predictable clichés - CEO more interested in the success of his company than a few thousand lives, scientist hero who solves the problem against fearful odds, cute son who is bad at school but,- guess what? - brilliant at hacking computers, a skill which comes in handy. And the whole cast ecstatic when Philadelphia is saved. The fact that Paris has been trashed seems to bother no one. The Eiffel Tower, the Mona Lisa, hundreds of years of Western art, the Louvre, not to mention, presumably, thousands of French men and women? But hell, who cares about the French? Serves them right, I suppose, for not backing the war in Iraq. The monumental crassness and lack of any cultural values in this is staggering. Awful. In fairness I should add that the acting is generally good, particularly the lead male role played by Lou Diamond Phillips and his son, played by Stephen MacDonald.
