Storyline

Militant environmentalists Kate and Joe witness, and videotape, the rapid growth of a gigantic root system that literally begins mowing through the country like an earthquake. At the same time, government agent Jack Taylor contacts plant expert Jocelyn Snow, who discovers that her ex-colleague, Frame Marcos, is the probable source of the ancient seed that started the whole ecological disaster. Under the growing threat of massive tsunamis should the enormous root system burrow under the ocean, Jack, Jocelyn, Joe and Kate confront Frame in his compound, then return to the place where it all began, with the hopes that Jocelyn can disable the embryonic root and bring the disaster to an end.

Goofs

While looking up the license plate the computer screen goes black. The user says it is off-line, and corrects the problem by plugging in what appears to be an Ethernet cable. Disconnecting from a network does not cause a screen to go to black; disconnecting a power cord does that. See more »

Another silly SyFy Channel offering. Having run out of natural disasters, aliens, and monsters elsewhere, the producers turn to the idea of a gigantic, fast-spreading killer plant that proceeds to wreak havoc across America. Yes, this is an ecological disaster movie just as nonsensical as the one portrayed in M. Night Shyamalan's THE HAPPENING, although not quite as unintentionally funny as that movie.

The story involves some good-natured scientists who are ripped off by a renegade, who ends up unleashing terror upon the world. It's a little like the Nedry situation in JURASSIC PARK, except without even that film's level of believability. What this all boils down to is a repetitive series of scenes in which giant roots spring up from below the ground and smash everything to pieces.

The usual problems are present in this SyFy production: bad acting, a weak script, dodgy CGI effects, a general lack of realism. I guess most of us will expect these things by now, but SEEDS OF DESTRUCTION is just too repetitively staged to appeal to B-movie fans. It's root attack followed by root attack, with nothing to break up the monotony.
