Storyline

A series of freak weather occurrences around Washington D.C. reunites two estranged brothers who are the sons of a once prestigious climate scientist. One of them suspects their father is behind it and upon further investigation, they discover that all of their father's enemies are dead - victims of freak weather accidents. Soon their suspicions are confirmed as their father hijacks radio and TV transmissions to relay the message that unless a certain Senator whom canceled his Defense Department contracts is handed over, the city of Washington D.C will suffer the consequences. As the brothers race to form a plan that can defeat their father, he lets loose a variety of diabolical weather weapons on the Smithsonian, Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, and National Mall!

SyFy junk
8 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

WEATHER WARS is another piece of junk that comes to us courtesy of the SyFy Channel. The title of this one is a misnomer, as for a disaster flick there's remarkably little disaster. There are a couple of cool special effects sequences in which a glowing ball of energy wreaks havoc, but - and I guess it was because of budgetary constraints - the template for WEATHER WARS is more of a police thriller.

The storyline sees a shameless Stacy Keach playing a mega-villain, a former government employee who's lost his career and who decides to take revenge on those responsible. The only people with the power to stop him are his own sons, who must team up to track him down while they themselves are being pursued by the authorities.

It's all very silly and lacklustre, with an almost entire lack of the kind of suspense that this thriller demands. The script is terrible and the calibre of the cast is particularly poor; Jason London's wooden hero is the best on offer here but others, like token pretty female Erin Cahill, are completely awful. Watching the hammy Keach chewing the scenery isn't much better. No, WEATHER WARS is a film which fails to live up to that promising title, and one which is even worse than the average Asylum disaster flick.
