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!

For real?
11 December 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Given the title of the movie, and the list of cast, you know what kind of movie you are in for already from the start. The title itself was an indicator of this going to be bad.

The story was really thin and it was so far out there that it was just so very hard to buy into it. I mean, a scientist taking revenge by using storms and lightning because his project funding was taken away. Come on, it was just not plausible.

One thing that the movie had working for it, was the semi-adequate effects. The special effects weren't all that shabby, nor were they top notch state of the art. They did, however, serve their purpose well enough and it showed what needed to be shown.

The cast in the movie were not on the heavy-weight scale of acting, but there were some decent enough performances here. Just don't expect any award-winning performances.

I had a hard time getting into this movie, and "Weather Wars" is just another drop in the ocean of low-budget disaster movies. There are so many similar movies out there, equally stupid and thin-storied, and it didn't extinguish itself in any particular way. There are far better disaster-themed movies out there. "Weather Wars" might be worth a watch if you are a fan of anyone on the cast list, but otherwise it is a stale lukewarm experience.

Having seen the movie, I can honestly say that it is not a movie that will make it to my screen a second time.
