What the Heck?
22 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A high school science project inadvertently causes a storm that destroys New York, Boston, Washington and the small town of Heartfield. Can they stop it?

Another reviewer called this film "total nonsense" and I want to echo that sentiment. Yes, such things as X bosons exist. Well, at least hypothetically. But they have nothing to do with Jupiter and probably could not be discovered or harnessed by high school students. And, anyway, how does Jupiter's red spot end up on earth?

I did like that from the very beginning, many major American cities are destroyed. Not because I want to see American cities destroyed, but because it puts the plot in a strange position -- it does not allow the protagonists to save the world "in the nick of time". That time has already passed... so even if they succeed, what happens then?

For some reason it took SyFy two years to go from television to DVD on this one... and then the name was changed (it is now "Super Storm" and not "Mega Cyclone"). Although it has a few familiar faces (such as Mitch Pileggi) and some rising stars (Jon Mack), it really is not one that many people will be seeking out...
