Storyline

NASA scientist Tom Reynolds thought everything would be fine when he moved to Seattle to be with his fiancé, Navy Lieutenant Emma Peterson. But when his gearhead son Wyatt can't stop fighting with her green-minded daughter Chloe, they realize that this new family may not make it. And things aren't just stormy on the home front; when an unidentified object is shot down by the military and crashes into Puget Sound, it sets off a series of strange weather phenomena: earthquakes, tornados, lightning storms... and they're spreading. Now, this new family must find a way to work together to save the city, and each other, before it's too late. Written by Marvista Entertainment

A wince-inducing Sci-Fi Channel effort
26 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is your typical Sci-Fi Channel disaster flick except it's even worse than the average for this unfortunate sub-genre. It offers a family-focused narrative which sees a scientist and his extended relations getting to grips with some kind of supernatural storm which envelops Seattle after the army shoots down a UFO. Unfortunately this outer space menace has the power to cause tornadoes and earthquakes and the like so the humans have their work cut out to combat it.

Sadly it's a complete mess of a film, full of insipid dialogue, lame characters you instantly hate, and special effects that are bad even by Sci-Fi Channel standards. The characters are dull beyond belief even with various familiar actors playing the roles. Headlining this thing is LA BAMBA's Esai Morales, but he's the most famous the film can offer.

The ludicrous aspect of having high school students figuring out ways to combat the threat when experienced scientists and top academics are unable to do so is particularly noticeable here, and a handful of not-bad disaster sequences fail to lift this one from the mess in which it's mired.
