Cast overview, first billed only:
Sally (as Brittany Berry)


In a small Texas town during the holiday season, Ethan Walker, a meteorologist and part-time professor working at the local university studying tornadoes, is woken in the middle of the night for a call about a tornado that has just hit. His team is assembling at the lab and he needs to report. His wife Addison, a TV news reporter, is also summoned to work to do a piece on the tornado for the morning news. Ethan realizes the conditions are ripe for more tornadoes. Although he and his wife have been having marriage problems, he calls her and begs her to put the warning out, but the station's slick meteorologist thinks it was an isolated incident. Addison tries to get him to change his mind, but he won't -- because it's Christmas time and he does not want to be a Scrooge with some hypothetical news. When a tornado levels the Walker's house on Christmas Eve, Ethan and his wife must come together to help save others and rescue their missing children. Written by Anonymous

Excitement for the whole family!
16 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love disaster films and I thought since this one was on ION, it would be good for the whole family. And everyone loved it! Casper Van Dien and Victoria Pratt play the parents of two kids who find their lives turned upside down when tornadoes hit their town right before Christmas. They have to find their kids, and unfortunately, one of them disobeyed and now can't be found. It's a great lesson as the kids learn to grow up and even help their parents, and we see how far a parent will go to save their kids. I thought it was exciting, not too violent, and very well made. The daughter, I don't know the actress's name, is going to be a big star!! The only reason I didn't give a 10 was because there was some talk about climate change and how it's our fault, and I didn't think that was necessary in a family film.
