Storyline

When ex-firefighter Scott Nylander and a group of ecologists approach a silo filled with oil to hang a banner with an eco-message, they suddenly realize they came to the wrong place at the wrong time. There's a bomb attached which is going to explode in a few seconds! As our heroes are hiding, a mass explosion causes a huge flaming tornado, which starts to destroy everything in its way. It turns out that the silo contained an experimental fuel called MT-11 crafted by the Synco Company. Scott and his friends are accused of being terrorists that caused the explosion. Chased by Synco mercenaries, they have to stop the fire twister, before it destroys LA.

Another in an endless stream of cheap disaster movies filled with washed-up leading actors, nobody supporting actors, and lousy CGI. This one's got Casper Van Dien in it - no stranger to the genre having also appeared in 500 MPH STORM, which is pretty much interchangeable with this movie. The story is about a private company who devise a new and deadly form of fuel, which then gets caught up in a twister and refuses to be extinguished.

As with so many of these films, almost the entire running time consists of a central family who find themselves caught up in an almost sentient disaster which then proceeds to chase them all over the country. Shots of the fire twister chasing a jeep must take up at least half of the running time. The acting is wooden, the characters are made of cardboard, and the movie exudes cheapness from every poor. I love the over the top nature of the evil company which sends a machine-gun toting hit squad after any witnesses to this man-made catastrophe; totally over the top and cheesy with it. The only positive I can find to say about FIRE TWISTER is that the CGI effects aren't quite as terrible as is the norm for this genre.
