Storyline

On August 23, 1992, a black-ops research program led by General Roberts perfected a device to control the weather. It was launched from a specially outfitted plane and tested for the first time. But control of the machine was lost, and within hours a deadly hurricane had formed. It became the greatest natural disaster since the San Francisco Earthquake - Hurricane Andrew. In the wake of this catastrophe, all evidence of the program was buried. Seven years later, General Roberts has revived the top-secret project. He recruits ambitious meteorologist Ron Young, who has developed software that directs weather systems. The STORM device, now equipped with this software, has been launched into a weather front 300 miles off the California coast. Moments after the device has whipped the storm into a full-blown hurricane, Roberts orders it targeted at Mexico. The storm has grown in power to a super-hurricane, with wind speeds exceeding 400 miles per hour. A struggle on board the plane ensues, ... Written by David Ridlen

Goofs

General Roberts, an Air Force Brigadier General, is wearing the blue striped fours of service longevity of service ribbon without any oak leaf clusters. He likely would not be wearing a ribbon without clusters, because the service ribbon, as he wears it, signifies less than even the second award, and it is likely a general officer would have four or five clusters for longevity of service befitting a Brigadier General.

A Waste of Time...
24 August 1999 | by Bass2See all my reviews

I cant believe I sat through this movie until the end. Luke Perry delivers a very unconvincing acting job in a movie that has great potential but delivers nothing.

This movie isn't terrible and if it was on TV then it might be worth watching but don't spend any money on purchasing or hiring it.

The biggest problem with this movie is virtually nothing is resolved, there are a number of plot twists or important events that are simply discarded and not mentioned again. Because of this the movie ends with many, many unresolved issues.

Lets just hope they don't try for a sequel...
