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

Could have been good... but wasn't.
28 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a film whose plot showed potential. Ok it's far fetched but no more than a GREAT many films that were a success. The tiny budget is obvious, with poor special effects and synthesized orchestral mood music (which never comes off). Martin Sheen is average, but he was never going to give his best performance in this kind of film. Perry does his best to hold the lead with an admirable performance, but it's the way the movie is handled that lets everybody down. It looks like the B movie it is; like some second rate TV series. The movie also contains the most poorly acted scene I have seen in any movie ever; it is not one that contains any of the lead actors though. Done properly, the plot could have carried this movie to success at least as great as Twister, but it was obvious from the outset that it was never going to happen that way.
