Not only is the film uncut but the opening credits were purposely lengthened to make the movie the expected length of 90 minutes (usually demanded by certain distributors). See more »

One the next scene when the ice-cream truck is driving away it has 3 ice-cream cones: vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. See more »
Okay yet another mediocre Dolph movie... I hear ya, but at least it's not Fallen Knight (AKA: The Minion). This time around Lundgren turns in a good, but predictable performance as a run of the mill character of Major Jack Holloway. Who's a test pilot for the military's top secret warplane "The Storm Catcher" hence the movie's title.
What happens to the plane? Well of course it's stolen and he's framed for everything. Is there a conspiracy theory lodged somewhere in Storm Catcher? Yep. Do they use his wife and daughter as leverage to get him to do what they want? Yep. That itself isn't so bad they are typical clichés of the genre - it's the general inept story and more stupid characters than I'd like to count. Like two CIA agents named Lock & Load. Storm Catcher is yet another undistinguished action flick with predictability written all over it. It's a cheapie thru and thru (check out the usual assortment of stock footage), but somehow comes out looking half decent. Lundgren is decent here, but that doesn't allow it to rise over the giant heap of mediocre action flicks on the market as it is. You've seen this before, you've probably seen it done better.
