In Rutland, Vermont, Forestry Service supervisor Dan Blanchard and his wife Dr. Christy Blanchard hope life will return to normal now a transplant liver is expected for their brave son Jason (12). Daughter Marie was ordered to bring Jason to perform magic on Pete Crane's big car auction, but she sneaks off to go mountaineering with friends. The violent hail storm Medusa causes the small jet to crash in the forest. When Dan gets there, the brave paramedic, who unlike pilot Tom survived, urges him to take the liver and rush back, it's only good for a few more hours, but the storm rages on.

Frozen Impact met my low expectations
5 May 2003 | by weatherwatchSee all my reviews

"Frozen Impact" is typical of many TV movies that deal with the weather. It is a safe film for the family, which is quite an accomplishment these days, but it lacks in other areas. It has the typical plot of a family juggling work, health, and relationship concerns while a fierce hail storm named "Medusa" rolls through town. The hail storm is way overdone, as baseball sized hailstones fall intermittenly on a town in Vermont. The hail is unrealistic. Though the main focus of the movie is the weather, there doesn't seem to be much knowledge about how the weather works among the producers, directors, and writers of this film. I ended up losing patience with the film. But for those eternal optimists, there is a happy ending. I rate this movie 2 out of 10.
