Military aircraft talked about was a P-3. Actual aircraft shown flying was a C-130. C-130's would be used in the context of the movie, not P-3's. See more »

Full of that Skiffy Channel Canadian Cheeziness!
12 June 2009 | by JoeB131See all my reviews

Okay, you have all the factors for a Skiffy Channel movie here. Made in Canada, military guys in the wrong uniforms, bad CGI, an ex-star from another Sci-Fi series no one watches anymore.

The plot is that a terminally ill scientist steals the Dead Sea Scrolls to discover the location of the amulets of Ba'al, the Storm God of ancient Sumeria. (Except the Dead Sea Scrolls were written by Hebrews who didn't believe in Ba'al, but never mind. He decides to dig up all four amulets and unleash Ba'al because his HMO wouldn't cover Lartril. Or something!

Anyway, in another movie, Lexa Doig of Andromeda Fame, who still can't act, tries to alert the military that a really big storm is coming...So they do a lot of filler scenes in a room with big screen TV's and cheap computer graphics....

it's dumb, it's silly and it's lame. It's the Sci-Fi channel. Did you expect GOOD science fiction?
