Storyline

An unexplained, local split in the atmosphere causes a series of total unpredictable, yet devastating tornadoes. Rookie fireman Brian Flynn gets trapped in the underground sewage with his girlfriend, deputy mayor James 'Jim' Lawrence and climatologist Dr. Cassie Lawrence's niece Lori. Mayor Leonardo of New York initially refuses to pay proper attention to the phenomenon, a 'reelection threat', so the alert status remains too low for long. Atypical lightning discovered inside tornadoes adds unprecedented dangers. The Lawrences and aeronautics renegade Dr. Lars Liggenhorn conceive a possible solution by launching rockets, but NASA's Dr. Quinn overrules them, imposing standard silver iodine.

A Must-See (for all the wrong reasons!)
29 March 2013 | by m-alleyneSee all my reviews

I genuinely thought this film was a comedy/parody! I had to look it up on IMDb to find out for sure!

This is one seriously funny film (for all the wrong reasons!) It should be shown to all would-be film makers on the first day of class so they know NOT what to do!

The script is terrible and is only made worse by what I can only describe as the kind of acting I expected when I had to endure my kid's school plays! And just when you think it can't get any worse, on comes the Weather Reporter! Never have you wanted an innocent bystander to die more!

Two 'must see' parts of the film – 1) Cassie approaches a victim and asks what happened. She (shaking and shivering) points up at the sky and 2) the part which I'm going to title 'When the dogs disappear'! I wish I could list all the examples. But I'm afraid they would take longer to read than watching the film itself.

This is the kind of film they should show to homeless people just so they know their life could be so much worse (they could have their name in the credits of this movie!)
