Good effort for a made for TV movie
6 March 2021 | by XpocalypseSurvivalSee all my reviews

For a made for TV movie, this was pretty good. It is a pretty standard disaster story. It makes sense (if you just accept that the science is correct). Tends to be a bit cliche and predictable. The effects aren't great, but work well enough. Many reviews complain about the acting, but I thought they did a pretty good job. Yes, there are muted reactions that you get when you tell actors to pretend a bunch of ice tornadoes are about to kill you, but that is to be expected. Overall, a solid middle of the road film for me.

Survival lesson: hugging is good for your health, and for surviving ice tornadoes.
