Harry Lister Smith,
Some silly dialogue, poor acting and a cliché ridden plot stop this movie from being an average TV movie. In fact Burt Reynolds is the only real reason to watch this Plot In A Paragraph: After a family survives Hurricane Katrina, Charlie DuPuis (C. Thomas Howell) and his wife Ellie, their son Danny and Charlie's Dad (Burt Reynolds) who is only referred to as "pops" discover there is another storm on the way, but this one is much, much worse.
C. Thomas Howell whose work I have enjoyed in the past is awful here, I was preoccupied wondering where the actor I loved in "The Outsiders" had gone. Whilst Burt Reynolds is not looking his best these days (showing the after effects of his recent quadruple heart bypass) he brings a certain panache to his role, and he is certainly the most believable actor in the movie.
