In 1992 Alabama, Will and Breeze Rutledge are evacuating from the destructive Category 5 Hurricane Andrew with their dad. However, their truck gets stuck after avoiding a toppling tree in front of them and they are forced to take refuge in a nearby house. While trying to save the truck from blowing away, strong winds blow a water tank loose and it crushes their dad, killing him. In present day, another destructive hurricane named Tammy approaches the town in Alabama. Treasury agent Casey Corbyn is ordered by fellow employee Randy Moreno to summon Breeze, who now works as a handyman, and whose brother Will is a meteorologist, to fix the generator at a cash storage facility. While she is out of the facility, rogue Treasury agents, led by Connor Perkins, infiltrate the facility and hold employee Moreno hostage..
When Casey suggests using an ANFO bomb to stop the thieves when they leave the Treasury, she mentions that Timothy McVeigh used the same components to bomb a federal building. As of 2019, McVeigh's attack in 1995 remains the deadliest incident of domestic terrorism in U.S. history. See more »
The depiction and power of the eye wall is greatly exaggerated. The eye wall looks like a pyroclastic flow from a volcano and the edge of the eye wall annihilates anything in its path. The eye wall does not have the power to carry semi trucks away like a tornado as depicted in the film regardless of category. See more »
We should take the fight to them.
How do you mean?
Car bomb. We detonate it at a safe distance, but... car bomb. We just need ammonia, fertilizer, diesel, things we can get at a garden supply store.
How the hell do you know that?
When you're a fed, they teach you this shit. Timothy McVeigh took out the federal building with that.

Like I always say, I write only because of one of the three reasons:
1) if the movie is extremely good
2) if people are unnecessarily bashing a good movie
3) if it has a low rating.
I decided to write this review because of 1st reason.
I expected a Low-Budget action movie (B-movie in short), in the likes of Dolph Lundgren, Steven Seagal and Van Damme but it was surprisingly better one. I can not call it a B-movie, it is somehow in-between a B-movie and the big-budget action movies of Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. It does not have story development or planning of those big action movies but it is original, funny and has a really good Hurricane (best part of the movie). Go, forget the world, grab something to eat, sit and enjoy. you will not watch it 2nd time but for one time watch, hell yeah :)
