Storyline

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..

Trivia

In the early 1990s, Sylvester Stallone was attached to star in a similar project to this film, called "Gale Force," about an ex-Navy SEAL who defends a seacoast town from a gang of modern pirates during a hurricane. David Chappe had written the script and Renny Harlin was going to direct. Carolco Pictures had a $40 million budget for the film, but creative disagreements over the script and concerns about cost forced Carolco to scrap the film and make Cliffhanger (1993) instead. Also in 1995 Stallone was involved to star in another similar film titled "No Safe Haven", written by Drew Yanno and Anthony Borghi, in which he would play a Marine who has to fight against militia-like cult who take over Martha's Vineyard and take president's family as hostages during large hurricane, and only help he has is the president who managed to escape from cult members while they were taking over the island. But "No Safe Haven" was also cancelled very early in production. See more »

Goofs

When a large explosion occurs downtown during the height of the hurricane, the resulting smoke doesn't move in any direction but lazily upward, despite the very high winds that just seconds before, caused a man to be blown sideways while holding onto a cell tower. See more »

Quotes

Casey: As long as I have the code, they don't have the money. As long as they don't have the money, the hostages live. If they get it, they will kill all the witnesses.
Will: [retreiving her gun and a crowbar from the Dominator] Follow me.
Casey: What... what?
Will: Come on!
Casey: I'm following a damn weatherman.
Will: You'll learn to love it.

Don't go in expecting much and you'll be surprised...
7 April 2018 | by flyingthorSee all my reviews

Ok, so there's more than a few plot holes, ridiculous lines and 'what the hell?' moments, and the sub-plot between the brothers is unnecessary. All that aside, it's actually a pretty enjoyable movie. The acting from the main characters is for the most part solid, the story line was interesting enough to keep me interested for 90 odd minutes, and the effects were top notch. Seems like they really pumped a lot of money into CGI to make up for other shortcomings, and while they exaggerated the power of the storm way too much at times it was still impressive.

If you found movies like 'The Day After Tomorrow' and 'Geostorm' enjoyable you'll more than likely enjoy this too!
