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..
Ben Cross (Dixon) and Ralph Ineson (Perkins) also starred in First Knight 1995. 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 »
297. The Hurricane Heist. Went in with real low expectations, I mean if "From the director of The Fast and the Furious" line didn't reel you in, it was probably the star power, the guy from True Blood is in it, and the girl from Lost star in... this. It actually wasn't bad, once you figure in the low expectations and all. A category 5 hurricane is on its way to a town in Alabama, along with a ton of cash thats about to be destroyed at the local treasury. But guess what? There are some bad guys out there that want to steal it, before its burned all up, and its up to the driver delivering the money, Casey, to do her best to stop them. And along with a set of brothers she meets, Will and Breeze, yea, Breeze, Casey gets the help she needs! Will and Breeze lost their dad during another Cat 5 storm awhile back. Breeze, turned into a flake, Will on the other hand grows up to be a storm chaser and eventually meets and falls in love with Bill Harding on the plains of Kansas...oops wrong movie, but yes he is a storm chaser.. And of course there's an inside man, which you'll probably never guess who it is, until his face appears on the screen for the first time and you'll be like... it's him. But overall, it's decent. I'm sure the CGI storms looked like butt on the big screen, but worked for the home TV lol... Filmbufftim on FB.
