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 trailer, viewers are told that the heist is planned during the monstrous hurricane that is pushing 600 miles per hour. The Great Red Spot, a massive hurricane on Jupiter that can fit two Earths in it, is also a 600-mile-per-hour storm. The highest sustained wind speed ever recorded in a hurricane on Earth is 190 miles per hour. See more »

Goofs

In order to cut communications and stop them resolving the 'code', an attempt is made to pull down a roof-mounted telecommunications microwave tower. This, we are told, will stop the connection to 'the satellite'. The tower has no dishes pointing to any satellite, only horizontally (to the next relay in the chain). However, these dishes need to be within 1 degree to ensure a continuous link. Yet we are shown the mast pulled away from vertical, yet the data still flows until it is finally toppled and falls into the street below. See more »

Quotes

Dixon: Fate works in crazy ways, like when I was sitting in a bar on my own, bitching about my lot in life, and right next to me was another man doing the same thing.
Perkins: What are you telling me this for? I was there, you idiot!

Not A Bad Film
4 April 2018 | by lombligo2003See all my reviews

This movie is not bad, I was skeptical at first because of the low reviews and score....but it was better than I expected it to be. There's good action, special effects and good acting. Not even close to your typical low budget crap.
