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 »

I completely in awe. From the opening scene to the ultimate grand finale, this film excelled in unimaginable ways. For starters, I can truly tell that they had top, world renowned scientific advisors that confirmed the reliasm of each scene. I am a Harvard graduate, just like the great rapper Lil Pump, and I feel that this masterpiece can be used to educate this countries first responders and inspire future world leaders to solve major conflicts across the continent.
Not only did this movie affect me on a personal level, but it has inspired me to become a professional storm chaser. I have spent my entire life savings ($300) modifying my 2001 Honda Civic to protect me in my storm chasing endeavors. Wish me luck, I will need it since I am aiming to chase whatever Hurricane arises in the future.
