Movie Reviews

erica | Chattanooga, TN | 07/18/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a PAX network film about 90 minutes long. It stars Gerald McRaney (Promised Land, Major Dad and Simon and Simon fame)as a meteorologist (storm chaser) who at the beginning predicts a tornado and it doesn't happen due to a computer snafu. His daughter is part of a newteam of storm chasers covering the tornadoes. Enter a young man who helps him discover the computer snafu and presto!! the warnings in the state of Oklahoma are there for everyone to believe in or not. There is a city that is celebrating its 100th anniversary where a tornado is to hit on the day of the festivities. The town mayor is played by TV veteran Joan Van Ark. Her character is the one flaw in the film because her acting is so bad which is unusual for Van Ark. Anyhow she convinves the people not to believe in the Tornado warning and that all will go on as scheduled.

This movie is predictable, yet fun to watch. The acting, with the exception of Joan Van Ark who is really quite terrible (why she chose to do this film is beyond me...) is quite good. Gerald McRaney is at his solid, stalwart best, as usual. The girl who plays his daughter is fine and the boy who fixes the computer snafus and becomes McRaney's partner is o.k. What makes this film palatable are the special effects. They are really great and the movie is informative as well as to what to do if you are involved in a tornado or one is in your path. There are some implausible and unbelievable actions by the characters but for the most part, I enjoyed this film immensely. The DVD quality is fine. No extras are included. For PAX entertainment, wholesome family values this film is great to watch."
Good Plot and Great Special Effects

"This PAX original movie has wonderful special effects--some of the tornadoes look like actual tornadoes instead of CGI! The plot is good as well. Gerald McRaney (Promised Land) gives an outstanding performance as Jake Arledge, a storm chaser who tries to prove to his estranged daughter (Thea Gill) and nearly everyone else that his tornado warning system really DOES work.

If you're a fan of tornadoes or family movies I highly recommend this!"
