PLUGGING THE OZONE HOLE

"This 1995 made for TV film fails to give the viewer what one expects in a disaster film: lots of disastrous events! While a hole in the ozone layer threatening LA is something to fear, the movie doesn't capitalize on it enough to satisfy this viewer. Aside from a bunch of birds crashing into a window, a horde of bees swarming downtown, and thousands of bugs in a small house, there isn't a whole lot of excitement in this movie. NORTHERN EXPOSURE's John Corbett stars as Dr. Evan Thorne, a rogue scientist who predicts the ozone hole will cover the skies of LA and bring about ecological destruction; Tom Irwin is his former boss, Dr. Schiffrin, who laughs at Thorne's theory and refuses to back up his story; Josie Bissett is Thorne's sister who also works for the mayor who wants Schiffrin to confirm the speculation; Ben Browder is the sturdy pilot who is also engaged to Bissett; Bradley Whitford is the gungho reporter who follows the story.
It's all been done so much better. Recommended only for those disaster movie freaks out there!"
