Hilda blows hard
13 September 2002 | by wallysallySee all my reviews

This movie really isn't as bad as some might suggest! What's not too like about Frank (Sgt. Carter) partying like there's no tomorrow while an ill wind blows thru town? "Pyle....get me a drink of the good bourbon...it's 15 years old!" Or Martin Milner flying a Coast Guard plane into the thick of things, risking his life and his crew for a wayward boat skippered by Larry Hagman? The special effects are minimal, but the actual footage of one of the worst storms in history, is well worth the price of admission.
