Storyline

It's tornadoes, hurricanes, electrical storms, and mass destruction as the effects of global warming brew into a super storm that threatens to rend the earth with an unprecedented power. Beautiful scientist Faith Clavell, storm chaser Tommy Tornado, and Judith Carr, the head of FEMA, can stop the inevitable from happening-if they have the courage to venture into the roiling blackness of the storm itself.

Goofs

During television coverage of Hurricane Eduardo, the reporter states the storm is a Category 5 hurricane with "wind gusts to 150 MPH". 150 MPH winds would actually be classified as Category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale. Further on this, 150 gusts would likely indicate 135 MPH sustained winds, which is still Category 4 (131-155 MPH). Category 5 wind speeds start at 156 MPH sustained with higher gusts. See more »

Quotes

Penny Hall: No, Monty! You heard what you wanted to hear. Now you listen to me. You have committed a grave sin, and you will be punished because you were right about one thing, Monty, it is the End of Days. And your guilty. Of anger. Of envy. Of lust. Your only hope is to repent, Monty. Now you tell me where the children are and then, and only then, will I help you out of this hell you've made for yourself. And the worst thing about your hell, Monty, I won't be there with you.

Spend your time better - go watch some paint dry...
6 November 2005 | by skard42See all my reviews

Just terrible. A total waste of time. There were a surprising number of actors and actresses that I had previously thought were at least half-way decent, but for each of them, this is clearly their worst performance. Sadly, though, as bad as the acting was, it was the best thing this "movie" had going for it. This is doubly bad, as I am pretty sure the producers were banking on special effects to save the movie. But they were very disappointing, despite being the obvious focus of the film. In addition to their technical flaws, they fall into the recent trap of thinking that every big disaster scene must have some famous landmark in it. One or two can give you a sense of setting, constantly using landmarks gets really annoying. Worse, the special effects were poorly used, distracting one from the story, instead of adding to it. Which might have bothered me if the story wasn't so weak. The plot had holes you could drive a Mack truck through. And the worst part of the whole thing was the stupid lines they had. One prime example was one where a meteorologist was saying that he used to be able to count on certain things, like the fact that anything above a Category 5 storm was impossible. Well duh! The category 6 and 7 hurricanes that he talks about are impossible. You don't even have to know a thing about science beyond what the classifications are to know that. Category 5 hurricanes or tropical storms are anything with wind speeds above 155 mph. So no matter how strong the storm, it's still only Category 5 by definition. This is but one example of the bad dialog in the film. It's also an example of the science in the movie that is as bad as "science" in the presidential reports on global warming that this movie seems to be trying to satirize. An easy target, but it manages to fail miserably. Almost makes you wonder if they have the opposite agenda...
