(2014) (Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action/Disaster: Various people must contend with an outbreak of tornadoes that ravage a small town.
- For storm chaser and documentary filmmaker Pete Moore (MATT WALSH), it's been a long dry spell since he and his crew -- cameramen Daryl (ARLEN ESCARPETA), Lucas (LEE WHITTAKER) and newcomer Jacob (JEREMY SUMPTER) -- have gotten any decent footage of tornadoes in action. Even the addition of meteorologist Allison Stone (SARAH WAYNE CALLIES) hasn't seemed to help any, and now with his funding cut off, he's become desperate and sees the latest series of severe storms as his last chance to get what he's after. Despite having lost all confidence in her weather prediction skills, Pete follows Allison's advice to head to the small town of Silverton.
There, Silverton High School vice principal Gary Fuller (RICHARD ARMITAGE) is preparing for their graduation ceremonies and has little time for his 17-year-old son, Donnie (MAX DEACON), making a time capsule video, something Gary previously requested. Donnie's more outgoing younger brother, Trey (NATHAN KRESS), thinks that Donnie should do something for himself, and thus the junior offers to help classmate Kaitlyn (ALYCIA DEBNAM CAREY) reshoot some video at an abandoned mill for a class project rather than video the graduation ceremony for his dad.
As amateur storm chasers and local goofballs Donk (KYLE DAVIS) and Reevis (JON REEP) throw all caution to the wind by going into the storms, Pete and his crew do the same, all while the Fuller men and everyone else in Silverton are unprepared for the outbreak of tornadoes that are about to strike their town.
