Editorial Reviews

As an unusual drought ravages the Pacific Northwest, two scientists and their team of experts attempt to reverse climate change by releasing thousands of liquid-condensing drones into the atmosphere. Designed to induce precipitation through a delicate balance of hot and cold, the drones suffer a torrential error. Violent, icy windstorms whip through the streets, tossing residents around like rag dolls. To make matters worse, the freezing twisters begin rapidly gaining in size and heading toward heavily populated cities. Now it's up to the team to stop the disaster before it's too late.

Format: DVD
This SyFy Channel original film is neither outstanding nor awful; it's about what you'd expect for a movie made for television.

Since Amazon doesn't offer a synopsis, here's the rundown: The Federal Science Foundation has developed a means for creating storms, only their first major experiment goes wrong; the result are tornados that freeze everything in their path. Enter Charlie Price (played by Mark Moses of Mad Men and Desperate Housewives), a former scientist turned fiction writer, whose novels generally involve weather disasters. Price finds himself pitting his scientific and writing knowledge against an impending weather nightmare that threatens nearby cities.

The good news is that the majority of the cast are heavily experienced in television, so the acting is decent compared to most straight to video movies. Charlie Price's dry humor keeps the dialogue moving, though not especially interesting. The movie also deals with a competitive dynamic between Price and a younger scientist, though a subplot introduced between them is never returned to by the film's end.

While the movie's concept is somewhat original, the film overall is average in every respect. If you're a fan of science fiction movies, this would make for an adequate rental on a slow afternoon. I can't see anyone actually buying the DVD, though, unless they're a big fan of Mark Moses.

as a devotee of 50s sci-fi, this reviewer has rather a soft spot for B or made for TV films especially in the science fiction genre. It always occurs to me that the director, actors and crew are probably grateful for the opportunity and very often their hard work, within the constraints of a tight budget and schedule, are very much in evidence. Admittedly in this movie liberties are taken with science and some of the actors' reactions (to 'cgi shot to be inserted here' scenes) are a little underplayed but on the whole this is a good, tight 'renegade weather' movie that held my attention from the first to the last minute. A poor relation to 2012 it may be but it proves a huge budget is not required to produce an entertaining sci-fi film and in a comparison of dialogue and character rendition with 2012 for me Ice Twisters wins hands down.

An other movie that show what can happen when man tinkers with the weather, they may think they are helping but if it goes wrong this movie shows what can happen. I don't say this could happen but a possablety good special afects and story .

Better-than-average disaster flick with some very good special effects. The "crunch" at the beginning was worth it all! Good acting and good music score really make this add up to a good movie. If you like disaster flicks, you WILL like this one.

Made for TV Yawn-fest ... A no budget and uninspired waste that rips off elements of Twister and Dante's Peak - with ice... Bad acting, a poor generic script and unrealistic and pretentious characters don't help either. It's too tame to be interesting, and too bad to be campy. Obviously made as a tax write off.. No idea why it's rated PG-13, since there's no sex, no violence and certainly no language, unless "heck" is now a swear word?? I don't understand the positive reviews for this one, it's below zero in my book.. It makes Sharknado look like the Titanic.

The storyline, acting, and special effects were all really good. Not extremely realistic, but a good movie none the less.
