Editorial Reviews

San Francisco becomes a target for waves of destructive meteors after a rogue comet orbits the earth. For astronomer Michelle Young, what was meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime celestial event turns into her worst nightmare as thousands of meteors break the surface of the atmosphere and bombard the city.

Said it before, every once in a long while, SciFi picks up one for their Weekend Specials that hits the mark.

Like a blue moon, it's not often. So I give full props to the filmmakers: Director Tibor Takàcs for guiding the featured players Michael Trucco and the incredibly delicious Kari Matchett toward a very respectable product.

It helps that 'Storm' was carried by a surprisingly adroit screenplay and a very decent slate of special effects, including the destruction of the Golden Gate Bridge. Nice.

And for some reason I really enjoyed the daylight meteoroid strikes; in addition to being very realistic, there was a sense of sinister purpose behind them. Excellent.

'Storm' is better than most disaster filcks by virtue of its timing, editing and movie-believable script. Directed with the right amount of action without losing pace, delivering the right doses of mystery and terror at the right moments.

This production is superior to others in the genre for many reasons, but one that stood out was that the filmmakers, and writers in particular, held back the big punch for the climax. Too often the desire to showboat the 'scary monster' defeats its purpose. You want the dark antagonist to be hidden from the audience until the very last moment - the final confrontation. It's really that simple. But I'm always dazed at the amount of movies, from a spectrum of themes and styles, which suffer from Premature Edification.

Unfortunately for them - there's no pill that will fix it.

Now, admittedly there were some weak spots - i.e. Cheap sets. But most were minor and forgivable. And there were only slight dalliances with cliché, but nothing that would completely derail the film's energy.

Meteor Storm is an excellent made for T.V. movie. It's strong male and female leads (Michael Trucco: New Battle Star Galactica -- and Kari Matchett: (Invasion and Cube2, also 24) are believable as estranged spouses struggling to balance demanding work and two teenage kids. Both have the skills and authority to help fight the bizarre meteor storm.

Matchett plays a Dr of Astronomy and meteorology (something like that) and is working with her college students at night to view a meteor storm passing through our solar system very near earth. The event is supposed to be spectacular but turns out to be shockingly dangerous. Instead of the "amazing light show in the sky," the meteors break into small pieces and travel to earth, destroying whatever they hit, leaving only small marble sized holes. (Hint -- they'll keep getting bigger).

Meanwhile, Matchett's children are at the pier watching the events. Suddenly people are screaming, some being killed by the tiny meteors. The kids see first-hand how deadly the storm is. They find the daughter's boyfriend injured and the three stay together.

There is a third interest in the story between a news reporter and his camera woman. They play a unique roll in the show, ther reporter acting as the calloused, "We need the really big shot," guy who becomes human. Other relationships work throughout the story with the military called in and working with Trucco and Matchett to find a way to save San Francisco from the next three waves of the meteor storm.

This is a family friendly, enjoyable story. It examines relationships, friendships, relationships with superiors, and just what someone will do to help another.

I too was pleasantly surprised as to how entertaining this movie was.

I was expecting the usual SyFy fare and what I got was a decent movie with reasonable and believable special effects. The lead actor does more running around after his family than saving the world but that was neither here nor there.

The movie moves at a quick pace and the acting is pretty good. All in all it was, as I said, a pleasant surprise of a movie.
