Editorial Reviews

A mysterious disease is spreading across the country, killing people with alarming speed in this pulse-pounding, action-filled thriller. Men in Trees co-stars Anne Heche (Hung) and James Tupper (Samantha Who?) reignite their chemistry as two strangers brought together in their urgent mission to find a cure. Heche is Dr. Tess Martin, a top virologist driven by her tragic past. Her only hope is Jack Bowen (Tupper), a rule-breaking renegade who holds the key to the disease’s horrendous origins.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Writing - But a Great Presentation May 12, 2010
By Compay
Format:DVD
Toxic Skies is one of those straight-to-video movies that is a step above most Redbox fare. For being a low budget film shot in Canada, this movie has great cinematography and editing. Kevin Blumenfeld also did a top-notch job with the movie's score.

Canadian director Andrew C. Erin doesn't have many movies under his belt, but he's definitely talented. I had seen his directing work before in Tornado Valley, only he's working with a better cast in this film. Anne Heche gives a solid performance as Dr. Tess Martin, a virologist struggling to discover the truth behind a deadly illness. Daniel Bacon also shines as Dr. Raj Patel, her friend and fellow physician.

So why give a film with a solid cast and great directing only three stars? The story is lacking. Toxic Skies cobbles a few elements from the movie "Outbreak", particularly why it becomes personally important for Tess to quickly discover a cure. On one hand, I give Andrew Erin credit for choosing such an original danger (chemtrails), but the movie isn't as suspenseful as it could have been. The film touches on an important motivation of Tess' physician work, yet never returns to it. There just seemed like great potential for backstories, or learning more about the two main doctors in general.

Toxic Skies is definitely worth watching once, before you decide whether or not to buy the DVD. With the cast and cinematography, I think it had the potential of a five-star film, if only the writing had been better. It's still an under the radar movie that's worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love these schlocky made-for-TV movies. January 13, 2013
Format:DVD
Movies like these are devoid of the on-set scientific validity expert. But, THAT is okay. I do not care about rocket science.
The special effects(SFX) are never going to be as good as major budget movies like "Men In Black 1;2;3" --- where the cred-
ability/probability of two unicycles being able to actually fit UNDER a regular-looking old car is even remotely possible.
I say check your disbelief at the door. Pop yer popcorn. Turn the 5.1 UP! and just melt into yer chair and enjoy.

The movies
I
like very RARELY get any Academy Award Nominations -- much less, OSCARS!

One word: "ENJOY!"

5.0 out of 5 stars WE ALREADY HAVE TOXIC SKIES ! May 10, 2014
By sasha
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My standard for a good realistic viral contagion movie has always been Outbreak. Toxic Skies presents a different look at a different scenario of the contamination of the earth. A couple days ago, on Google News I read that the Politicians have now officially recognized and stated that "global warming" is a danger to life on earth. This year, 2014, we have seen excessive heat in the Spring particularly in the West, a colder than normal winter, higher food prices due to crops failing, etc.

People are getting sick and dying in Toxic Skies. Anne Heche is brought in as a virologist to study the problem. Patients blood work shows a high concentration of chemicals. Since antibiotics aren't working she and her colleagues are trying to get the chemicals out of the systems of the patients to save their lives. This movie is a warning to folks. Chemicals kill and if we don't know if now we better learn it sooner than later.

I was accidentally exposed to dangerous chemicals in my office administration job in Chicago. My heart, lungs and kidneys were damaged. I finally was sent to a doctor specializing in environmental allergens. I was literally dying and she told me "get the chemicals out of your system." We proceeded to do that and I have progressed to where I am not totally dependent on anyone.

We are so quick to look at a disaster movie, label it as fiction and move on with our lives. This movie presents a realistic scenario and I am glad I don't live near any airports as I would be moving ASAP. Great movie, great plot, good entertainment and something to think about.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sad Testament To A Once Promising Career January 1, 2012
By MadMacs
Format:DVD
I'm not going to judge the whys or attempt to analyze the events, only to note that the career of Anne Heche is certainly one that remains memorable for its incredible downward spiral. Despite her talent, which in my opinion is still considerable, this is one of the best examples I can think of when someone denies there's a conspiracy within Hollywood's surprisingly cloistered mental and political compound. And for a talented actress once teamed with Harrison Ford and Johnny Depp, punishment for "breaking the rules" is meted out with projects like this.

It's stunning irony that the very industry that proudly decries The Blacklist, used against creators like Dalton Trumbo and Lionel Stander, willingly continues to do so on the sly against current artists they deem "inappropriate". Will they feel shame 40 years down the road? I think so.

My hope is that there will be another Tarantino, a renegade filmmaker who will scoop from the so-called bottom and uplift solid talents, bringing them back into the light. Not so much rescuing careers, as acknowledging and revealing the new Hollywood shame and hypocrisy.

'Skies' is essentially a SciFi Saturday filler. The day they set aside for their Disaster & Creature Weekends, fairly innocuous direct-to-video cheapies that offer the gamut of disasters, aliens and monsters. Sometimes, like this flick, a government conspiracy.

Tells the story of medical researchers and doctors who are battling a new plague - but whose origins seem to be less biologically based and more chemical; less a natural mutation of a known disease and one more likely linked to an artificial source.
