A top-secret U.S. military team, led by Jim Roberts (Martin Sheen, The Departed), has discovered how to control the weather, turning nature into a powerful weapon of destruction. All they need is a bright mind to finish the project. Enter Dr. Ron Young (Luke Perry, TV's 90210)—risk-taking professor, inventor and renowned meteorologist. But when a hurricane launched to obliterate Mexico's west coast is re-routed to L.A., Dr. Young is the only one who can stop it. As L.A. readies for the storm of a century, Dr. Young must race to the center of chaos to stop a man-made killer gone astray.
Riveting action and an all-too-plausible premise make Storm a thriller you don't want to miss!

UFO Films gets a couple of familiar faces, in this case Luke Perry and Martin Sheen, to fool everyone into thinking that there might be some quality to their movies. Don't get fooled. Their "special" effects always look very cheap and they seem to throw together a script in a matter of days.
"Storm Tracker" is about a silly US government conspiracy to manipulate the weather in order to create vicious hurricanes. Supposedly, Hurricane Andrew many years ago was their doing. Yeah...uh huh. Of course, they don't want to create hurricanes to destroy their own country. That experiment simply got out of control. Their main objective is to send devastating storms toward their enemies to cause maximum damage without risking the lives of soldiers or having to launch missiles or drop bombs.
Even at a low price, you will still be wasting your money on this film. You can see nonsense like this any day of the week on free TV.
After making a weather machine that causes hurricane Andrew, (Martin Sheen in full blown bad guy mode) wants to try again so he gets Luke Perry(who looks to be picking up a paycheck here) to help him and guess what, now L.A. is about to be wiped out by this thing.
Martin Sheen made this movie because his daughter Renee Estevez is in it and as stated Luke picked up a paycheck, so that tells you why they made this one. It's not really that lousy, and if mindless entertainment is what you want, for a dollar you could do worse, but don't pay anymore than that for it.
One-dimensional characters would have been an improvement; these were 50's-tech robots responding to punch-card commands. No personality, no motivation, no reason to care.
Technical development was similarly non-existent.even tornadoes don't hit 400 mph wind speeds, so it would require at least a little exposition to suspend disbelief.
"Twister" may have its plot weaknesses and technical inaccuracies, but at least it's an enjoyable guilty pleasure. "Storm Tracker" isn't worth the trouble it takes to press "Play", let alone buy the disc.
Skip it for something else - anything else.
