1.0 out of 5 stars Just Plain Awful!!!, August 19, 2012
This review is from: Metal Tornado (DVD)
Okay, I watched this last night with my fiance and a buddy of mine. The opening credits hadn't even finished rolling and already I was apologizing to them for picking such a horrible stinker of a movie.

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS***

Okay so the 3D graphics in this "movie" look like something that was made on someone's laptop in an afternoon using software from the 90's. Seriously, when you see the satellites and the energy collectors and the tornadoes, they are just so lame and goofy looking that you can't help but laugh at them!

The storyline is pretty stock and cookie-cutter. Some company has put all their money into this program and if it fails they'll go under. But at the VERY beginning there is this guy who is the head high science guy or something and he's shouting into the phone that the process is flawed and to shut the project down and if they don't that people will die. But they decide to ignore him, cuz after all what does he know? He's only the head of science and safety for the whole program, let's just ignore everything he says, I mean it's not like that's the reason we hired him!

So the experiment goes off and loses 2% of it's energy which spawns the tornado that is magnetic and is pulling in everything that is metal, thus creating the metal tornado that gives this movie it's name. So the tornado moves around yanking things into it, cars, motorcycles, a chainsaw, signs, etc. But NO ONE sees the damn thing! Seriously! Everyone is like, "Where'd it go?" or, "We have to find it!" I mean seriously! It's a HUGE FUNNEL CLOUD! It's not like it's Jason Bourne in New York City where it can just blend into it's surroundings. Just open your eyes and ears and you'll find it! Or you could just follow the path of destruction that it is leaving behind it!

On top of that several times people are driving along and the thing is just off to the side and they DON'T SEE IT! I mean seriously, do these people have like NO peripheral vision at all!?!

So the solution to this problem is to get the military to arm a drone with an EMP bomb and shoot it into the center to destroy it. It works, we cut to afterwards where our main characters are just sitting around enjoying a drink and the credits roll.

***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS***

In conclusion this movie looks like a made for TV movie that shoulda been a two part mini-series on the SyFy Channel and even then I wouldn't have watched it. The $1.30 I paid to get this outta the Redbox probably was more than what it cost to make this movie. God what a waste of time and money!
