***Worst Parts About This Film***
I found the film didn't draw me in. Some of the characters were cheesy. Some of the gear was dime-a-dozen techno-cool. A lot of the stunts were unbelievable (as-in outlandish). I would be inclined to believe someone if they told me that the script contained no dialogue but instead was more of a story-arc and the actors made up their own lines. The film was okay as something to play in the background while I accomplished things better worth my time.

***Best Part About This Film***
Half of the music sounded like an attempt to rip-off the Tron Legacy soundtrack by Daft Punk ..... beyond that .... meh.

***Other Best Part About This Film***
When the credits rolled at the end.

Enjoyably bad, like many heist movies but not overlong long like some of them. Corny, cheesy, with some laughable CGI. It tries for snappy dialogue and there was a lot of action.

Great roller-coaster of an action movie. First of all this is a clean movie, virtually no swearing, nudity or sexually inappropriate scenes, and even the Antagonist did not initially want to kill anyone during the robbery. It's like Logan Lucky meets Geostorm. This is a creative idea, great acting and decent CGI. Where do you find a clean and fun movie these days?

A concoction of the worst actors, cheesiest theme, most cliché plot line, and blinding special effects. This movie is so boring I didn't want to finish it. It had literally no memorable characters and it felt like all the characters were trying to be "big bad adults" by swearing. Not at all recommended.

This was a really good movie and I've no idea why people below didn't like it. A lot of the effects were real hurricane footage and the CGI looked real enough to us. The acting was surprisingly good and with the exception of Maggie Grace who is of course familiar from so many action films, the two leads were unknown to me and they were pretty good - I've certainly watched worse. With a couple of twists and some jump-back moments, it was a thoroughly watchable movie and we plan on watching it again. Contained some truths about global warming too, that are pretty scary but it wasn't preachy. I particularly loved the laidback, downhome appeal of the two brother/heroes! And they were funny. And I always enjoy Maggie.

This crime film and thriller movie is about a large group of thirty armed people who intend on stealing from a treasury facility before a giant hurricane hits the town. This movie had one of those really strange storylines where it seems like the movie was trying to cover every possible genre within one film. The special effects were pretty dreadful and the characters were so cliche that it was almost painful to watch. I would rate this movie 1.5/5 stars, and recommend it to those who feel like watching a movie that they can laugh at and feel entertained. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Absurd Environmental B.$. propaganda, aimed at young boys (The movie is more like a CGI video game.), and filled with outright lies re: real statistical information. (i.e. The "Message" embedded in the film, sugar coated with all the 180˚ Action & Explosions.)
The Director is self-proclaimed as saying: "There's probably not a human being that hates Donald Trump more then me." And, that he fantasizes about torturing him. So there's a good foundation of rational thought that sets the overall tone of the "movie".

Looks like our projected course for Tammy's on the money. Upgrade it from a tropical storm to a Category 1 hurricane. Hurricane force wind's diameter is up to 500 miles. Looks like it's gonna hit Alabama and Florida. Get me the latest surface readings.
-They're warm. Way too warm. The gulf's at 91 degrees 200 miles out.

…we got 500 miles of Armageddon on its way to crush your house and destroy your life. All joking aside, that is case number one for man-made climate change, the ocean warming. It just gives more and more energy to these hurricanes. Right now the limit's Cat 5. Pretty soon it's gonna be Cat 6 and 7 and so on and so forth. By that time you're killing hundreds of thousands of people. If we can just figure out their secrets, you know, me and my colleagues, people like us, we could mitigate how these storms occur, maybe even stop them altogether.

You really think this could work, this... Pressure inversion.

We did it!
-We're on the top of a truck, we haven't done shxt.
Hey, one thing I learned in the war, man. You gotta take your victories where you find them.
===
So you're a hometown boy, huh?
-Uh-huh. I took a small detour to Afghanistan and back, but that was just to break up the monotony.
===
That's the eye of the storm. About forty miles wide. It can be like a bright, sunny day in the middle of hell.
===
I hate old money. It's greasy. It smells. It's been up a thousand noses and buried in too many G-strings.
===
And this town just woke up from the 1940s, so there can't be but three of those cell phone towers in this whole place...
===
I'm following a damn weatherman.
- You'll learn to love it.

It’s like I said, fate works in crazy ways, like when I was sitting in a bar on my own, bitching about my lot in life, and right next to me was another man doing the same thing.
-What are you telling me this for? I was there, you idiot!
