Mad scientist Devlin (Tom Wynn-Davies) has just developed a device to create and control a tornado and now tests it with his small team - Helena (Nicola Wright), Greg (Derek Miller) and intern Anna (Sian Altman) -, and of course, it doesn't take long before the tornado they've created gets out of control, and in an attempt to tame it, Greg and the tornado's remote get sucked into the thing. And soon enough the tornado travels through the countryside following its own nature rather than Devlin's will, and on its way to wherever it grows in size, blows up a gas station and sucks up the resulting fire, turning it into a fire tornado, and threatens all nearby homes in a mercifully not very densely populated area. Devlin and company do their best to stay ahead of the tornado to pretty much manually warn all the locals to leave the area ...

Now meet Pierce (Daniel Godfrey), an accountant for the mob, a small wheel really, but due to the nature of his job he always keeps large amounts of money in his house, and the money's not really that well guarded, because who would steal from the mob, right? But if his house got destroyed by a tornado, the mob would never even find out they've been robbed, you just have to time it right - right? At least that's the theory of baddies Lyle (Jamie Robertson), Tommy (Matthew Marcelis) and Gavin (Martin Foreman), who break into Pierce's house with only minutes to spare before the tornado will hit. What they didn't figure was Pierce wouldn't give up the money just like that. And then Devlin's team storm into the place on their rescue mission, and get dragged into the whole heist situation they're barely equipped for ...


A heist movie that's part Twister, part Sharknado - now that's a new one for sure. And while the outcome might not exactly be a masterpiece - it suffers from a lack of budget to give the film it's proper scale, and from so-so special effects -, it's still a fun romp that mixes disaster and crime movie clichés with a gusto, keeps the pace high throughout to keep the audience at the edge of their seats, and yet finds the occasional flashes of humour in the goings-on. And the whole thing's carried by a competent enough ensemble to keep things grounded, making this a pretty entertaining watch.
