NYC: Tornado Terror (2008) Poster

What appears to be harmless little whirlwinds and dust devils turns out to be a precursor to something deadlier and ends up threatening New York City's very existence.

| How come this always happens to NYC?
de Boer stars as a meteorologist who witnesses something unbelievable and (no surprise, since she's the lead) is the only one who can provide an answer as to what's going on. She can even provide a solution to the problem, but (big surprise here) the mayor thinks she's a fruitcake and there's no real threat to the city.

Usually someone like de Boer is what attracts me to a film like this, as I liked her when she co-starred in the final years of "Star Trek: DS9." But I'm a weather freak when it comes to tornadoes and I usually watch whatever film comes on and I see it in the guide. I apologize for the sarcasm as far as "no surprise...big surprise," but it seems like film writers and directors can't seem to get your attention unless it happens in a city like New York City. About the only thing that I find real is the attitude of the mayor and I found myself being reminded of the mayor of New York in "Ghostbusters." I guess that's why they need to make this sort of thing happen in NYC, as anyone in the central part of the US, who live with tornadoes every summer, realize the threat, but you need millions and millions of people in a centralized area to not take cover when something like this would happen.

There's no way I could give a movie like this anything above two stars. It ranks right up there with the movie I saw about volcanoes in the Big Apple last year!
