I am a total sucker for any film about tornadoes. You throw in a metal tornado…even better. Top it off with Lou Diamond Phillips and Greg Evigan and you’ve got a winner. This film obviously screams low-budget cheesy horror but it is fun, entertaining and packs some decent special effects. Lou Diamond Phillips definitely is the main draw to this film for me and delivered the goods. I mean, HELLO!?, a film about a metal tornado, how can you go wrong?
The film’s premise is fun simple. I mean what do you honestly expect from a film titled “Metal Tornado”. Due to an ground-breaking industrial experiment that goes out of control, Metal objects start being consumed from the developed magnetic tornadoes and, of course, start wreaking havoc everywhere. It is up to Lou Diamond Phillips to defeat the tornado and save the day.
Anyone who would even consider this film knows exactly what they are getting themselves in for and should have a blast watching this film. This plays exactly like an Syfy Original Movie and if you are a fan of those this is for you, otherwise stay away. The DVD comes with zero special features, which is very disappointing.
