Some young people with weather-manipulat8ng psychokinetic powers are in a covert quasi-governmental program with a view to them being weaponised by a drooling megalomaniac military nutcase.

I could see the potential. There was the germ of an idea, and there were some halfway decent effects.

I'll tell you what else there was. Perfunctory writing, with no attempt to build character development, genuine plot progression, engaging dialogue, 9r anything else which might capture an audience. Poor casting and worse acting, especially from the Harrison Ford-lite military maniac, whose ludicrous scenery-chewing performance seemed to have come from another film entirely.

I won't criticise direction and production value. Neither was great, but I got a strong feeling that both were the best which could be done with the resources available. But there was a very much better film to be made here than this one.
