As a massive hurricane builds, criminals infiltrate a U.S. Mint facility. Their plan: to steal 600 million dollars and escape using a Category Five hurricane as cover.

Relatively, the film's visual effects (VFX) was not groundbreaking as “Twister 1996,” not silly as “Sharknado series,” not as preachy (on climate change) as “Geostorm 2017,” not as comical as “Into the Storm 2014.” As for the heist, not as good as the early “Die Hard 1988”. However, fusing the two subplots, it passed as an entertaining crime action thriller during a Cat. 5 hurricane disaster with lessor known but pretty good actors. If you are still game after the storm, watch the short “VFX reel” in “Special Features.”

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!
