Metal Tornado

I am incapable of watching a film starring Lou Diamond Phillips without thinking, “La-la-la-la-la Bamba!”

Even when he’s playing a scientist, my brain goes all wonky and I think, “se necessita te poca de gracia…”

True to the SyFy formula, Phillips plays a single dad tasked with saving the world after his company’s attempt to harness solar power goes awry and creates a “Metal Tornado” that sucks up anything metal in it’s path…cars, trailers, chainsaws…It’s sounds like it would be cool, but it was actually boring as fuck. No one dies in a really cool way, even the lumberjack who loses his chainsaw. The five year old was totally nonplussed by the whole thing. Don’t bother with watching this one.
