Initially I thought this was better than Impact and Meteor but I was frightfully wrong. The science in the other two were bad but at least the acting was somewhat good. The secondary storylines were superfluous but at least they didn't distract from the main story.
The problem with the The Storm is there was no main story line. They took a twenty minute story and ran it out to four hours of television and commercials. After a promising start the second part quickly turn to goo as Dr. Kirk finds out everyone is in cahoots. From that point on the show was unwatchable.
As for the ending. The General shoots himself, Terrell gets shot and killed, and Dr. Hoffman and his assistant who was shot are going to the hospital. Of course Hoffman in his incompetence was responsible for killing thousands of people but we'll forget that for the time being. They went for the two minute great feeling ending.
Overall a big disappointment. People are getting paid a lot of money to write this stuff. Really! Unbelievable... Thanks for reading...moreless
