Worst movie in history

Ok, i don’t know how to put this in words. The second worst movie I’ve ever seen is about 100 times better than this abomination. Having studied how hurricanes work, I don’t know how it’s possible to represent a hurricane in such a horrible, unearthly manner. I guess the only saving grace is there was some decent action in the mix. However, I’ve seen pre-schoolers who have better acting skills than these misfits. Worst special effects in a movie I’ve ever witnessed and it’s not even close! Don’t watch this crap for the love of god!

Not suited for kids under 12

It was a pretty good show. It was funny and entertaining. There were a couple of scary parts and a few violent parts and some swearing that isn't documented anywhere. I watched it with my 10 year old son and thats what he told me after it was over.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
