Critic Reviews

  1. The miniseries (which concludes on Aug. 2) gets predictably political, thanks to its government-conspiracy-centric plot, but Storm doesn't give us enough of what we really want: awesome CGI tempests.
  2. The Storm is almost but not quite bad enough to be fun. Although Treat Williams is clearly having a great time, those of us in the audience are left feeling damp and more than a bit moldy.
  3. 30
    This type of show can overcome rote performances and filmmaking if its narrative is sufficiently brisk and surprising. Unfortunately, the conspiracy here is shadowy only in terms of the camerawork.
  4. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry
    The Halmi factory has a certain genius for packaging these kind of projects, built around terse titles and big concepts. If only they put as much effort into producing them, The Storm might amount to more than another soggy tempest in a teapot.
  5. New York Daily News
    Reviewed by: David Hinckley
    The two-night miniseries "The Storm," the latest production in NBC's summer of the apocalypse, suggests the network may be running out of creative ways to terminate life as we know it.

    Great story line but its very hard to get into the whole storm atmosphere with the constant horrible special effects.
