Did You Know?


In the trailer, the viewer is told that the heist is planned during the monstrous hurricane that is pushing 600 miles per hour. The Great Red Spot, a massive hurricane on Jupiter that can fit two Earths in it, is also a 600-mile-per-hour storm. See more »


The depiction and power of the eye wall is greatly exaggerated. The eye wall looks like a pyroclastic flow from a volcano and the edge of the eye wall annihilates anything in its path. The eye wall does not have the power to carry semi trucks away like a tornado as depicted in the film regardless of category. See more »

Hurricane Game? It embodies What Job Responsibility is. Hurricane is not the antagonist.
18 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is the perfect genre film of 2018 I believe. Rob Cohen made this morally recommended real disaster master piece. Any bad disaster film is just to show disaster game which does not focus on conflicts among human protagonist and antagonists. This category 5 hurricane is just a narrative device like zombies in George Romero's Dead series. True disaster film tales human conflicts under disaster not the master-like disastrous phenomena itself. We can say shark is not the antagonist of JAWS (1975) but the mayer and the entourage are the true antagonists in the human conflict. The Hurricane Heist mainly describes the heist conflict among the U.S. Treasury officers and corrrabped local police men during category 5 hurricane. Main drama is the Die Hard-like heist incident not the monster hurricane. I can say that Armageddon(1998), Deep Impact (1998), Twister (1996) are just disaster games rather than serious human conflicts. This hurricane is equal with fictional function of any monsters in filmmaking. All of them are not antagonists but devices to express human conflicts among human characters. Any defect of humanity is lack of drama. The Hurricane Heist makes us realise what true antagonist should be. Besides this important structural achievement, we also can not ignore clear cinematic refrain among tight sequences in the end of Act 2 to Act 3 which are chase scenes from the federal bank to the highway with category 5 hurricane threatens them from behind. The corrupted policemen and Perkins' decision to betray their duty, Will and Casey's decision to loyal to their duty are perfectly and consciously contrasted in the story structure. Decision making is the nature of plot and its embodies meaning of subtext in the entire cinematic expressions. Moreover, this decision making is finally refrained after the escape from the hurricane. The protagonists, Will and Casey don't make decision to steal the federal bank money when they can do it like the failed villains. This is the structure. The screen writer highly conscious about the plotting that express meaning of context clearly. I was really impressed with this quality work among other genre films in 2018! US film is the best of the bests! Disaster film should not be a disaster game. Its main focus and content must be human conflicts, not a conflict with narrative device.
