Critic Reviews for Hurricane

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

The storm blows fiercely but the love story doesn't match its power.

March 26, 2009 | Full Review…

Wet and windy, the sort of expensively foolish enterprise that suggests that everyone connected with it needs either a new agent or a legal guardian.

May 9, 2005 | Full Review…

Inferior redo of original Jon Hall spectacle; state of art effects for 1970s.

May 8, 2009 | Rating: 3/5

a terrible remake; a strong wind should have blown this production away before a foot of film was shot.

May 2, 2004 | Rating: 1/5
