An oil refinery explosion in a midwestern town afflicted by a long summer drought is the center of intrigue for this bad excuse for a disaster film. The plot surrounds itself with the inhabitants of a hospital threatened by the fire. A good cast but unintentionally funny script make this
film very difficult to sit through. This is the fifth poorly made disaster film for Fonda, whose previous nonhits were ROLLER-COASTER; TENTACLES; SWARM; and METEOR.
