Storm Catcher is a 1999 thriller movie. It was directed by Anthony Hickox and stars Dolph Lundgren and Mystro Clark. It tells the story of a renegade general who plans to bomb Washington with a new jet called the Storm Catcher.

Plot[edit]

Flanked by buddy Sparks Johnson (Mystro Clark) on the ground, and co-pilot Lucas (John Pennell) in the air, Major Jack Holloway (Dolph Lundgren) mans Uncle Sam's top-secret Phoenix fighter jet.

While Holloway's mentor, General William Jacobs (Robert Miano), keeps FBI agents Lock (Anthony Hickox) and Load (Kimberly Davies) from snooping into his pet project, Holloway and Sparks enjoy some R&R with Holloway's wife Jessica (Kylie Bax) and daughter Nicole (Yvonne Zima).

It turns out Lucas is an operative for an intra-military right-wing group and, temporarily assuming Holloway's identity, he steals the Phoenix. Branded a pariah, Holloway not only gets court-martialed but he's also nearly obliterated when his prison transport is ambushed.

Holloway, determined to clear his name, escapes. After he touches base with his family, extremist soldiers shoot Jessica and later kidnap Nicole.

No sooner does Sparks convince Lock and Load of Holloway's innocence than Lucas guns them down and kidnaps Sparks. Jacobs tells Holloway that if he ever wants to see Nicole alive again, Holloway must bomb the White House.
