How I Got Suckered into Renting This on Amazon the Day it Landed on VOD: weather-related action movies are my jam ("Hard Rain", "The Hurricane Heist", uh...there was a lot of rain in "Universal Soldier"? That last fight on the beach in "Point Break"?) and I'm not proud of this necessarily but Mel Gibson can still be a vital force of nature himself worth seeking out (see "Blood Father", "Get the Gringo" and "Dragged Across Concrete" for similar grindhouse fare he's chomped down on hard over the past decade).
The Force of Nature (TFON) is a group of totem warriors of the Folk Nation. Most members of WON are of Native American descent, but a large minority are not They are also primarily young adults; only two are over the age of twenty-five. TFON warriors believe that man's ability to manipulate the forces of nature has allowed them to incorporate their spirit-guides (which usually take the forms of animals in dreams and folklore) into their physical being. They make themselves over in the images of their dreams and beliefs, despite the fact that this brands them as fanatics, even among other Native Americans. Orthodox adherents of Native American religion feel that there is something unnatural about the entire idea, and most statics think of them as freaks, but both are wrong. 041b061a72
