The New Year will bring new movies to the box office. Among these, is Category 5 with Melissa Bolona, an edgy action thriller with a promising cast and story-line.
Category 5 follows a meteorologist and treasure agent as the two attempt to stop a heist amid a category five hurricane. A natural disaster can bring out the best, and the worst, in humanity. And just as some people prepare to flee a potentially deadly storm, a group of thieves conspire to get rich quickly by breaking into a Mint Facility and stealing newly printed money. The threat of a hurricane and the chaos of evacuation provide the perfect cover for the thieves- as well as potential danger. However, things will likely not go according to plan as the last two people in town will be trying to prevent the robbery.
The film promises action and suspense of the heist, a potentially deadly storm and a couple of unlikely heroes.
