So I'm trying to remember the name of a movie that I watched back maybe 10 years ago or more. The major details I remember about this film are

  1. The girl in the film had different coloured hair

  2. There was weather control as a plot point .

  3. I believe the main protagonist was really good at using computers.

  4. The primary antagonists seemed to be a government agency and eventually threaten the protagonists mother.

  5. I believe the film was poorly received.

  6. It was live-action.

  7. The main character was a young adult as was the female he eventually met.

I don't know if I just hallucinated this movie but I swear it exists and it's not just me merging multiple movies into one.

  • Hi, welcome to SF&F! Was this a live-action movie or animated? Please check out the other suggestions for story-id questions and edit in any more details you recall. – DavidW Nov 4 '19 at 5:09

  • I am petty sure my box of 64 crayons has exactly none that are labeled "different color." Can you edit your question to be more detailed? :) Also: welcome to SFF! – Lexible Nov 4 '19 at 5:57
  • Maybe it is "scott pilgrim vs the world" it matches 1, 2 and 7 – someoneuseless Nov 4 '19 at 6:16

    By "different coloured hair", do you mean some of her hair was one colour and some was another? (I think this is an English problem - the native speakers like me are interpreting it as meaning "hair of a single colour that is different to..." and then puzzling over what it is different to. – Martin Bonner supports Monica Nov 4 '19 at 10:49

After some more searching I found the movie and maybe it should have stayed buried in the deepest recesses of my mind but in case anyone was wondering the movie was called "Storm Watch" or it also went by the name "Code Hunter"

America's best player is being pulled in to the ultimate cyber-terror. The game's mastermind has stolen his identity, put him on the FBI's Most Wanted List, and is blackmailing him to take a part in a real twisted plan of world destruction. With just hours left, can the code be broken to save the world from total annihilation?

The summary from the film's Wikipedia entry mentions the weather control:

torm Watch is a 2002 American science fiction film, directed by Terry Cunningham and starring Adrian Paul and Bai Ling. The music was composed by Sean Murray. The film centers on a protagonist who plays a virtual reality online game, which suddenly turns into a race against time to stop a weather satellite from destroying the world. The film was released on DVD and VHS under the title Code Hunter.

Are you sure it was a movie, and not a series? Because it sounds like the episode of Gene Rodeenberry's Andromeda, where Beka Valentine reveals that she can change her hair color, and where she complains about how she "hates weather".

  • I'm afraid it was definitely a movie. I had a DVD of it and it was definitely a feature length film. – CriticalImpact Nov 4 '19 at 22:20
