First and most importantly it must be noted that no cows were harmed in the making of this film.
It would be easy to dismiss "Into The Storm" as formulamatic and cliche. It is a disaster
movie and somehow the writers have to try and make you care about the characters in two
minute "life briefings" before they unleash the mayhem and special effects.
So one could critique it purely on what techniques they used to get us to care about the
actors. Most in this movie are worn out. There is one scene though which is truly good
drama. If you are a parent bring kleenex.
But, this is a Disaster Movie, we don't care about no stinkin drama. Give us the special
effects! Into The Storm delivers. If you have ever wondered what a storm chaser would
see just before everything went terribly wrong, sit tight, it will not disappoint.
Sure a few things were over the top but mostly I sat in my seat thinking or saying things like
Whoa! Dang! Holy $!#! That is what a disaster movie should make you do.
Frankly, this is a movie to see twice. Once on the big screen for the special effects. (WOW)
Then when it comes out on video/DVD, get together with your snarkiest friends, add libation and
If you have endured a weather disaster like tornado or hurricane and still feel some post
event trauma do not see this movie.
If you take weather, science and yourself too seriously, don't see this movie. Stick to the
Weather Channel to get hard weather science... What? Stop that.
However, if you like to see thrilling special effects, total destruction and mayhem from the
safety of a theater, this is a fun movie.
Grade if it were a drama; C- . As a disaster movie; A+ and a smiley face.
