Fearless storm-chasers brave impossible odds in their quest to collect data on an unprecedented super-storm that unleashes multiple tornados on a small town as the terrified locals race for shelter. Richard Armitage (The Hobbit trilogy), Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead), and Matt Walsh star in this tense tale of Mother Nature's fury.~Jason Buchanan
Fake Storms: Real Conditions - drenched by rain, pummeled by winds, pelted by debris and yanked by wires - watch the cast re-create the effects of terrifying winds
Silly characters, mediocre acting, goofy screenplay scene wise but has some bizarrely fun “ special effects” and storm feel that can make for moments that are engaging , felt , and entertaining in a roller coaster way. This is the epitome of a “popcorn movie” and if you add in a big screen to watch it and a solid sound system it will give you a couple spins on a cheap thrill ride.
Into the Storm is a popcorn, disaster film. There is no getting around that. Popcorn films can be fun and Into the Storm is one of those films. What I liked about this film, they took the storm chasers craze that we see on TV and incorporated it into the film. I also liked how they had some of the film as Point of View and other parts as a regular film. The special effects were top notch and did not disappoint. The film is only 90 minutes so they did not try to stretch the film. They made it to the point. The one thing that did disappoint me and shocked me as well. The film was not in 3D. You think with the 3D craze they would have tried to capitalize. Otherwise the film is a solid B+ popcorn action film.
The acting is mediocre and the multiple plot lines are predictable that end in a cliff hanger style! How ever The visual effects more than make up for it in the scenes that people would watch this kind of movie for! If you have kids that are at that "I love tornados" age ( We all were at one point) then this will be thier favorite movie!
