This film follows a group of scientists as they chase down storms. Originally an IMAX feature, the cinematography and quality of sound are much higher than the normal documentary. Veteran IMAX director Greg MacGillviray is at the helm on this production as it bunkers down to study and admire tornadoes, thunderstorms, and Hurricane Emily; the last of which is investigated while in an airplane flying through the middle of the storm. Stephan Judson narrates. ~ Ed Atkinson, Rovi
