A natural disaster movie that is just really awesome, although the plot is very thin, it is a very fun movie, if you are looking for a great tornado movie that is better than Into the Storm, this movie is for you!

A meh film at its most meh, Twister is at times funny, interesting, action packed, and fun. But mostly, it's a dull story about a decent premise. The stars here are the twisters themselves, but with 18 year old graphics, it still stands up as pretty good.

A tornado chasers dream film, with a few yeah right scenes.

Compelled by the concept with its attracting visual effects, it turns out it wasn't what I'd expected when I thought it was a disaster film but it's only a small thrill ride with good performances, eyes-popping visual effects, and the delivered thrills from the combo of "Speed" director and "Jurassic Park" producer were reduced to a few. (B+)

I love this movie. The special effects are amazing. Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton make a great acting team.

Twister provides cool effects but a flat story/characters. The tornado scenes are intense and fun to watch (if at times ludicrous). The human drama element just isn't that interesting though, and we just don't care about these people. It's a terribly average movie, the acting is fine, the script is decent, the story is functional. But when you don't really care about the people in these fire situations, the tension is significantly toned down. This is a fun movie to watch if you have nothing to do. You won't regret seeing it, but you'll step away struggling to remember the details of the plot other than "a tornado destroys everything". Twister gets 2.5/5 stars (C+).

By far one of my favorite movies of all time! If you like disaster movies you will love this movie! Great plot and great effects for its time. Definitely doesn't deserve the amount of hate and criticism it got here on Rotten Tomatoes! Twister is without a doubt, a classic!

An extremely well done natural disaster movie that perfectly balances the human storyline with the twister one.

A frantic, soulless mess that even a Huge Jackedman can save.

As is the case with every effects driven movie ever made, Twister has not aged well because it lacks every sense of realism, dread, and tension, while also completely lacking a decent script with three dimensional characters. This is a bland disaster flick that will only continue to fade with time until it has reached complete and utter obscurity.

Mid-90s action thriller, this is one of those movies that you might watch when it is on, but probably wouldn't go looking for.
based around the exploits of storm-chasers (those lunatics who actually go looking for tornadoes), with the plot following an estranged couple (post Aliens Bill Paxton, and Helen Hunt) who rekindle their interest in each other while trying to get their new instrument - which will, hopefully, allow them to better understand how tornadoes work - into the path of a tornado.

Fun and entertaining scenes with tornadoes but story is a bit silly.

this movie has good tornado effects, whenever they are chasing tornadoes its exciting, but the characters are annoying (its mostly bill paxton) and the dialouge and story lack.
