Into The Storm (2014)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Clumsily scripted and populated with forgettable characters, Into the Storm has little to offer beyond its admittedly thrilling special effects.

Though [it] is lacking in interesting characters, it makes up for it with fun disaster movie fodder and great effects.

If the visual effects in "Into the Storm" were matched with a better screenplay, we'd be talking about a box office juggernaut. As it stands, I would recommend an Irwin Allen disaster flick for better acting.

The fun grinds to a halt whenever the skies brighten and the wind calms.

(Will) blow out of town as quickly as it came.

So much time is spent justifying the presence of all these cameras that no one bothered to create a single character worth rooting for.

Audience Reviews for Into The Storm

A creature feature, strictly B movie stuff back in the day, though aided considerably by modern day tech which renders the monster's attacks pretty dramatically.
The characters? Only introduced so that we can guess as to who will live or ...

So much potential, and taglines like 'Twister cranked up to 11!' had my attention, but this one plays a lot like a SyFy movie, but with much better CGI (and not much better acting quality). I really never felt invested in any of the characters, and there's barely a plot to speak of. Sure, there isn't much to a disaster movie, but even 'Twister' had a story and characters you cared about. 18 years its senior and it's still THE tornado movie you should be watching. Pass on this one until it hits Redbox!

Where have all the good disaster films gone? "Into The Storm" is the first film in a long time to attempt this formula, and while the first ten to twenty minutes of this film are utter garbage, the film slowly but surely becomes one hell of an intense action ride that you just have to admit you had fun with. The dialogue is very by-the-numbers and the characters are all very stereotypical, but this film somehow in it's final climax, made me care for everything that was happening to every character. From something that started out as lame and forgetful, became this story of redemption and many characters have great character arch's. The destruction and CGI of the tornadoes in this film are far more impressive than one would expect from this type of film and I admired that. "Into the Storm" will not be remembered for it's story, but as a film that got more and more entertaining as it went on. I've never had this big of a 180* turn happen to me in a while and it felt refreshing. Still, this is in no way a great film. I would watch all the action scenes over and over again, but nothing else really stands out. It is a mediocre film with awesome adrenaline fuelled action!
