While the special effects are clearly the star of this masterwork, the storyline itself, although predictable, is crisp and full of heart.

Holds up against the noisy, busy, idiotically-scripted movies of today for all sorts of reasons [but] that does not excuse it from being a noisy, busy, idiotically-scripted movie in its own right.

Even more than with most of Michael Crichton's concoctions, this one conveys the overwhelming impression of a mechanical entertainment, a very high concept in which the characters and their problems seem like utterly arbitrary creations.

The action starts in the opening frame and never lets up.

It may not be fashionable to like Twister, but darn if it isn't an entertaining electro-shock of action cinema.

Surely the only movie to ever suggest a dumbed-down His Girl Friday, Road Runner cartoon, and The Abyss simultaneously

When it sticks to kinetically portraying the sheer oddness of the tornadic phenomenon, Twister is a breeze. When it tries to recreate Hawks, it falls gracelessly from the green sky.

The plot is thin and the characters are shallow. But who cares! The picture and sound are knockouts.

Twister isn't the brilliant machine that Speed was, but it often packs a comparable wallop.

Effects apart, this is dire: predictable, clichéd, sloppily written, pitifully performed and surprisingly short of real shocks and suspense.

I am going to recommend Twister for three reasons.

Ugh. Not even a passable popcorn pic, I'm afraid.

Special-effects highlight this Jan DeBont-directed blockbuster that's ruined by cliched plotting and irritating characters.

About as much fun as watching a weather report.

An excellent example of what the Hollywood F/X blockbuster has become -- all show and very little substance.

Formulaic writing is more than made up for by awesome visceral thrills.
