Movie Info

In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot. Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, "Into the Storm" throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.

  • Most inexplicable, yet potent, are the shots that look down on the devastation from on high, implicitly reducing the entire cast to extras in a movie directed by God.

  • What we've got here is somewhere between Twister and one of those storm-chaser reality shows, except Jan de Bont made Twister.

  • When the badass cyclones muscle into town, ripping up schools, banks and airports, the film is fairly fun. Sadly, everything else about it is, well, a bit of a disaster.

  • The destruction and carnage is presented with verve and flair, making this a fine example of tornado porn.

    Aug 10, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A visually stunning disaster-thriller that ultimately feels cheap with its perverse take on death and gratitude.

    This movie tried so hard to interest me but you're going to know what's with disaster movies like this one.

    Pointless handheld camera device is just a poor excuse for poor writing and directing. A film with this type of budget shouldn't fall to such poor storytelling. the special effects couldn't save this one. Into the Storm plays out like Twister for a new generation but sadly they don't have the upcoming cast that boosted the film into a guilty pleasure at the cinema. This film struggles to maintain purpose or even a reason for the handheld footage. A simple film would have been a better result and might have saved the odd story beats within. 25/05/2019

    I enjoy natural disaster movies, and I thought this one was good. The first few minutes and the last 20 were the most intense.

    A cheesy disaster film, Into the Storm uses a found footage gimmick to try to create a visceral experience. And to some extent it succeeds, as the spectacle of the storm and its awesome destructive power transcends the screen. Some of the imagery is remarkably haunting, and a wonder to look at. But the story is garbage, and the characters are incredibly annoying. Additionally, the found footage conceit is completely ridiculous, making it hard to engage with the film. Yet as clumsy and amateurish as it is, Into the Storm delivers stunning visual effects that are riveting to watch.
