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.

Unfortunately, long before the storm has blown itself out, the plot has long since come apart.

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

Stick with Twister.

"Hold on!", says everyone to everyone, which goes more or less without saying. "I've never seen anything like this!", they also repeat ad nauseam. You may be tempted to disagree.

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.

Maybe we do deserve another Twister, but to showcase the advances in effects since you really need a bigger budget than this.

The destruction and carnage is presented with verve and flair, making this a fine example of tornado porn.
August 8, 2014
A visually stunning disaster-thriller that ultimately feels cheap with its perverse take on death and gratitude.

If weak plotting isn't a big concern, then Into the Storm may be right up your tornado alley.

Have we ever before seen such big-ticket escapist entertainment about the awesomeness of something that so recently killed so many of us? Doesn't it usually take longer before everyone's eager for candy spun from trauma?

Don't get me wrong, I'm as willing to check my brain at the door and sumbit to an idiotic late-summer spectacle as the next person. But this funnel-cloud fiasco tries to suck up everything in its path, and just winds up sucking.

A more sophisticated version of "Sharknado."
August 8, 2014
The complete lack of interesting characters and almost no narrative at all makes for a film that's hollow. The storm has more personality than the people who flee from it.
August 8, 2014
What we're here for is the special effects, and those are just fine, from a wind tunnel of fire to a car lot of vehicles tossed up into the air like ping pong balls.
August 8, 2014
It's all very, very silly - not to mention off-puttingly earnest.
August 8, 2014
"Into the Storm" features laughable dialogue, far-fetched situations, and generic characters played by actors who almost look like more famous stars. I still had a blast; and if you lower your resistance, you may too.
August 8, 2014
As disaster movies go, "Into the Storm" is fairly disastrous itself.
August 8, 2014
Into the Storm has some seriously impressive, wicked special effects. Its rapid pace and thundering sound effects quite effectively ram you, wide-eyed, jaw agape, against your seat back. It has nothing else.

It's no spoiler to reveal that these tornadoes just happen to be the biggest storms that ever were, and watching them chew up buildings like they were so many corn bread muffins can't help but be involving.
