Into the Storm (2014) - Movie Rating - Trailer, Cast, Story - Desimartini.com

Verdict: Into The Storm is your typical disaster movie. But due to shoddy scripting and dull characters, it loses its essence in the turmoil caused by some glorious looking CGI tornadoes. You're better off skipping this one.

Plot: 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.

Into the Storm Review - The storm's come. But hardly hits you.Aug 9, 2014NewsSilverton is a small town where the population is lesser than the number of times tornado hits the place. It's primarily a disaster movie and delivers what we expect from one of that genre. A group of storm chasers are dying (almost literally) to document the biggest storm ever seen. Pete (Matt Wash) is heading the storm chasers. He equips himself with a giant tank like vehicle which he calls 'Titus', which he believes would be capable of the strongest of storms. He also has a team including two camera men, out of which one is an amateur (and scared) and one is a single mother Allison (Sarah Wayne Callies). Pete's dream of shooting inside the eye of the tornado gets accomplished and how!   Meanwhile, there's a graduation ceremony scheduled by Gary (Richard Armitage), Vice Principal of Silverton High School, and a strict, dissatisfied father whose sons are in charge of recording the ceremony so that it could be uploaded to YouTube in a week. His elder son Donnie is a futurist who's already working on a project (which he'd watch and cherish after 25 years) taking vox pop interviews of himself and whoever he meets. Donnie, on the day of the graduation ceremony sets out to help his crush Katelyn on a project submission and ends up being stuck underneath an abandoned mill, which is struck by one of the initial storms. This storm already topple down everything at the graduation ceremony before it makes way to the mill, by the way. Gary is desperately searching for Donnie to rescue him, and teams up with Allison and Pete during second hit of the storm. Between all these, there are a bunch of freaks who would do anything to make videos for their YouTube channel and comes across as mad men, laughing and playing while gigantic storms approach them.  Characters are shallow, dailogues are just ok and back ground score fine. The whole idea of trying to make the cinematography 'intelligent' by letting the audience see everything through a camera fails at certain points, and becomes lame at some other. Editing could have been better. Actors are good enough.    Best part of the movie, is undoubtedly the storm. Rains feel natural and animation job is brilliant. To me, the tornados came across as almost another being, with an angry, hurt, vengeance seeking soul. It's massive and highly destructive. The best scene in the movie is when Pete is inside the eye of the storm. It is almost magical, and awe-inspiring. The effort to bring on an emotional quotient and to pass on a message of 'live each moment to the fullest' doesn't really work.    It could have been a much bigger, deeper, better movie but limited budget and narrow story line makes it a one time watch. A decent one though.   Vivek S Nambiar Into the Storm Review - The storm's come. But hardly hits you. Aug 9, 2014
