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. ”

You’d think everyone would try and avoid a tornado. Why wouldn’t you? Its a gigantic death wind after all, with no way to combat it. Most people would hide upon seeing a tornado. Not stormchasers however. Storm Chasers love to be up close and personal with these monstrosities. As do rednecks.

 

Pete (Matt Walsh) is a storm chaser. His mission is to be inside the eye of a tornado. to accomplish this, He’s enlisted the help of a Allison (Sarah Wayne Callies), and a camera crew. He’s also built himself a Truck capable of withstanding a Tornado, called Titus.

In Silverton, a small town, some freak events are happening. Tornadoes are forming without warning and disappearing just as suddenly. Unfortunately for Gary (Richard Armitage), the Vice Principal of Silverton High School,  these events are occurring closer and closer to a graduation ceremony. To top it all off, his older son Donnie has gone off galavanting, while he supposed to be helping out with the camera work. The graduation ceremony starts, and surprise surprise, the tornado hits soon after. This causes the abandoned mill in which donnie was fooling around with Katelyn, to collapse, getting them stuck under some rubble. Will Gary be able to rescue his son?

 

Into the storm takes quite a bit of time to get going. It spends too much time telling us about the characters, who aren’t really interesting. I can understand building an emotional quotient, but that doesn’t work when the characters are so painfully one dimensional. Still, most of the actors have done a pretty decent job, given the limited characters they had to work with. However, all this is forgotten once Into The Storm takes out its party trick : The Tornadoes. These death winds are really quite thrilling to look at, and one can’t help being stunned by the awesome CGI in this movie. If you’ve nothing else to do this weekend, then Into the Storm is decent way to pass the time.
