Into The Storm (2014)
Critic Consensus: Clumsily scripted and populated with forgettable characters, Into the Storm has little to offer beyond its admittedly thrilling special effects.

Critic Reviews for Into The Storm
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.
"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.
Audience Reviews for Into The Storm
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.
A creature feature, strictly B movie stuff back in the day, though aided considerably by modern day tech which renders the monster's attacks pretty dramatically. The characters? Only introduced so that we can guess as to who will live or ...
So much potential, and taglines like 'Twister cranked up to 11!' had my attention, but this one plays a lot like a SyFy movie, but with much better CGI (and not much better acting quality). I really never felt invested in any of the characters, and there's barely a plot to speak of. Sure, there isn't much to a disaster movie, but even 'Twister' had a story and characters you cared about. 18 years its senior and it's still THE tornado movie you should be watching. Pass on this one until it hits Redbox!
