Into the Storm is an American disaster film. 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.Wikipedia
Into the Storm Reviews
Watch the movie only if you are a fan of meaningless disaster flicks. We have another suggestion: go easy on the soft drinks with this one. Though the movie is just 90 minutes long, but all the rain and water will definitely not help. Better safe than sorry, no?
Barns and buildings, trucks, buses, cars (no cow this time) are sucked into the feverishly spinning cyclone’s mouth till the screen transforms into a kinetic explosion of environmental fury.Some of these frantic images coupled with exceptional detail to sound, especially the waltz of the planes and the blazing tornado are truly spectacular and salvage Into The Storm from being a complete (since we’re on the subject) disaster.
'Into The Storm' is all about the spectacle of destruction...
If you venture into this film, enjoy the visual effects and leave the slender story alone.
The point of The Hundred-Foot Journey is to give the viewer a tasting menu that covers everything from heartwarming home cooking to molecular gastronomy (which according to this film is just strange-looking, soulless food rather than the crazy, magical experience that the cuisine actually offers when it's done expertly). However, without Mirren and Puri to keep things fresh, The Hundred-Foot Journey ends up feeling like a banquet made of leftovers that's going on for entirely too long.
Director Steven Quale seems to have not taken this subject seriously as the frivolous last scene mars the impact reminding you that there is no story, but what you are experiencing is just a fictional masterpiece.The film definitely merits a viewing.
A film with potential, not all of which is fulfilled...the film for everyone who enjoys end-of-the-world movies. The visuals are noteworthy, albeit criminally underused. Additionally, Into the Storm tries to do something unconventional with a tried-and-tested premise and succeeds to an extent.
The movie works best when it forays bravely into the tornado, conjuring up suitably awe-inspiring acts of devastation, and is at its most tedious when it tries to establish emotional connections with its characters, including Richard Amritage’s suspiciously buff school vice-principal and Sarah Wayne Callies’s anxious single mother and weather scientist.
Nature’s fury dished out for the sake of satiating guilty pleasures
