Go watch Twister instead
22 December 2014 | by TheFilmGuy1See all my reviews

Quick story time. Twister was a film I watched as a very young kid, and I watched it over and over. Probably over 100 times. It holds a place in my heart to this day. It's not perfect, but it's fun. I think it also made me interested in storms and tornado's and rainy weather in general. So with that in mind, I was excited to watch this. I knew it probably wouldn't be a masterpiece, but I liked the idea of Twister as a found footage movie. But sadly I was disappointed. And I apologize for all the Twister comparisons that will be coming, but I have to do it.

Into The Storm is a film that has ideas that worked, but is mostly made up of silly, cheesy moments and really poorly written and cliché characters and drama. You look at Twister and you have the interesting relationship between Bill Paxtons character and Helen Hunt. They are divorced, but tornado chasing reignites their spark. But here, you get your typical father who wants to rescue his son, woman with a small kid at home, and all the other boring, one dimensional characters. So when there's drama, I kind of felt myself just watching without being invested. The only person I felt a little twang of sadness for was the victim of the "fire tornado", but that was short-lived. It's just full of boring characters that you can barely remember AS your watching, so good luck remembering them the day after you watched the movie. Twister has characters like Philip Seymore Hoffmans character who is eccentric in the best of ways, where as Into The Storm has... two drunken hillbillys that we are supposed to feel for and like cause... they are the "innocently dumb" kind of hicks you see in movies only. You get the idea.

Effects wise, I couldn't help but keep thinking about how good Twister looks to this day, and how it could probably hold it's own against this film. Perhaps this film had a larger scale, since it wrecks a town instead of emptier farm land, but some CGI left me disappointed. I also felt that Twister got the behavior of tornado's a little bit better. Twister is far from realistic, but Into The Storm had some eye roll worthy moments with how sudden the storms appear and disappear and come right for our protagonists. There are also some scenes that might work as an idea, but when executed are more cheesy than good. There's a moment at the end that I won't spoil, but it involves seeing the "heavenly light" above the tornado, and while it's a cool visual, it just doesn't work in a way I would like it to. But things like the massive tornado, the fire tornado, and some of the destruction did satisfy the part of me that just wanted to see some tornadoes destroy crap.

I personally will still stick with Twister. It's got waaaaay better characters, and just is a tighter film. A lot of people hate on it, but it's actually pretty fun and enjoyable. This, on the other hand, is weak. It's feels like a weaker, found footage movie version of Twister, mixed with Christian film level acting and writing. It's not that I didn't enjoy it, I just wanted more. Is it worth a watch for people who want to see some cool tornadoes and storms? Yeah I guess, but even then you still might be let down. Don't expect much, and you might like it.
