Towering tornadoes take centre-stage here as they cut through small towns in America like a hot knife through butter. A group of storm chasers and a few add-ons try to document the destruction.
: Pete Moore (Walsh) is obsessed with tornadoes and will take great risks to get the perfect shot. In fact, it wouldn't be too far from the truth to call him way beyond eccentric. With him is a meteorologist single mom Allison (Callies), who keeps in touch with her young daughter using video chat, when not chasing storms. The biggest name in the cast is Armitage, (last seen in the Hobbit films). Here, he plays Gary, Silverton High School's Vice Principal in the town where the action unfolds. His two estranged sons Trey (Kress) and Donnie (Deacon) have yet to come to terms with the passing of their mother who died two years ago. And so, the movie is essentially about running away from tornadoes, running towards them or taking shelter from tornadoes.
The few tender moments in the film are plain awkward and the nondescript cast is forgettable, except for Armitage, who puts in a decent show. But the camera work is pretty nifty and a few cautious asides are thrown referring to the climate change/global warming angle. However, you're not going to watch this for hidden references and double meanings. Special effects drive the film throughout and it doesn't drag.
We've seen disaster films involving extra-terrestrials, tsunamis and various other natural (destructive) phenomena in recent times. So, it's only fitting that we get a film that shows us the kind of devastation thundering tornadoes can wreak. While Twister (1996) was the last film of note to deal with this subject, Into the Storm utilises today's entire palette of VFX wizardry as well as plenty of first-person points-of-view shots to convey the same thrills, on a far more grandiose scale.
So, if you get your jollies watching houses, cars and even a bunch of passenger planes flung into the air like toys, you might like this.
Scott Lawrence who plays the Principal in the film was called "Obama" on the sets of the film. This was because of he resembled US President Barack Obama
Extras on set often broke out into song in between takes to raise the spirits of those who were wet/tired. A favorite amongst the extras was "Come Sail Away" by Styx
An open casting call was held in Michigan for the film
Bring on the bread and circuses. Into the Storm features laughable dialogue, far-fetched situations, and generic characters played by actors who almost look like more famous stars. I still had a blast; and if you lower your resistance, you may too.
