Movie Review: Into The Storm

Into The Storm took what could've been a genuinely intriguing disaster movie and turned it into something perilously shallow. Sure, this was a good example of a film made purely to showcase awesome special effects with a simple plot concocted to hold it all together, but the story was just pure soap opera nonsense. The characters were a throwaway that it was laughable that the film even tried to infuse personality - mostly annoying - in them. Oh, and don't get me started with how most of them managed to outrun and survive a bunch of tornadoes. The actors were mostly bland, the script was ironically dry, and the found-footage approach felt more of a gimmick than anything else. Where the film did succeed was delivering spectacle, but if you look for anything else, you'd be sorely disappointed. Into The Storm was perfectly entertaining just for the tornadoes and nothing else. 4.5
