Into The Storm (2014), from the trailer, seemed like nothing more than a Twister (1996) ripoff with a found footage chaser. And it sort of is. But that does not mean this a bad film by any means. In fact, it picks up where Twister has dated itself (still a kick ass flick).

I had a lot of fun time watching Into The Storm. This is exactly what you want in a disaster picture (although, a cameo from Bill Paxton would have been nice). It won’t win any Oscars but that’s not it’s purpose. Movies of this ilk are here to make us remember how cool movies can be when logic gives way to suspension of disbelief. Shut off your brain for a near perfect 1 hour 29 min runtime and have yourself some fun. But remember, in real life, PUT DOWN THE CAMERA AND RUN! Enjoy.
