    Into the Storm is as straightforward a disaster film as you're likely to find.

    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.

    The film barely services the main characters and their arcs, so there's really no room for the sort of delicate etching needed to make supporting characters live and breathe. The film is at its best when it embraces the goofy nature of disaster films in general, and when it gives the audience the red meat it craves so desperately.

    As impressive as the effects can be, as effective as the blend of TV news helicopter POV shots, security camera footage, cell-phone video and storm chaser images mimicked here turn out, the human stories are given short shrift in this “spend our budget on effects” action picture.

    Too cartoonish to be cathartic, and too ghoulish to be honest fun, Into the Storm is mostly a somewhat uncomfortable sit enlivened by occasional hilariousness.

    Hollywood's latest entry in that tried-and-true genre, the disaster movie, is . . . well, it's like . . . a totally gnarly roller-coaster ride!

    Even within the spinning cylinder of mediocrity that is Into The Storm, there are some minor pleasures to be had. Those are mostly found in Walsh, who is probably best known for comedic supporting turns, but makes the most with what is nearly a leading man part here.

But if you are not looking for those this, this movie is very exciting, it has great special effects, is very realistic and you are going to really feel attached to the characters. This is the most intense storm film ever made, it has destruction everywhere and the first person camera is really perfect for it. Watch it if you don't want to see a great story or awesome characters, but a really suspenseful, intense and exciting film. Expand

What you just need to know is that the actors feel like they don't know how to act at all. Confusing storyline... tornado here, tornado there, maybe add some sharks to make it interesting?

    CGI is good though. Hype was good due to a lot of marketing, I guess. I regret buying a ticket for this.
