Trivia

When watching the news in the hotel room right before the large hail storm begins, the "local" broadcast features anchorman Steve Garagiola and weatherman Chuck Gaidica. These two are the real anchorman and weatherman for WDIV (NBC affiliate Channel 4 in Detroit, Michigan), though the film clearly takes place in Oklahoma. See more »

Goofs

When the first tornado to hit the Silverton area forms, Allison waits until it is on the ground for several minutes before calling in the tornado warning. Any professional storm chaser would have called the warning in right when the wall cloud formed, or at the very least at the first sign of the funnel as public safety would have been more important to them than observations or photos/videos.

Worth it just for the Tornado scenes.
5 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Into the Storm was not a movie I had a lot of expectations for. I just wanted to have fun seeing huge tornadoes destroying everything in their path. And that's what I got for the most part in this movie. The first 15 minutes of this movie was so bad, the dialogue was atrocious, the characters were annoying and the writing was completely abysmal. But as the movie starts to show more of the tornadoes, it got really fun really quick. the movie got so much better.

One of the best aspects of this movie is how close you really get into the tornadoes. You go inside it and it looks frightening and beautiful at the same time. The visuals look amazing when you're in the movie theater. This is definitely a movie that should be seen in your nearest theater, because it was such an experience seeing the tornadoes, hearing the train-like noise when a tornadoes comes barreling towards the cities and cars. It's just so awesome.

One of the weakest aspects of this movie are the characters, we just don't care what happens to them in the movie. But the tornadoes are terrific and they keep coming on at you every twenty minutes or so for two hours. Now this can be a little tiresome, but "Into the Storm" does stop itself just in time before it completely overstays its welcome.

In the end, it's not a very good movie by any stretch of the imagination. Again, this is the film that one will either like as a guilty pleasure, like me, or you won't care for it at all. And even if you do like the movie, there is still one big lapse in the whole thing that you realize at the end. If tornadoes really did show up as often as they do in the movie in the same general area, there would be nothing left standing in the Midwest anymore. It would all be leveled.
