WE GOT A VORTEX!
By The Movie Guy
The film opens with two subplots. We see the world's worse storm chasers as they haven't been able to film a storm in a year. Running out of funds, they have a chance for one last shoot. While everyone is converging on Riverside, our crew heads to Silverton. In Silverton we see the everyday people being interviewed for a 25 year time capsule at graduation time.
This isn't too hard to figure out as the goal of the storm chaser is to film the eye of an EF-infinity tornado, but in this case they must also warn the town folks that regular storm shelters are going to be ineffective against what is headed their way.
The storm chasers drive two vehicles. The armor piercing proof Titus which uses gallons per mile...and a blue stretch van that might as well be a target. Much of the film is shown through the annoying hand held camera, a cheap way to build character and make me dislike the film. The storm sequences were done rather well. The heavy bass sound vibrated the floor for an added effect. The storm scenes kept the intensity factor high for a long time. Special effects better than the script and actors.
Worth a view if you don't mind watching some home movies too.

7.5 out of 10
By Bettina Sipe
I have been a fan of tornadoes for a long time. I thought this movie was pretty good, except for a few things. At some points, the acting isn't great and the dialogue can be a little cheesy, such as "This is the largest storm that's ever been!". I also thought that the movie could have been longer. But the special effects are incredible and the tornadoes are amazing!
I also like the little references and similarities to Twister from 1996, which include the multiple vorticies encircling the cast, the tornado in the beginning taking place at night and is barely seen, the large F-5 tornado at the end, and one that I missed the first couple times I watched it: when the view changes from the news feed of the two massive tornadoes converging, and after Pete says, "This is the largest tornado I've ever seen," and when it shows the tornado tossing debris ahead of them, you can see a fake cow come flying off of the roof of what I assume is a dairy product manufacturing building. However, nothing will ever be better than Twister.
I give Into the Storm about a 7.5 out of 10.

Favorite Natural Disaster Movies!
By Tierra A. Drollinger
Humor, suspense, and a good morale makes this movie one of my all-time favorite natural disaster movies! Love the actors/actresses! Very good watch! Only one major cussword so parents beware.
