Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
A vulcanologist arrives at a countryside named Dante's Peak after a long dormant volcano, which has recently been named the second most desirable place to live in America, and discovers that Dante's Peak, may wake up at any moment.

Honey, it's Meg. I gotta go.
I'm going back.
Good, good, you'll be safe at the motel. I'll see you in the morning.
I won't be there.
What? Why? What are you saying?
I'm saying goodbye.
You know what? I can't compete with this. I don't even know where to start.
Wait, don't do this now, please.
Sooner or later it would have ended, we both know that. The funny thing is... I'm not that upset. What does that mean?

WHAT THE HELL IS EVERYONE'S PROBLEM WITH THIS FILM
Ever since this films release in 1996, its very title has become synonymous with Bad films. Its been labelled stupid, loud, dumb and every other thing you can think of. Whilst I admit that the script aint hot and there's no real story in the film, the action is great, the special effects are brilliant, the film moves fast and provides a slambang rocking good ride. Im sorry that more films like this are not made. I love this film. When i saw it at the theatre, i was blown away (no pun intended). Bill paxton does a good job in the lead (yeah people have said that he is dull and that they should have found someone with more charisma. PUHLLLEASSSEEE). I'll watch this film a thousand times between now and the day I die. And for all the geniuses out there who call this film Crap. I hope you all get swept up in a windstorm, I really do. GREAT JOB JAN DEBONT
