When Jo, Bill and Melissa set out on a single lane gravel road across a dam to chase a "twin tornado", the camera angle cuts to a shot looking back over their shoulders out the left hand side of the car. From that angle, they're on a two lane highway with traffic going the other way. See more »
"Twister" is definitely a film of high energy. I enjoyed it on a lot of levels. The special-effects are great although some look fake, but this was definitely one of the most original films of '96 and today. Not too many films about tornadoes are made. Although it has alot of formula and cliches, I thought the filmmakers and script-writers did a great job with the material.(there's not much you with tornadoes) I also did hate the way they got rid of Jamie Gertz' character. The film is exciting and the characters are interesting. This film is definitely a must-see.
