Trivia

"Smoke'n Bob's" Hot Dog cart, seen in one of the town scenes, is a dead giveaway for the Winnipeg shooting location. Also recognizable: the Garry Theatre. See more »

Goofs

The notion of opening windows when a tornado approaches went out with the Eighties. There is no way a tornado expert like Dr. Arledge would be advising to do such a thing in 2002. See more »

Needed more realism
17 November 2002 | by See all my reviews



Made-for-TV movie TORNADO WARNING and its sister film produced for the same network and in the same year, ATOMIC TWISTER (2002), share identical special effects and cinematography. Both have one "stand out" female breast scene to help with youth marketing. Both contain stealth tornados that pop down in partly sunny skies and dissolve equally as quick.

Real tornados are born inside the rather specific storm cells produced by clashes of warm air masses and cold fronts. Severe thunder and lightning surround the funnel clouds whirling down from inside the DARK storm clouds.

These blue sky, lightning-free stealth twisters blowing down barns but unable to release drying laundry from a clothsline a few feet away (TORNADO WARNING) suffer from a lack of realism.
