Goofs

Several times during the movie, the brother is referred to as "Sheriff Saunders". The actor is wearing the uniform of a Washington State Trooper, and although the insignia on his epaulets are upside down (sign of a filmed in Canada movie) they indicate he holds the rank of Sergeant. A Sheriff is usually the chief law enforcement officer of a county and would not wear a Trooper's uniform. See more »

just about the stupidest movie ever
5 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a storm chaser, which means I'm usually avid for any sort of storm-disaster movie, no matter how stupid. But this one not only wasted the fifteen minutes I spent watching it, it's compelling me to waste yet more time writing this review. That's how strongly I feel about it.

In this day and age, with so many weather websites available, there's no excuse whatsoever for a writer not to go see what a tornado looks like on radar--clue: It's not a hurricane! And FYI, storms do not growl. Chasers and storm fans and TV watchers, oh my, do yourself a favor and rent Twister again instead.
