Worth watching but nothing exceptional
16 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw Cloud Chasers(or Super Storm) with no expectations or any idea of how it was going to turn out. Overall I found it to be reasonably good. The film does look good, with beautiful scenery and focused photography. The editing is nothing mind-blowing but not bad. The effects are not the slapdash ones I was fearing, again they are not enough to blow you away but they do exude a sense of menace. Apart from occasional over-acting from the male leads, the acting is better than average as well. On the debit side, I did feel as though there was too much romance and not enough disaster. The disaster scenes are quite tense, but the romantic scenes are not as convincing. By all means not as overly-sentimental or as clichéd as it could've been, but I never fully believed in it and felt there was too much of a focus on it. The script is not terrible, but I did get the sense that the actors could have had more to work from, structurally the script while not stilted or aimless like some disaster movies I've seen have been seemed a little thin and the dubbing was poor sometimes not making enough sense. The story is a good idea and starts well but has moments where it is rather contrived, while the direction is a little flat and the characters while not annoying in need of more development. All in all, worth a watch but I only partially recommend it. 5/10 Bethany Cox
