Superb Science Fiction With Strong Characterizations
10 August 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

From director Stephen R. Monroe, Ice Twisters is that rare science fiction television movie that is both intelligent and extraordinarily well done. The production values are above average and the special effects quite good in this film. The script is sharp and insightful, focusing as much on characterizations as it does on horrific disaster. Some sequences are particularly unrelenting in their horror and may deeply disturb those unaccustomed to such intense realism. Mark Moses shines in the role of Charlie and it's truly some of his best work in years. Camille Sullivan is a standout in the supporting cast and her performance is nothing less than superb. This is an unusually stunning film in this genre and is ultimately quite satisfying indeed.
