Where were the tornadoes?
14 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a 45 minute long movie, I was starting to get worried as the time ticked by and ticked by and all we saw were trucks driving and people chatting and I wanted to see Tornadoes on the big screen.

When you finally "do" see the tornado, it only lasts about 10 seconds then it's done and we are back to Bill Paxton's grizzled monotone voice going on about the disappointment of the poor storm chasers (or the viewers?).

I realize that these IMAX movies try to be educational and such (God forbid they make an IMAX movie that's for entertainment-purposes only) so they try to integrate some sort of "research" aspect into a show, but let's face it; "nobody cares about the storm chasers". If we had 2 hours to waste on that kind of filler, it would be more palatable. But for a 45 minute movie?

If you want to see tornadoes, you will have much more luck Googling "Tornadoes" and watching them on YouTube.

This movie was a huge disappointment.
