Total nonsense but reasonably entertaining and surprisingly not as cheap as I thought it would be, 16 August 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I don't take pleasure in disliking most of the SyFy original movies, some are actually tolerable but there are others that are close to unwatchable. Space Twister is not one of the unwatchable ones, but I'd be lying if I said it was great. It doesn't look bad at all, the effects are reasonably good for SyFy, the scenery is nice and the photography is not too choppy either. The music is decent and fits the tone of the film well, while the acting is better than the bland or over-compensating acting that I have known to plague SyFy's films. Conversely, the story is very predictable, you actually have an inkling that you know what is going to happen and most of the time you're actually right and you can smell the outcome from miles off. SyFy have been known for bad science that you wonder whether they do any research at all. I have to say though while the science is really quite wacky in Space Twister and I often didn't have a clue as to what was being conveyed I admit that I did get a good laugh out of it. There are also plot holes and things that don't make sense, again typical of SyFy. The idea of the tornado feeding Brosommes discovered via an experiment and when the father figure drove the truck through the fire and what happened after that were the main offenders. There is a lack of suspense and any genuine sense of horror to what is going on as well, everything feels very generic. But the story is not the only problematic thing with Space Twister, though it is its biggest problem. I also found the dialogue very corny and the characters stereotypical and not developed enough to be all that likable. In conclusion, reasonably entertaining(mainly for the wacky science) and less cheap than anticipated but the story just didn't convince me in any way. 4/10 Bethany Cox
