Storyline

In a small Texas town during the holiday season, Ethan Walker, a meteorologist and part-time professor working at the local university studying tornadoes, is woken in the middle of the night for a call about a tornado that has just hit. His team is assembling at the lab and he needs to report. His wife Addison, a TV news reporter, is also summoned to work to do a piece on the tornado for the morning news. Ethan realizes the conditions are ripe for more tornadoes. Although he and his wife have been having marriage problems, he calls her and begs her to put the warning out, but the station's slick meteorologist thinks it was an isolated incident. Addison tries to get him to change his mind, but he won't -- because it's Christmas time and he does not want to be a Scrooge with some hypothetical news. When a tornado levels the Walker's house on Christmas Eve, Ethan and his wife must come together to help save others and rescue their missing children. Written by Anonymous

An Average Disaster Thriller
25 November 2013 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Take Pierce Brosnan in the volcanic disaster movie Dante's Peak (1997), set it during Christmas and replace the volcano with a twister instead and you have the basics for Christmas Twister. With little originality and some not very convincing acting, a number of logical plot problems (security or emergency personnel seem to be more superficial decorations having little to do) or omissions, and at times obvious faked special effects of exploding fires, this movie is hard to watch at times.

Overall, however, the plot has some semblance of continuity with holes, each lead character get their fair share (perhaps excessively so) of screen time. This is just another exploitative television commercial movie filled the cliques and typical disaster tidbits that the audience has already seen before but just in a different package.
