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

Neither a Christmas cracker or a Christmas turkey, better than expected however
5 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are things in Christmas Twister(aka F6: Twister) that could have been done better. The music is very pedestrian and at best forgettable. The special effects are cheesy and rushed-looking, a tell-tale sign of the movie being low-budget, then again that was to be expected. The more emotional moments in the script did come across as mawkish. And the global warming was agreed handled in a far too heavy-handed way and wasn't necessary to the story. The rest of the production values are not bad, of the low-budget movies seen recently even with the special effects not being up to par Christmas Twister is one of the better-looking ones. The tornado sequences do have a certain fun and tension to them, there aren't overused and they don't feel drawn-out. The dialogue can get cloying, but is well-meaning on the whole and there does seem to be effort to ensure that it made sense, which is more than can be said for other low-budget disaster movies. The story doesn't have a dull moment with the disaster scenes not devoid of their fun and thrills and the family scenes being generally heart-warming. With the characters, effort also seems to have been made to let all have chances to shine and to make them as likable as possible. The acting is also better than average, Casper Van Dien is a surprisingly good lead and if she does any more stuff Haley Lu Richardson is one to watch. All in all, better than expected while never reaching greatness. 6/10 Bethany Cox
