Winds on the plains in Oklahoma change and gust regularly, and wind speeds are typically higher than much of the rest of the country. Several characters are shown deeply contemplative about or reacting to a relatively gentle wind picking up outside (e.g., Aunt Meg before the Wakita tornado). While this makes for suspenseful storytelling, people in this region would be much more likely to notice the wind stopping as a sign that a storm is fast approaching. See more »

Twister, in my opinion, is a really good action thriller. Personally, I don't know how people can bash this movie. I thought it was an amazing film!! The acting is great, the special effects are excellent, the action is intense, and this film actually has a great storyline to it. To me, a 5.9/10 rating for this film is atrocious. I think this film deserves so much better!! I was thinking of somewhere in between a 7 and an 8/10. But I have my opinion and other people have their own right?? I just find it hard to believe that people don't like this movie.
Twister has everything I like in an action movie. It has amazing special effects, heart-stopping action, and a reasonably well written storyline. It even has some heartbreaking parts which almost brought tears to my eyes and I don't usually cry during movies. However I almost cried during Twister. Jan De Bont has created a very enjoyable that maybe doesn't come up to masterpiece material, but still is a memorable action movie that won't be forgotten for a long long time.
