Take Shelter Away from this one
8 January 2011 | by craigkaySee all my reviews

I am a tornado buff and enjoy a good storm movie. While a bit creaky, "Twister" pulled it off rather well. Sorry to say, this film is not as nearly as entertaining or believable. In fact, it is dangerously close to being absurd in its presentation of tornado activity; the film would have you believe that tornadoes just creep up on you, like wild beasts, out of nowhere. There is almost no tension or anticipation in the movie; the characters all seem to be on some type of mood altering drug. And to add to the torture, it is insultingly manipulative of the audience's emotional response to tragedies caused by such storms, serving up a healthy portion of sloppy mendacity. Stay out of the way of this one.
