In the span of just a few hours, the city of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of the most furious twisters they've ever seen. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run toward the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.
Action Thriller - This is a disaster thriller with no familiar names but a lot of
elaborate effects to serve as its main draw. There are scenes of
violent weather and its effects that may be too intense and scary for
young children, not to mention there is a fair amount of language.
PROFANITY: 29 S-words; 2 GD's; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: People thrown and tossed by tornadoes. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol at leisure. ACTION: Tornado action and destruction. COMEDY: Some silly lines and gags.
Roger EbertFull Review Average The structure and impressive effects of "Into the Storm" could keep viewers entertained on a rainy weekend evening, but it's the shallow, non-existent characterizations that keep it from working.
USA TodayFull Review Average Much of the movie is mired in clunky exposition, and only the two lead characters, played by Richard Armitage and Callies, are believable.
NY PostFull Review Good The effects in 'Into the Storm' may not be state-of-the-art, but they get the job done — and there's lots of wham, bang, thank you, man!

Based on a theater exit polling of 52 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: One child loved it and two thought it was just "average."
TEENS: Three males loved it, one rated it "above average" and one felt it was just an "average" movie. Three of the four females loved "Into the Storm." The fourth female rated it "above average," which indicates a movie she enjoyed very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Two males loved it, two enjoyed it very much and one rated it "average." Very mixed reviews from the four ladies. One loved it and one enjoyed it very much. Another rated it "average" and one actually hated it (since this very low review is so different from the others, it may not be an accurate review).
ADULTS: Approximately, half loved "Into the Storm," with another 30% rating it "above average." The remaining 20% rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Equally important, no adults disliked "Into the Storm."
