Go 'Into the Storm'
Into the Storm delivers on everything that it is supposed to. It has great special effects. It tells a story, and it has some moments of beauty and some truly terrifying moments. What the movie does not do is tell the story of its characters. It instead tells the story of the storm with the characters finding themselves within it.
This storm brings with it the darker side of storm chasing. With death and destruction, Twister’s Finger of God seems like small potatoes. Whereas Twister was about the relationship between Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton, this is about the storm, even with its themes about human beings, self-sacrifice and family.
Richard Armitage does fine with the role that he is given. As does every other actor. This may not be the summer ending blockbuster that everyone is waiting for, but it is at least as good as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If you have to decide between the two and want something that is more intense, Into the Storm is the movie to see.
There isn’t much else to say about Into the Storm. It has all of the elements of a nice October or February release, but the August date was probably poor timing. Still, if you like special effects where plot doesn’t get in the way, this movie provides a nice experience. And yes, there is a flying cow.
