Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Twister was a mega-million-dollar blockbuster--helmed by a director (Dutchman Jan de Bont) hot off another scorcher hit (Speed)--that flaunted state-of-the-art digital effects and featured a popular leading actress (Helen Hunt) who would win an Academy Award for her next film (As Good As It Gets). But ask anybody who's seen it and they'll tell you who the real star of Twister is: the cow. Not to give anything away, but the cow is one of those inspired little touches (like, say, Bronson Pinchot's career-making cameo in Beverly Hills Cop) that adds a touch of personality to a gigantic Hollywood production. The story is blown out the window after an impressive prologue in which Hunt's character, as a little girl, witnesses her daddy being sucked into a tornado. Basically, Hunt and Bill Paxton are thrill-seeking meteorologists chasing twisters in order to study them (and help warn people of them, of course) with a new technology they've developed. If you thought the Kansas tornado in The Wizard of Oz was every bit as scary as the Wicked Witch of the West, then this may be the movie for you. --Jim Emerson

Product Description

Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.

4.0 out of 5 stars The tornadoes alone save this movie. June 28 2004
Format:DVD
I have had interest in the concept of severe weather for my entire life and had high expectations for the movie "Twister" and the result cuts boths ways for me.
The movie is of a married meteoroligist couple who are in the midst of getting a divorce, and have not gotten along for a very long time and they make a new invention that they believe will help them see what it looks like, inside a full blown tornado. They have ambition to deploy this new technology to disperse 'lighter than air' radio transmitters into a twister and record the signals to see what it may look like inside a tornado.
The special effects when the tornadoes strike are absolutely awesome not to mention the chase scenes especially towards the ending when the couple speed away from a tornado drive right through a house that was thrown onto the countryside road by a tornado (Impossible in real life) and the other of when a drive-in movie screen showing a snippet of the movie "The Shining" being ripped apart by a F5 tornado in the middle of the night.
"Twister" though suffers from several things and I can sometimes see where some of the detractors are coming from when regarding this movie. While the action scenes and special effects are amazing, the movie's plot lacks a good flow and the film drags on and on in several places and one scene which is just like a boring day at home would've been better left out altogether. Plus the characters are very unconvincing and lack personality.
Even for me who doesn't mind ocassional deviation from the laws of physics in movies, some of the tornadoe scenes are completely unrealistic.

Really good show! Helen Hunt played her part spot on. I bought this for a friend and she just loves it! If it is on TV I will still watch it. It is just one of those amazing pictures that you don't get sick of.

Until this movie was made, very few people knew even the basics of "storm chasing" and the people behind it! Through this medium the public got to see just what is behind these extreme weather events and the people that follow them. The science and the art of storm chasing has evolved in leaps and bounds since this movie was released with the only downside being that now there are too many "amateur" storm chasers have come out that are poorly trained in this dangerous occupation.

By Joel Andrews TOP 500 REVIEWER

Twister -- In my set of favorites, own the original DVD and the updated one, I even have the VHS somewhere. I have seen this at least 50 times. Great acting, great FX for the time, and the soundtrack is great too!

This movie is great and well acted. I found myself on the edge of chair a few times. Somehow I think that being in that situation I would panic...to me is seemed true and not too far-fetched.
