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.
