Into the Storm (2014)

With my recent viewing patterns being aliens, cryptids, and killers, I decided that I needed to venture into something different for some Sunday afternoon fun with the daughters. After some internal debate, I decided on the 2014 disaster flick, Into the Storm.

Plot/ Storm trackers, thrill-seekers, and everyday townspeople document an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes touching down in the town of Silverton.

Disaster movies are always a mixed bag, especially with the overwhelming amount of ridiculous entries coming from The Asylum and the SyFy Channel. While I have been staying away from them lately, I decided it was time again to venture into the category. This entry may not be the best of the genre, but it is also far from the worst. In fact, there were some entertaining and interesting spots with the CGI effects standing way above the recent entries. There were decent performances, action scenes, and the storyline is somewhat believable. On the downside, the characters were clich├ęd and boring, the storyline is vanilla, and overall it was rather predictable. In the end, this was an entertaining flick that is perfect for some afternoon family disaster fun. If you love this genre, give it a shot. If you do not, then there is really nothing new in this one.
