    Twister

Rating:

Disaster:

Storm

Plot Summary:

A motley crew of weather scientists are chasing tornadoes across the Midwest of the USA. Also on the hunt is a another group of well equipped and well funded tornado chasers. Both groups intend to be the first to launch a new weather reading device in to the funnel of a tornado. Eventually, after a number of failed attempts, they all come in contact with the mother of all tornadoes - an F5!

Comments:

'Twister' has a little bit of all the essentials: good characterisation, steady plot development, easy and realistic dialogue and of course a massive instalment of state of the art special effects. A worthy addition to just about anyone's film collection.

Special Effects:

The special effects featured in 'Twister' are without doubt, the best tornado effects ever attempted. The realism is second to none and the mix between effects and real life shots is virtually seamless. Recommended.
