Into The Storm tells the story of a single day in Silverton, when the town is ravaged by an unprecedented number of tornados. While most people are fleeing, or seeking shelter, there are those who head towards these vorticies of nature, in a quest to capture their power for science, and of course, money.
Told through the eyes of professional storm chasers, Into The Storm is a thrill ride of nature. Part found-footage, the viewer is dumped in the midst of the carnage, and it certainly feels as if you are there, seeing things that not many of survived to talk about.
This is no far fetched disaster movie, instead with looming climate change, it is all too feasable. The storms themselves are brilliantly created, with incredibly real looking effects. Not to be outdone, the cast hold their own against nature, and will have viewers feeling either sympathy for them, or hatred, as each reveals their true nature, and hidden motives.
Into The Storm is an action packed film of man against the power of Mother Nature, and although there are no massive plot twists, there is enough to keep you guessing.
A fun, thrilling film, and some great escape from the calm of every day life. Into The Storm opens 5 September 2014 in South Africa.
