Into the Storm: The Return of the Disaster Film

Movie Review

  by Sandra Olmsted      As disaster films go, director Steven Quale’s Into the Storms delivers all those films promise: huge, exciting special effects and a human face on hope for survival against bigger-than-life, unstoppable disaster. Like other tornado disaster films since Twister popularized storm chasing, Into the Storm has a team of them.

His support team consists of experienced driver Daryl (Arlen Escarpeta) and nervous camera operator Jacob (Jeremy Sumpter), who wishes he was on a bench with a drink in his hand. Although she really wants to get home for her five-year-old daughter’s birthday, Allison sends the team toward Silverton and an ominous looking weather formation on the radar.
