If you like tornadoes, this is for you!

"My son loves tornadoes and violent weather...go figure. He says he wants to be a tornado chaser when he grows up. I bought this for him a few months ago and he loves it. It chronicles storm chasing by some fanatical but likable college kids majoring in meteorology (or maybe grad students in the same) and their obsession with tornado chasing. Very cool, some great shots of tornadoes up close and personal.. Also some awesome storms and hail. Definitely worth the money. Its a PBS Documentary."
Wow! Scary - but in a good way.

"We loved this movie! The footage is so captivating it totally sucks you in (pun intended). It's both scary and amazing to see how close the storm chasers get to tornadoes, and to see what people in tornado-prone areas of the country have to face each year. The storm chasers that are featured are fun, likeable, and of course, slightly nuts for doing what they do. We'll be watching this documentary again - probably every storm season!"

"...I loved this documentary. I grew up with tornado drills and warnings and they were just part of life, but "Tornado Glory" was really illuminating. I loved watching this from the perspective of people so passionate about getting inside the twister and learning how it ticks. It was exhilarating. It actually made me want to go out and chase a tornado. (It also made me want to install a cellar.) These guys reminded me of people I would have hung out with in college, and I enjoyed watching their interactions and conflicts. Good stuff."

"I want my money back. 80% talking heads and close ups of the chasers' faces from the back seat of the car and only 20% of storm shots. And the Shouting, Dictatorial Reed was annoying. Instead causing the viewer to "feel the moment" during in the exciting and dangerous moments of chasing, it is very, very annoying. Shut up! And the condescending volley of orders...! "Do this! Do that! Get the blankity-blank gas if you want." I finally turned the volume off, fast-forwarded to the few storm scenes offered and have just finished throwing this dvd in the trash. Useless!"
