Storm Chasers - Revenge of the Twister

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Kelly McGillis plays Jamie Marshall a storm chaser trying to get over the death of her recently deceased husband. When Colorado experiences a tornado in an area where they do not normally occur, she is sent in to investigate. Jamie works very closely with FEMA coordinator Will Stanton played by Wolf Larson. As Will and Jamie work closely together, the two are very drawn to each other. When they discover a facility doing illegal experiments that involve clear-cutting the nearby forests, they may have to forfeit their lives to prove it.
I didn't think this movie was as bad as other reviewers. You have to keep in mind that this is a made for TV movie, and not a blockbuster studio movie like Twister. Of course the special effects are not going to be done up to standards of a Hollywood production. I thought the acting was good, and not as scientifically lacking facts as Twister was.
Utter Nonsense, Poor Stroy Line, and Bad Acting

"I thought this would be a good sequel to "Twister." Was I ever wrong! The story line was poorly conceived. The acting was just as bad. If you want to see an action-suspense movie featuring tornadoes -- and, you really don't care about "realism;" then I suggest you get the original "Twister" instead. Leave this one on the shelves."
Rent "Twister" instead

"Combine a trite script, poor acting and some badly animated scenes and you get this movie. Scenes are difficult to watch because of the comical score and impossibly funny situations (the lead characters engage in a passionate kiss as ball lightning hails down upon them, the FEMA director seems to be an ordained minister as well.) However, one highlight of the movie (and deviation from the "Twister-like" script) was the inclusion of a government conspiracy involving the Department of Energy. Bottom line: rent Twister instead."
