    Weekend: Hot with scattered storms

  • 'Into the Storm' short on suspense, plot

    Disaster movies are by design not long on character development. Instead they bank on our love of being virtually, vicariously in fear for lives. Still, they need to establish personalities deep enough to care about, or at least halfheartedly root for....

  • 'Into the Storm' spent all its money on effects

    "Into the Storm" is as close to a real tornado as most of us would ever want to get. Its effects are so spectacular that it makes "Twister" look like "The Wizard of Oz." You wonder, as immersive as all those objects flying off the screen are, why they...

    Review: 'Into the Storm' &#9733 1/2
    Like "The Passion of Joan of Arc," "Ma and Pa Kettle at Waikiki" and "Dude, Where's My Car?" "Into the Storm" is a movie. And like the wind, this particular movie blows tall, unstable columns of hot air willy-nilly. In the spirit of "Sharknado" and...

    Matt Walsh turns off the funny for 'Into the Storm'
