  • Film Review: 'Into the Storm'

    Back in ye olde summer of 1996, few could have imagined that we would eventually look back fondly on Jan de Bont's "Twister" as the kind of movie "they" don't make like they used to. And yet, a scant two decades later, here comes "Into the Storm" to prime that nostalgic tear. An all-but-official redo of de Bont's film for the YouTube/Instagram generation, director Steven Quale's found-footage Frankenstorm extravaganza generates even more racket than its predecessor (especially in theaters equipped with the new Dolby Atmos sound system) and markedly less human interest -- up to and including a shameless heart-tugging coda that wraps itself in Old Glory more snugly than a Tea Party sleepover. Ultimately little more than a feature-length demo reel for nine credited VFX companies, this mid-budget New Line Cinema slate filler may earn some quick late-summer coin from undiscriminating teen auds; all others are advised to save it for a very rainy day.
