Film Review: Into the Storm

On September 4, 2014

By Sophia Whitfield

A tornado is heading for the town of Silverton. Tracked by storm chasers making a documentary, we see the tornado unfold causing devastation to every place it hits. Through the eye of the lens we get a view of the way people respond to such a threat, from thrill seekers to storm chasers and every day suburban residents.

Starring Richard Armitage as Gary, Armitage made a name for himself in the UK when he starred in TV productions North and South (if you havenít seen it, you should) and Spooks. The Hobbit has put him firmly on the global stage. Here Armitage plays the single father of two sons. When one goes missing in the storm he commandeers the assistance of the storm chasers to help in his sonís recovery.

Sarah Wayne Callis (The Walking Dead) plays Allison, a member of the storm chasing team. She is the one Ďwith all the degreesí tracking the storm as it moves closer to the town of Silverton. Together with Gary (Armitage) they embark on a mission to save the people of Silverton currently taking shelter in the local school.

Special effects are integral to this film as deafening sound and 100-mile-hour winds are recreated to emulate twisters and tornadoes. This film is all about the effects and worth seeing on the big screen to capture the full force of the storm.

Into The Storm is out in cinemas across Australia today.
