I ordered this movie for my son. He is OBSESSED with tornados, hurricanes, ect. He watched it everyday(sometimes twice a day) for about a week! He loved it! I even sat and watched it with him, once or twice. If you or your kids like disaster movies, this would be a nice flik!

Global warming is a hot subject! (excuse the pun) This time, twisters appear in an American state that has never had more than rain before. No-one is prepared for this disaster, but we just happen to have the 'Tornado Lady' visiting at this time!
Don't look too closely at the science, and it is an enjoyable movie, with some unexpected twists thrown in to try to make it more about humans than nature!

Never seen this movie before and overall, I was pleased with this movie. Oddly, it takes place in eastern Oklahoma and on this video/movie, it has mountains and not like the real Oklahoma has....so that seemed odd. The tornadoes they used in this movie seemed quite realistic compared to other movies I have viewed over the past few years, a plus in my eyes. The movie plot seemed okay and like I said, overall this movie was okay and pleased with it generally.

This is a good movie if you are a disaster film buff as I am. I enjoyed watching it. It isn't the best I've seen but it is still worth the time to watch.

Never heard of this,but I love movies like this.and I'm glad I did because this is a terrific movie.starting with action and ending with action,the title and picture alone tells it's going to be a good one.

Package came before the due date and in excellent condition. I am a sci fy b movie fan so I enjoyed it. You have to be into Sci Fy and really into those B rated movies to enjoy it.

Where do I begin??? Well, let's start in Oklahoma, with lots of tall mountains. Yes, there are some low elevation mountains in OK near Lawton, and some even lower elevation ones in south central OK, but come on. I've been a Skywarn spotter for the National Weather Service since the early 70's and live in Kansas. I have an interest in movies about severe types of weather, so thought I'd give this one a try. Boy, was I mistaken. This is absolutely the worst movie of this type I've seen. I thought TWISTER! was bad, but this one makes it look really good.
Video of hurricanes (instead of tornadoes) and really poor special effects (most tornadoes don't shoot from the storm cell almost instantly to the ground). People running through flying debris in several instances was hard to take. Not realistic at all. Then the topper: (Spoiler warning)during the final tornado episode, with a large tornado approaching, people standing only a few feet away from the back door of a large house (when they could shelter in a basement), proceed to run out toward the tornado into a field and lie down! I couldn't believe a script writer would do such a thing...totally against any common sense! Anyway, this is a movie to skip, especially if you have any knowledge of real tornadoes. Very poorly done movie.

I have nothing to say good about this movie except some decent effects. The movie goes from one twister to another, with some superimposed, fake plot that seems to appear from nowhere and disappear into the twister...sorry....not very good at sarcasm. The acting is forced (and I really like Mimi R. usually). Awful, awful movie. Wanna buy mine?

After a massive tornado take the lives of her parents, April Saunders dedicates much of her life to studying tornadoes and to finding better weather systems to track them. On a trip to Seattle with her teenage daughter, she stumbles upon a supercell that begins to cause rare and forceful tornadoes in the area. When her daughter is caught in a dangerous twister, April must find a way to save her as well as an unprepared city from destruction.

You know, I've seen dozens and dozens of tornado movies since "Twister" came out back in 1996. While I have my personal favorites amongst them all, Storm Cell is one that sits right alongside the best of them. True, watching it- it looks like your garden variety tornado movie but what Storm Cell excels as a movie is in how the dynamic between mother and daughter actually is in the movie. It was quite believable to me. To me, that made the movie a step above other movies of this type.

Course, Storm Cell isn't without its' faults. People running around through flying debris without being hit is one thing. The ending is another thing, it didn't quite cut it for me.

If you don't look too closely to the science of tornadoes and twisters while watching this movie, Storm Cell is a great watch. I loved it myself.
