  • Mario Alegre @ Primera Hora [Spanish]
  • Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]
  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Sonrojante exploit de cualquier producción Z televisiva de fin de semana sin prácticamente nada decente que destacar a lo largo de su desarrollo. Una patata.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: 1996’s “Twister” was far from a great film, but at least it had Philip Seymour Hoffman and flying cows. This latest fx extravaganza doesn’t even have sharks
  • Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: Director Steven Quales (“Final Destination 5”) and writer John Swetnam (“Step Up All In”) seem to have started with the concept of a “found footage” disaster movie, and thankfully, saner heads have prevailed. You wouldn’t be able to make heads or tails out of a movie about a barrage of tornadoes shot with cell phones.
  • Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: There’s the right kind of dumb—here, the senseless destruction—and the wrong kind—everything surrounding that devastation. The wrong greatly outweighs the right in Into the Storm.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: A suspenseful, truly terrifying thrill ride…
  • [New – 12/4/14] | Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A movie to make you despair of the found-footage conceit (if you weren’t already). Suddenly Twister looks like Shakespeare.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Into the Storm is classier than a SyFy original, but they are not distant cousins; you would think they look alike at the family picnic.
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: Into the Storm is another found footage failure – a gimmicky natural disaster film that fails to provide exciting tornado action or impactful human drama.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Creates legitimate, grip-your-date’s-leg excitement to turn a blind eye to the scripting issues and stiff, merely adequate performances. Sometimes, particularly in a disaster movie, that is enough.
  • Kristen Lopez @ Awards Circuit
    • Excerpt: Into the Storm is Sharknado sans sharks; a Syfy feature masquerading as a Hollywood production, released in theaters due to methodology at Warner Brothers not comprehended by the average cinephile.
  • Glenn Lovell @ CinemaDope.com
    • Excerpt: The latest Storm of the Century conveniently doubles as bonding experience and first date … Those looking for airborne bovine a la ‘Wizard of Oz’ and ‘Twister’ will be disappointed.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Stormy weather ahead…
  • Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: Sharknado minus the sharks: stormchasers gets more than they bargained for in this SyFy version of Twister
  • Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
