Nice pics of Oklahoma and fun special effects

Having lived in Oklahoma all of my life, I was glad that they filmed a lot of it here. The film shows what it's really like here in rural Oklahoma, mostly green rolling country with trees, hills and water, with a few oil pumps and windmills thrown in. I don't need to add anything to the comments about the lack of scientific accuracy do I? My wife and I always note with interest that they occasionally get a few things right. The reason I will watch this movie again from time to time is that it is FUN. I love the exuberance of Bill Paxton's team; I know people like the Philip Seymour Hoffman character and I myself LOVE watching the buildup of a thunderstorm, seeing the sky turn green, and the way the air smells and feels before and after one of our storms. Yes, tornadoes are deadly threats, but we ALWAYS have warnings here. There would never be a drive-in theater full of people in cars with no idea that a funnel is on top of them, but, in this movie, that's beside the point. It's pure fun watching the screen ripped apart while Jack Nicholson is wielding the ax. If you are expecting true life reality, this is not your movie. Just go for the spectacle! The bit of reality in this movie, that Oklahoma is lovely in its own way, and that some people love thunderstorms and tornadoes was enough reality for me, and the rest is just the fun of a cinematic roller-coaster ride with some great special effects. It's not Shakespeare or even "Titanic", so don't expect more and just enjoy it for what it is!

I doubt if real tornado nerds are as unlikeable as the ones in TWISTER

Pretty good special effects built around a cast of good actors portraying very unlikeable tornado chasing geeks. Wow...how rude and self absorbed can these characters be??!! Its a good relationship/self awareness/maturity introspection teaching movie. If you are obsessed by some activity (like studying/chasing tornadoes) and decide to form a club of like-minded, completely dedicated "nerds" or "geeks" focused on that activity, then watch this movie and make sure you don't act these people. I felt bad for the Jami Gertz character. Granted, I was not sure what marriage/cheating/infidelity dynamics were going on but those tornado people sure did treat her poorly. She should never had shown up and attempted to hang with those people. I am going to try and be a nicer person when I see an "outsider" in my presence. Thanks for helping me become a better man.

Quite realistic and probably Bill Paxton's career highlight.

I've gone storm chasing before and this movie really entails how that mother nature can create an angry sky and just as angry people. The graphics are good, dialogue's good, plot is okay, and is an all and all genuine movie. While it's not a very much of a feel good movie, it's a movie showing just how chaotic weather and your own life can get.
