Belfast Telegraph Gives Mixed Review of Into the Storm


Gary Morris – The grumpiest man ever

They’re not the most unlikeable bunch, even if Richard Armitage’s Gary Morris – the vice-principal of the local school – is the grumpiest man ever. It’s a good job the hinted-at romance between him and Sarah Wayne Callies’s Dr Alison Stone never comes to fruition, as it would have been a suspension of disbelief too far.

The Guardian Reviews Into the Storm: Idiotic


Tornadoes have scant respect for reputations. In Steven Quale’s idiotic disaster movie, they come lolloping across the midwest, one after another, scattering meteorologists and meatheads, teenage sweethearts and documentary film-makers alike. The weather is flipping jumbo jets like ninepins, spinning school buses like tops. The one thing it can’t ruffle, apparently, is Richard Armitage’s foursquare teacher, who toils through the elements to save his son from a flooded industrial park. All around, meanwhile, the film’s bullish special effects are wreaking havoc with the narrative.

Into the Storm sets forth as a found-footage thriller before losing its thread and then doubling back on itself in abject disarray. “Are you having fun yet?” shouts a gung-ho cameraman as the first twister rolls in. This is going to get worse before it gets better.
