Good-hearted teenager William always lived in hope of following in his late father’s footsteps and becoming a storm chaser. His father’s legacy has now been turned into a storm-chasing tourist business, managed by the greedy and reckless Zane Rogers, who is now using William as the main attraction to lead a group of unsuspecting adventurers deep into the eye of the most dangerous supercell ever seen.
Like others, I was expecting it to be a newer Twister, but they missed the mark. It was just dull and meandering around. Lots of inconsistencies throughout and barely showing any action.
Like Twister it centered around a parent who had been killed in a storm and was about storm chasing and using a gadget that would do something to help early storm detection (although they never really explain what the heck it does).
That is where the similarities end, the rest of a kid trying to discover more about his dad and doing so by being fairly annoying. There are much better storm movies out there including Into the Storm or even the Hurricane Heist which isn't great, but more entertaining.

Boring, lazy and uninteresting
This movie tries to portray itself with mystique and fantasy, but winds up just being boring and unrealistic.
Going into this movie I had no idea who was even in it, but soon into it I then realize the problematic it was to an already a slow-moving drag of a movie.
The script was really lame but worse, the acting was amateurish.
Anne Heche's acting in this movie was awful and failed to deliver lines clearly or believably. Her presence in this movie was very distracting.
Alec Baldwin equally did a pretty substandard job in being believable, I simply did not get the Indiana Jones type of persona he was trying to deliver, it did not fit the overall flavor of this movie and his performance detracted from the theme of the flick.
The movie score on the other hand, was pretty good, it seemed to fit an ET or Gremlins sort of feel, its kind of felt like they tried to build a movie around the music, but unfortunately the movie doesnt hold up to the soundtrack. Slow moving snoozer.

Don't waste your time
With a great cast I was expecting so much more. Title should of been dysfunctional family that try's not to chase storms. Watched the entire movie hoping it would get better, but alas no. The back ground music didn't match what was happening it made it lead into something great was going to happen but nothing. You never get to see any great action scenes everything just leads up to something but falls flat. At one stage I thought the son was a teenager with well below average intelligence as he did some enormously stupid things and his behaviour was like that of a child. Sorry to say but 4 star was very generous and do not recommend this movie at all.
