Into the Storm D-BOX Movie Review

This film trailer played out like an updated version of Twister from 1996. While the effects have certainly got better the acting really hasn't. The plot is fairly basic, dad and son get separated by the storm and try to get back together, all the while the storm chasers are trying to film the impending doom. With no real star power the movie is basically driven by the effects, which are sometimes unfortunately filmed in wobble cam vision (why? will directors please just stop with camcorder footage). Luckily the effects, sounds and sheer drama on show, of buildings being ripped apart by a super storm, keep you tense and on the edge of your seat.

Talking of seats, the D-BOX chairs seriously make this film. Shaking, rumbling and sometimes literally twirling and you go into the eye of the storm. Top marks D-BOX!
