Good special effects. Ridiculously hackneyed plot, if you can even call it that.
It was a good film but did not age well. Just try.

After 20 years still a favorite. Awesome adventure, great soundtrack. "We got cows!"
Interesting to see through storm chaser pov,some intense action,but poor acting/script. Eh
Bizarre, but strangely enjoyable. I wouldn't pay to see it, however.

Twister is a 1996 American disaster/thriller film starring Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt as "storm chasers" researching tornadoes. It was directed by Jan de Bont. The film was based upon a script by Michael Crichton and Anne-Marie Martin. Its executive producers were Steven Spielberg, Walter Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Gerald R. Molen. Twister was the second-highest grossing film of 1996 domestically, with an estimated 55 million tickets sold in the US.
In the film, a team of storm chasers try to perfect a data-gathering instrument, designed to be released into the funnel of a tornado, while competing with another better-funded team with a similar device during a tornado outbreak across Oklahoma. The plot is a dramatized view of research projects like VORTEX of the NOAA and the device, called Dorothy, is copied from TOTO used in the 1980s by NSSL.
Twister is notable for being both the first Hollywood feature film to be released on DVD format and the last to be released on HD DVD....
