“It looks real, and Director Jan De Bont keeps the action coming so fast there’s no time to question it.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“An expert in making audiences squirm and twist, at making us feel the rush of experience right along with the actors, De Bont choreographs action and suspense so beautifully he makes it seem like a snap.” – Los Angeles Times
“It’s a perfect motion picture roller coaster — fun, fast, and furious.” – James Berardinelli, ReelViews
During the approach of the most powerful storm in decades, university professor Dr. Jo Harding (Helen Hunt) and an underfunded team of students prepare the prototype for Dorothy, a ground-breaking tornado data-gathering device conceived by her estranged husband, Bill (Bill Paxton). When Harding tells Bill that Dorothy is ready for testing — and that their privately funded rival Dr. Jonas Miller (Cary Elwes) has stolen the idea and built his own — Bill rejoins the team for one last mission.
Dir. Jan de Bont. 1996. 113 min.
