Critic Consensus: A high-concept blockbuster that emphasizes special effects over three-dimensional characters, Twister's visceral thrills are often offset by the film's generic plot.

Critic Reviews for Twister
The storms are breathtaking, the action pulse-quickening, and the two leads smart and likeable.
No one's going to buy into the romantic bickering between the lead scientists or their rivalry team of evil meteorologists. Still, if you're hooked on high-voltage special effects, Twister will give you a charge.
Like all white-knuckle rides, once you're done you fancy doing it all over again.
The hackneyed chatter and half-baked personal histories are enough to make you scream into the wind.
Audience Reviews for Twister
So it's impossible that any of these characters survive any of these close encounters with the twisters. That being said, the plot is ludicrous and dialogue is laughable (how many times can these characters point out the obvious?). If you can suspend reality and survive a crappy plot, then watching these cow-hurling tornadoes should provide with enough mindless entertainment for a couple of hours.
One of my favourite movies in this genre! Its a suspenful drama! If you enjoy disaster movies and are intrigue with nature and twisters, and with a hint of a blossoming romance then you'll enjoy this movie, very muich worth the watch!!
Disaster movie made for teens.
