Into the Storm, written by John Swetnam; directed by Steven Quale. Copyright 2014. Seen August 6, 2014.

Some movies you watch because the plot sounds interesting. Others you go to because you like that genre. And then there are the movies you go to because you’ve enjoyed the work of the director or one of the actors and you want to see more.

For Into the Storm, I went because I saw Richard Armitage was listed in the cast. I’ve enjoyed his acting so far (especially when I had the chance to see him live in The Crucible at the Old Vic), and this overpowered the fact that the movie seemed to be just an updating of Twister.
