      What to Know

      Critics 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.

      Dídac G Me encanta! Ahora toca verla de verdad... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Michael C Meh. Good cast, hollow plot, bad writing. Saw it in the theater. Never again. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/24 Full Review Zinjx W The film is not a full classic, but it has a lot going for it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/17/24 Full Review robert t Gets better with age. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/15/24 Full Review Nick Carlson An all-time classic, Can’t wait to see the long awaited sequel in July this year ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/12/24 Full Review Paradigm C Warmed over garbage. Its as cheesy as I remembered, quite forgettable aside from the really stupid unbelievable scenes (the ending). Tornado makes "monster sounds", its just really bad brain rot. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader The engineering of the special effects is fairly impressive, and the sight of so many objects and creatures being buffeted about carries a certain apocalyptic splendor. Jun 14, 2022 Full Review Ann Hornaday Austin American-Statesman The storms are breathtaking, the action pulse-quickening, and the two leads smart and likeable. Rated: 3/5 May 7, 2021 Full Review Jay Carr Boston Globe [A] high-powered spectacle designed to blow us away... Rated: 3/4 May 7, 2021 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies The film's visual effects might not have aged in the best way but as an epic disaster thriller, Twister still holds up over 25 years after its release. Rated: 5/5 Apr 10, 2023 Full Review Cory Woodroof 615 Film This is a little long and ridiculous, but it’s also just a tour-de-force roller coaster theme park attraction...which is ironic, because the actual theme park attraction for this sucked. Jun 25, 2022 Full Review James Croot Stuff.co.nz As sold in the original trailers all those years ago, this is not about the actors. This is about the special effects, Industrial Light and Magic living up to their name in creating a real monster out of whirling winds. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 1, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
