I was so excited to see this movie but I was let down. I enjoy watching the Stormchasers tv show so I have seen a couple of the episode and I felt like there is more tornado footage in the show then there was in this movie. There was a nice set up in the movie about how all the scientist working together with the equipment and that did take some time away from showing tornados but there was a part were it actually showed everyone just sitting around because the weather was nice and there weren't any tornados. Really?!? I understand that could be a break for a 2 hour movie but this is a 45 min movie on a giant IMAX screen- not really what the people paid to see... Which brings me to my next point, there were maybe 8 shots that needed to be on an IMAX screen that lasted 15-25 seconds. Everything else would have been fine on a tv screen.

I, too, watch "Storm Chasers." Don't go to this film expecting to see another episode. This is a documentary about Vortex 2 and the TIV and is intensely fun! I enjoyed every minute and wished it were longer than the 43 minutes. Amazing shots and funny moments really made this film worth watching. Watching "Storm Chasers" with a 50" TV won't be as enjoyable from now on. I need every episode on an IMAX screen now!!

Most of the movie consisted of footage of cars driving around with over-dramatic music. If you enjoy watching cars driving around aimlessly with inspirational music in the background then this is a must see.
