Twisters: A Whirlwind of Action Hits Cinemas

Buckle up, because Twisters is here to yank you into a storm of adrenaline-fueled fun.

This reboot of 1996’s Twister throws together a ex storm-chaser Kate Cooper (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and a thrill-seeking social media star with a heart of gold (Glen Powell) as they chase the twisters of a lifetime.

The plot? It’s light and breezy, much like a stray flying car in a tornado (yes, that happens).

But who cares when the special effects are top-notch, creating monstrous twisters that’ll have you gripping your popcorn bucket.

Haunted by a devastating encounter with a tornado, Kate Cooper gets lured back to the open plains by her friend, Javi, to test a groundbreaking new tracking system.

She soon crosses paths with Tyler Owens, a charming but reckless social-media superstar who thrives on posting his storm-chasing adventures. As storm season intensifies, Kate, Tyler and their competing teams find themselves in a fight for their lives as multiple systems converge over central Oklahoma.

There’s some predictable yet fun banter and a healthy dose of cheesiness, but the leads have great chemistry that makes you root for them in a will they or won’t they way.

This sequel doesn’t require any past viewing of the 1996 hit, but don’t expect a groundbreaking story. If you crave pure, popcorn-munching entertainment, Twisters delivers.

It’s a wild ride with heart, reminding us that even amidst disaster, there’s a thrill to be found in the chase.
