After director Jan De Bont became highly successful for his hit blockbuster SPEED (click here), he had partnered with author Michael Critchton of JURASSIC PARK fame and Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg to co-develop TWISTER as his next film. Some people might say the film was written by chimpanzees, in my opinion however, I feel the minor faults in this film can be tolerated due to all the other strengths the movie has which by far outnumber the weaknesses. Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt portrayed the storm chaser couple who would soon be divorced and the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman was in a great supporting role and amused audiences with his upbeat energy and cheeky humour.
It's been years since I watched this film and I don't mind TWISTER and enjoyed re-watching it. TWISTER is by no means a landmark film however, it is certainly not a disappointment as some negative reviewers claim.
