Critic Reviews of "Twister"
TIME MagazineNovember 05, 2008
You know a movie is in trouble when a cow provides its only moment of authentic human interest.
VarietyOctober 18, 2008
Even more than with most of Michael Crichton's concoctions, this one conveys the overwhelming impression of a mechanical entertainment, a very high concept in which the characters and their problems seem like utterly arbitrary creations.
Time OutJune 24, 2006
Effects apart, this is dire: predictable, clich√©d, sloppily written, pitifully performed and surprisingly short of real shocks and suspense.
San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
It looks real, and Director Jan De Bont keeps the action coming so fast there's no time to question it.
Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
An expert in making audiences squirm and twist, at making us feel the rush of experience right along with the actors, De Bont choreographs action and suspense so beautifully he makes it seem like a snap.
ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
It's a perfect motion picture roller coaster -- fun, fast, and furious... as long as you don't think too hard.
Antagony & EcstasyNovember 27, 2014
Holds up against the noisy, busy, idiotically-scripted movies of today for all sorts of reasons [but] that does not excuse it from being a noisy, busy, idiotically-scripted movie in its own right.
Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
Decent disaster movie for teens.
TV GuideNovember 05, 2008
Extreme-weather buffs, thrill-ride junkies and anyone else in search of mindless entertainment need look no further.
ESplatterJuly 23, 2008
The action starts in the opening frame and never lets up.
Groucho ReviewsMay 21, 2008
It may not be fashionable to like Twister, but darn if it isn't an entertaining electro-shock of action cinema.
Film Freak CentralMay 12, 2008
Surely the only movie to ever suggest a dumbed-down His Girl Friday, Road Runner cartoon, and The Abyss simultaneously
