  1. That is pretty much what I felt and I imagine what most in the Midwest and South feel. We have only had a few small tornadoes here but I have read more non fiction about these things so it is easy to see the extra effects but overall the trailer looked good. What it is really is that you watch something like this and you become caught up with the people they show but of course you don’t see the hundreds that are also affected by these storms. Mother Nature is awesome capable of great beauty and great cruelty.

  2. I don’t think it’s so much could this happen but would it happen, and not only the weather itself but more the human side of things. I’m really good at suspending belief to enjoy myself with these kinds of movies though, so I’m not worried 🙂

    • I think the triggers of “what detail would kill it for you” are so highly individual. My impression at the moment is that more fans would be bothered by a poor American accident than an unrealistic storm. Which is cool. 🙂

      • what usually kills it for me are cultural/location mistakes. I saw a movie once that was supposed to take place in my city. it wasn’t filmed here so it looked nothing like it, of course, but they named a popular local roadway and then placed it in the wrong area. that bothered me immensely; do your research!

  3. Wow! Did anybody watch the youtube video at the end of the article ….1st person of the Joplin tornado? Hardly any video under the circumstances, mostly just flashes of light, but the sound is enough…..

    And also…. the 1st page of the article has an interesting spoiler (not that we hadn’t figured this out 🙂
