Twister is a true absurdity of a film, one where everything is subservient to the promise of disaster sequences & ruin porn, albeit watchable for the 90s nostalgia. In fact, it isn't inaccurate to say that the film's narrative structure is akin to a porno where the dramatic scenes are filler for the sex scenes (or the effects scenes). If anything, this film makes me realize how much I miss Bill Paxton as an actor.
Still worth a watch since it was one of the first major CGI effect catastrophe movies but it seems like the script was thrown into the twister too as it is a mess about two old lovers that reunite in the eye of the storm. Dialogue consist mostly of people screaming towards the wind-machine. Hard to hate Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt as the leads.
