Action/Disaster: Various people must contend with an outbreak of tornadoes that ravage a small town.
For storm chaser and documentary filmmaker Pete Moore (MATT WALSH), it's been a long dry spell since he and his crew -- cameramen Daryl (ARLEN ESCARPETA), Lucas (LEE WHITTAKER) and newcomer Jacob (JEREMY SUMPTER) -- have gotten any decent footage of tornadoes in action. Even the addition of meteorologist Allison Stone (SARAH WAYNE CALLIES) hasn't seemed to help any, and now with his funding cut off, he's become desperate and sees the latest series of severe storms as his last chance to get what he's after. Despite having lost all confidence in her weather prediction skills, Pete follows Allison's advice to head to the small town of Silverton.

There, Silverton High School vice principal Gary Fuller (RICHARD ARMITAGE) is preparing for their graduation ceremonies and has little time for his 17-year-old son, Donnie (MAX DEACON), making a time capsule video, something Gary previously requested. Donnie's more outgoing younger brother, Trey (NATHAN KRESS), thinks that Donnie should do something for himself, and thus the junior offers to help classmate Kaitlyn (ALYCIA DEBNAM CAREY) reshoot some video at an abandoned mill for a class project rather than video the graduation ceremony for his dad.

As amateur storm chasers and local goofballs Donk (KYLE DAVIS) and Reevis (JON REEP) throw all caution to the wind by going into the storms, Pete and his crew do the same, all while the Fuller men and everyone else in Silverton are unprepared for the outbreak of tornadoes that are about to strike their town.

If they're into disaster films (especially those weather related), they might have some interest.
For sequences of intense destruction and peril, and language including some sexual references.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
