Baseball-size hail, violent winds, and churning tornadoes make supercells deadly, and when William Brody was a boy, his father – a legendary storm-chaser – was killed by one. Now, the family business belongs to Zane Rogers, a reckless tour operator who sees dollar signs where others see storm clouds. When his destiny arrives in the form of one of the most powerful storms on record, William leaves his mom and home behind to team up with his father’s ex-partner, Roy Cameron, barely surviving a tornado yet determined to chase one of nature’s most terrifying creations: the bear’s cage.




  • Get Blown Away with Supercell

    By Photodreamer2323
    "Supercell" is an entertaining ride that has rearned its place as one of my favorite natural disaster films in recent memory. Directed by Herbert James, the film tells the story of an unlikely friendship between man and storm. What sets this film apart from others in its genre is its amazing cinematography and memorable action sequences. It’s also therapeutic to see Alec Baldwin get swept away. Sorry for the spoiler but it must be said. Ultimately, "supercell" is a film about family and the need to know your roots. It's great fun and you should totally check it out.
  • Something worth watching

    By The Movie Monger
    A movie that is both refreshing and nostalgic simultaneously. Though there were issues with the ADR, this film is a true triumph of spectacle compared to other natural disaster films with budgets of 10 times the size. A great directorial debut for Herbert James along with Mr. Wallace’s beautiful score (an ode to John Williams) and Andrew Jeric’s cinematography truly put the bow on this film. Not only is there Spielbergian ‘feels’ but this film sets itself apart from the rest, ESPECIALLY within its own genre.

    Loved the nostalgic feeling
  • A wonderful nod to stormchasing

    By Alexander8819
    You can absolutely tell that this movie was made with so much care and devotion for the world of stormchasing. Firstly, the cinematography is breathtaking. The shot of the chasers driving out of the canyon and into the vista of a mushroomed supercell is truly awe inspiring. To anyone familiar with stormchasing, you’ll probably know of Pecos Hank, and some of his footage is actually in this film. So give him (and the filmmakers) some support and watch this - even if for his footage alone. Also major kudos that very little CGI was used to make this film (or they hid it VERY well). Secondly, the wonderful nods to the movie Twister are poignant and put a smile on my face. From the subtle nods in the music to Bill Paxton showing up in a very small but unique way. Thirdly, to those hating on Baldwin being cast in the film: the filming for Supercell took place before Baldwin’s Rust incident. Imagine being the director/writer of Supercell, pouring your heart and soul into your film, and an incident occurs (after your filming) on another movie set - do you just scrap your entire film? Because Baldwin (and others) were negligent on a film set doesn’t mean I’m going to stop watching Hunt For Red October. Likewise, it won’t stop me from enjoying a film that is clearly a love letter to storm chasing. All that being said, the film isn’t perfect: I don’t think the story about the tornado finding device was totally fleshed out - I think more explanation regarding the device would’ve helped. To me, it doesn’t have enough energetic hook moments; take the ‘Humans Being’ scene from Twister: it is iconic (for the music and cinematography) and really puts you into the tornado chase. But this film kinda lacks one of those moments. BUT what it does have is sweeping/epic cinematography that was sorely lacking from the movie Twister. So maybe it was a conscious choice by the director to keep the film less of an action film and more about the beauty of the storm (which he captures perfectly). If you’re going into this expecting a high-budget explosive-action Avatar-level production film you’re going to be disappointed. However, if you watch this film because you love stormchasing, have a love for Spielberg films, and enjoy beautiful cinematography, you’re going to like this film.
