For this review, I decided to include some of the tweets I made while I was watching it. 99.9% of the time I give each and every film I watch 100% of my attention, but as you’ll read, for this film it wasn’t really necessary!
Sharknado is without a doubt one of the worst movies ever made, but it had me cheering at the end! No character development, cheesy dialog, awful special effects and absolutely zero respect for the laws of physics. Even some of the actor’s makeup looked like it was applied with a paint gun!
At first I thought I wasn’t going to make it through this terrible film, but then somehow it hooks you, and you realize this has to be bad by design. From that moment on a weird respect for Sharknado forms.
Most of the film involves random characters reacting to things, and judging by the looks on their faces, I don’t think they were told what they were reacting to, or even where to look. The film’s continuity errors are just shocking too. One moment everyone’s freaking out about the storm, then the very next second it’s a sunny day. Early on in the movie the entire first floor of a house is flooded, and the front door has been destroyed by sharks. Moments later the front door is back in place, and the outside area isn’t flooded at all.
I just didn’t care though, and as the movie thundered its way to a conclusion I found myself perched on the edge of my chair laughing hysterically after each shark attack. Sharknado is awful, bad, horrible, terrible, incomprehensible, illogical, stupid, dumb, ridiculous and I totally recommend you see it!
Prepare yourself for an awful movie, and if you can shut down the logic centers of your brain – do it! You’ll get into the movie faster that way.
This is a TV movie that needs to be watched on a big TV! Invite friends and make an evening of it. If you’re old enough, tasty alcoholic beverages should enhance this experience! Please drink and watch movies responsibly. 🙂
