Storyline

It's been five years since the last Sharknado that devastated Washington, D.C. and the world is benefiting from this hard-earned peace. Thankfully, Aston Reynolds' Astro-X tech company with their revolutionary atmosphere stabilisers called the Astro-Pods, has managed to eradicate all possible Sharknado formations before they could ever get the chance to grow in magnitude. However, while Fin is heading to Vegas for a family reunion, some fun and relaxation, in the meantime, menacing clouds are beginning to form and a brand-new Sharknado is at hand. Under those circumstances, once again, Fin, his old friends and some new ones, will have to battle against threatening shark-infested cyclones, in a calamitous Sharknado Extravaganza. Boy, are we in trouble or what? Written by Nick Riganas

Decent But the Weakest of the Series
11 October 2016 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Sharknado 4 (2016)

** (out of 4)

The fourth film in the series has a company creating a special shield that has prevented any future sharnados. Unfortuantly when Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) is in Las Vegas the thing breaks down and soon more killer sharks are flying around.

You know, I remember when the original movie aired on SyFy and there wasn't a bit of hype. The film turned out to be a pretty good movie as far as creature features go but sadly it became a social media hit and the producers used this to promote the next three films. SHARKNADO 4 is pretty much the same thing we saw in the previous movies but this one here goes even further in the social media game by having countless cameos from famous and semi-famous people.

For the most part the film is mildly entertaining and especially the first twenty-minutes in Las Vegas. I thought the film managed to have some fast and fun action and there were some creative shark kills as well. The non-stop parading of cameos was a bit annoying but that was to be expected. The biggest problem with the remaining portion of the film is that there just wasn't anything fresh or original. Ziering and Tara Reid did a decent enough of a job but folks like David Hasselhoff and especially Gary Busey were just wasted.
