Bet you weren’t surprised to see this week’s review is Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens. In case you’ve been hiding under a rock and have never seen a Sharknado movie, here’s what it’s about:
“Fin, his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the five years since the most recent attack, but now sharks and tornadoes are being whipped up in unexpected ways and places.”
In preparation for this review, I re-watched Sharknado 1 and 2, and finally watched 3. Have to first say I’m a huge fan of these movies, but the verdict is out on whether I loved 4 as much as the others. The 4th movie was way more ‘all over the place’ than the others. Sure, crazy cheezy and incredibly unbelievable are two positive qualities for the Sharknado franchise. However, while watching 4 you can’t look away from the screen for even a second or you’ll miss something. Even though Thunder Levin is the sole writer, it felt like there were twenty writers, each competing to outdo the others in crazy scenes. This was not a good thing.
I did like that they jumped five years into the future and how they brought most of the characters back together. Moving to land tornados seemed right, but again, there were way too many types of land tornados.
While I’m hung up on some of the negative things that stood out, I did like the movie. And I’m watching it for a second time while writing this review. Did I just admit to that?
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Bloody Brains (1 star down from the 5 I give the first 3 movies.)
Please leave zombie movie suggestions in the comments.
I prefer movies rated below a 4 on IMDB.
