So I just finished Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! right? It was great fun. I laughed my ass off in a lot of places, and despite a ridiculously ridiculous ending (that also left Tara Reid’s fate hanging in the balance) it was still a great addition to the franchise. And here’s why…Even though the SyFy movies are usually ratings hits, more often than not you find yourself wanting to change the channel after a few minutes due to the horrible acting and beyond cheesy special effects. But in the case of the Sharknado films it’s that cheesy over-the-top acting from D-List celebs coupled with the bad graphics that turn these movies into appointment viewing.
I’m not gonna go into too much detail here because I would hope you all watch it for yourselves, but this time the celeb cameos are through the roof (Maria Menounos, Lorenzo Lamas, Ray J…for more, see HERE)! The plot is utterly preposterous, and all the gags work to perfection. When I laughed, I laughed HARD, especially during the film’s first sequence. Come on, Fin (Ian Ziering) and The President (Mark Cuban) fighting side by side, blasting the sharks into pieces while their suits have nary a bit of blood on them isn’t goddamn hilarious? Oh man, it was fucking priceless!
With multiple Sharknados from Washington D.C. to Orlando, FL this time around there’s certainly no shortage of dull moments, although I preferred the less serious tone of the previous installment to some of the heavy handed moments in this one. However, Frankie Muniz definitely has one of the best scenes while fighting the sharks and really redefines “using your head”. I could go on and on about what everyone does, and I have to say I was VERY happy to see Nova (Cassie Scerbo) back, but again, I don’t want to spoil anything. After six straight hours of these movies today I am very happy to tell you that Sharknado 4 is a definite GO for 2016, which excites the hell out of me. Hell no? I say, “HELL YES!!”
