OK, I’ll admit it. I haven’t seen “Sharknado 1” or “Sharknado 2” but I love the ridiculous so when I saw the first film advertised way-back-when I knew I had to see it. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending how you look at it, life got in the way and I never got to see the wonder of “Sharknado” but here I am watching not the first, but the second sequel to “Sharknado”.

Obvious spoilers for “Sharknado” and “Sharknado 2” hereafter…

So, from what I gather the storyline of all three movies is simple and obviously very realistic. Finn Shepard (Ian Ziering) who in the previous two movies has saved both New York and Los Angeles (all with the help of a trusty chainsaw), this time takes on the deadly Sharknado that hits Orlando Florida where, unluckily, his pregnant wife and 18-year-old daughter are enjoying Universal Studios. Except they can’t enjoy it for long as the latest Sharknado hits.

I don’t really know how to review this movie as if I told you things that happened you would probably not believe me. With a random cast that includes Tara ReidIan Ziering, Ryan Newman, Cassie Scerbo, Bo DerekBlair Fowler,  and cameos from the likes of Frankie Muniz, Mark Cuban, David Hasselhoff, Jerry Springer, Lou Ferigno, a collection of US personalities I have never seen or heard of before and even Jedward.

The first analogy that came to mind when trying to describe Sharknado was that if you gave an amateur dramatics group a multi million pound budget and a mediocre special effects team and a script written by a 3-year-old, you’d probably have a better movie that Sharknado 3. Some movies are so bad they are good, this movie is just plain bad.

Would I recommend this movie? Well, to steal the tagline of “Sharknado 3”: …Oh Hell No!
