My favorite franchise
30 October 2016 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

I just realized this was my 500th movie since I registered on IMDb. Jubilee should be cheerful and this movie was definitely hit. Exaggeration of epic proportions, travesty, quotes from famous movies, crazy action from the very start and enormous amount of laughter and entertainment. Movie has no introduction at all, madness starts from the very beginning. They nailed it again.

  • It wouldn't be Texas without chainsaw massacre. - Dad, I don't think

we're in Kansas any more. - It's not my mom, my mom is shark, not a robot.

Beside sharkando, we also get sendnado, lavanado, lightningnado, bouldernado, oilnado and finally nukenado. I wonder how will they exceed this in next sequel. And there simply has to be next one. And next one and some more on top of that. <3
