Trivia

Many crew members became seasick during principal photography, as well as one of the cast members. So not everything could be filmed at the time, hence pick-ups were needed. A lot of the pick-ups were done with the boat at dock, so as to not get talent or crew sick again. See more »

[Captain Sanitago serves a bowl of shark fin soup to an Asian businessman named Palmer]
Captain Carlos Santiago: Enjoy.

Captain Carlos Santiago: Captain.

So bad its good!
11 July 2013 | by wolfenuwgSee all my reviews

Acting... sub-par. CGI... laughable. This movie is so bad that it keep you laughing hysterically until the end. Physics, science, and common sense are all out the window though so don't expect it to make sense. Why? Because SyFy. One of the most curious things is what type of storm we're experiencing. Is it a hurricane? A tornado? A monsoon? Or just Superman? Maybe its all of the above. The cast is surprising though. Steve (Ian Ziering)from 90210 and Tara Reid may be better off turning their resume in to a temp agency at this point, but they do the best they can with campy dialogue. If there is a sequel, I hope it is called Sharknado v. Squidphoon.
