So bad its good!
11 July 2013 | by See 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.
