Having escaped death by the skin of their teeth after the unprecedented meteorological phenomenon in Sharknado (2013), the lucky survivors, Fin, and his former wife, April, find themselves en route to Manhattan, to warn the world about the freakish incident. However, once more, heavy, shark-ridden storm clouds gather in the sky, setting the stage for yet another blood-drenched disaster in the making. This time, the unsuspecting Big Apple is the epicentre of the ferocious tornado, as not one but two violent cyclones are converging into a massive atmospheric anomaly, threatening to level the entire city. Now, veteran Fin has to brave the elements and do what he does best before New York City turns into an endless all-you-can-eat buffet. But, the first Sharknado was already too much to handle. Who can survive a second one? Written by Nick Riganas

A good time
31 July 2014 | by boisenbSee all my reviews

Who thought they could top the first Sharknado but they have. This time the sharknado hits New York City. From the opening airplane sequence to sharks in the subway to the Empire State Building Sharknado 2 is truly awesome. Who doesn't want to see sharks in a skyscraper?! There is a ton of celebrity cameos in this movie. There's nothing like Matt Lauer and Al Roker reporting on a sharknado. The terrible cgi in the movie makes it even better. The end of this movie is one of the most epic endings ever. It even tops the chainsaw scene from the first Sharknado. I don't think I could have asked for anything more from this movie. I don't know about you but I am for sure looking forward to Sharknado 3.
