A 'mockumentary' about David Moore, the filmmaker who first dreamed of "sharks in a tornado" and brought on disaster by using real sharks. The first SHARKNADO was to be a movie never seen, ... See full summary »
Survivors escape to a deserted atoll, after their boat during a Semester at Sea ship is sunk by a mutated two-headed shark. But when the atoll starts flooding, no one is safe from the double jaws of the monster.
A freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites - and only Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) can save the Big Apple.
Whether or not this tops the first film is hard to say, but they pulled all the stops when it came to references for "Taxi", "Airplane", "Jaws" and maybe even "Evil Dead". And the cameos are never-ending (good luck catching them all).
John W. Bowen said it very well when he argued that this film actually surpasses the first. He wrote, "The original wisely refused to take itself seriously but never fully embraced its own absurdity, whereas Sharknado 2 happily wallows in it and invites us to dive right in."
If you have friends and a case of beer (or whatever your preferred beverage is), this is a lot of fun. But if you expect it to be critically better in any way, you are delusional. It is just as cheesy as the first.
