Immensely enjoyable sequel effort
31 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Arriving in New York, a group of survivors are thrust into a familiar situation when another storm brings even more monstrous sharks into the city and must utilize the skills they learned from the past to deal with the current threat to save the city.

Quite simply, this was an unequivocal blast and has a lot to really like about it. One of the best elements at work here is the sense of fun this has playing around with such a silly concept. The fact that this starts off with the creatures moving along the storm into the city so that the confrontations can start immediately is where it really hits home since this allows for a non-stop, ballistic pace which crams in all the action possible to keep this interesting. The initial attack on the plane that starts this off in grand style by focusing on a high-flying action scene to start things off where the turbulence causes plenty fun and then gets the sharks involved tearing through the passengers onboard. This brings about the rather fun and enjoyable pace which has all sorts of action spread throughout given the larger city-ground to play with, that gives this a much bigger scope with which to engage those set-pieces, and the confrontations are so much more fun including the chase through the streets by the dismembered statue's head that crashes through the cars and buildings, the battle on the subway car with the different passengers being taken out with the sharks and trying to escape from the flooded streets of Times Square. Many of the one-off gags and cameos are designed to pay this off and follow the story throughout by constantly employing the sharks to serve as obstacles to overcome and that not only makes them a credible threat but also keeps the energy going by giving this the kind of silly universe that provides plenty of fun to be had not only with the idea of the creatures getting involved in the storm but also the rather goofy concept of providing commentary on the situation. That also means there's plenty of blood and gore throughout this one, serving rather grisly moments and encounters with the sharks and the human victims getting plenty of carnage thrust upon them throughout, including tons of chainsaw carnage, being split in half and devoured, and other sorts of cheesy action-packed gore here. It all adds to the fun time this provides, as long as there's enough suspension of disbelief to buy into the story that's presented since this one is just plain cheesy and goofy. That's really about the only thing that really hampers this one as it's a solid blast throughout.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence and Language.
