Storyline

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

Sharknado 2: The Second One
30 July 2014 | by ILoveFilm1998See all my reviews

"Sharknado 2: The Second One" is a 2014 disaster movie and a sequel to the 2013 film "Sharknado". The film is directed by Anthony C. Ferrante, and stars Tara Reid, Ian Ziering, Vivica A. Fox, Kari Wuhrer, Kelly Osbourne, Benjy Bronk, Judah Friedlander, Andy Dick, and TNA superstar Kurt Angle. 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 and April can save the Big Apple.

In a sort of twisted sense, I kind of love this movie. Not that I think it's good from a filmmaking level, but on the amount of entertainment value "Sharknado 2" provided me. For any film I saw this year, it gave me some of the year's biggest laughs. Said laughs did come because the film basically murders logic in every sense of the world. Jumping the shark doesn't cover it. Compared to the first film, it both bigger and ridiculous, and it's so much fun. It feels like everyone behind the project knew what they are doing, and just have a ball with it, and so did I.

As I stated earlier, the film definitely isn't a master-class of filmmaking. The acting is the quality of what I expect from a film like this(Which is either average or really bad.). Also there were a few characters in the film I failed to see their purpose being in the story. Yet strangely though it strangely fit's the film absurdity, plus characters that actually play a part of the story, are pretty fun to watch. The visuals are pretty horrid form a technical perspective, though again, it's fits the movie better than if they were actually good. To avoid being repetitive, "Sharknado " does fail in what a film should do, but it gives it a charm that I can only find in this, and the original.
