As if the second shark-infused tornado in Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) wasn't enough, yet a third one hammers Washington, D.C., just when battle-scarred Fin was about to receive the prestigious Medal of Honour from the President himself. With the White House completely levelled and the capital in lock-down, Fin embarks on a dangerous journey to Florida's Universal Orlando Resort to find April, as an unstoppable swarm of violent mini-sharknadoes swiftly converge into one giant meteorological monster that threatens to obliterate the entire East Coast. Now, April, Nova Clarke, and Fin's estranged father, Gil Shepard, must come up with an effective strategy to destroy the pitiless atmospheric menace with the thousands of teeth. However, this time, it's a do-or-die situation. Is there a plan B, or is this the end of the world as we know it?Written by
The original crew for this movie were all fired when they attempted to unionize. See more »
(at around 4 mins) During Fin's medal presentation, an American flag is hanging in the background. In some shots, it is hanging correctly with the blue field on the left while in other shots, it is hanging incorrectly with the blue field on the right. See more »
Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) are now remarried and are expecting another child. After a trip to Washington D.C. to receive a medal from current president Marcus Robbins (Marc Cuban) for his heroic actions during the events in the first 2 films, another sharknado strikes destroying the capital. Fearing that his family is in danger, he heads to Orlando. What he doesn't know is that a sharknado is following him while another is attacking Orlando. Now he and those he runs into on the way to Orlando must work together to try to stop the sharknados before they combine to form a sharkicane with the potential to destroy the entire East Coast.
I'll get right to it and say that this movie is terrible but that's not the point here. Everyone probably knew this coming in so I don't think that I'm surprising anyone. The acting is bad, the special effects are bad to the point that they are laughable, and the story doesn't make any sense. I am aware that this movie is called Sharknado 3 so I wasn't expecting anything scientifically accurate. Sharks in space people!!!! I saw some things in this that made me question myself but like I've said, this film is called Sharknado 3 so in order to enjoy it, you just have to suspend belief and accept what you are being given. My favorite thing about the film is all the random shark kills in all their "semi-gory" glory (this is a TV movie so they can only go so far). You'll also be surprised by some of the people who get killed (no spoilers). Common sense would normally dictate not watching this but if you give it a chance you'll be pleasantly surprised and perhaps entertained as I was. I've seen the first 2 films and I enjoyed them a lot and I think that this one is the best one so far.
