The story rushes into the action way too quickly, with the next storm hitting Washington just as Fin receives his award - and all hell breaks loose. The disaster scenes are exaggerated, over-ambitions and really badly done. And, off course, the shark effects are as bad as ever.
I had very little hope of this being as interesting as its predecessors, but after the rushed opening, the film surprised me by getting better and better. There were much less humor (apart from the bad shark effects), and the film had significantly more substance and action. Even NASA is involved here. The news reports by real-life presenters and reporters gives the strange events a sense of realism.
The acting isn't bad considering this to be a cheap movie. There's even appearances by Bo Derek, Frankie Muniz, and David Hasselfhoff. Cassandra Scerbo is back as heroin Nova. Fin has his trademark chainsaw again, and I must say, Ian Ziering is looking mighty fine! There's an amazing shirtless shot of Ian - just saying...
The film features clever satirical moments. 'Sharknado 3' is the best installment in the series, and also happens to be the highest rated in the series. The ending was really pushing it to the limit, though, seriously! In general, this was very entertaining.
