Decent Monster Movie
6 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Tremors 5 (2015)

** (out of 4)

The fifth film in the series has Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) agreeing to travel to Africa to track down the underground creatures with a new partner (Jamie Kennedy). What neither men realize is that there are new breeds of the graboids and they've evolved. When they discover an underground lair of eggs their mission is to make them disappear for good.

TREMORS, in my opinion, is one of the greatest monster movies ever made. I first saw it in the theater when I was ten and it's honestly gotten better with age. The next three sequels were extremely hit and miss and there's no question that they couldn't match the original's charm or energy. This fifth film headed straight-to-video but for the most part it's a decent monster movie as long as you don't go in expecting anything like the original.

I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed with the creature's being changed. I'm not going to ruin what those changes are but I must admit that I didn't think it added anything great to the picture where it was actually needed or helped the film. In fact, we get one sequence, which was clearly imaged after JURASSIC PARK but obviously it's not nearly as intense here. With that said, the design of the new creatures really aren't that bad and when you consider the budget and the fact that CGI was used you really got to give them credit for at least looking good.

Gross has no problem getting back into his Gummer character and it was fun seeing him return to the series. Kennedy pretty much drops his comedy routine and instead goes for action hero. I can't say it was a complete success but it's not as bad as I feared. Pearl Thusi plays the main female character and easily steals the picture when she's on the screen. There's some fun death scenes throughout the film and even though it's PG-13 rated, there's also some rather gory graboid slime when they are destroyed.

With that said, the biggest problem is that the film still has a SyFy feel to it and I'd argue that you really don't care too much about any of the characters. There's attempts at humor throughout that just don't work too well and the twist that happens to a couple of the characters towards the end is just downright silly and goes nowhere. Still, if you're a fan of the series then you'll still want to give TREMORS 5 at least one viewing.
