Not the best Tremors installment, but enjoyable all the same
27 November 2015 | by LocalDoctorSee all my reviews

As an introduction, my favorite Tremor movies in order of most to least is as thus: Tremors 4 > Tremors 1 > Tremors 2 >>> Tremors 3 Note the triple arrows I put against Tremors 3. When I first found out Tremors 5 had 'ass-blasters' in it, I admit I did not feel confident. I thought Tremors 3 had a poor script, poor character chemistry, and the poor CGI played a big part in ruining it. I had an inkling Tremors 5 might have the same issues.

Well, I'm happy to report that I like this movie much better than I did the third installment.

The script is improved and the creatures in this movie seems vastly better. They have a much more realistic feel to them -- possibly because they're utilized more sparingly and usually during dark conditions. If I were to add it to my order above, I'd put Tremors 5 after Tremors 2.

There is a few things I regret about this, though. The characters are also enjoyable to watch, but their chemistry could use some work. Character chemistry is a big reason why I enjoyed Tremors 4 and Tremors 1 so much, so I regret seeing it less prominent here. I also thought the movie had climax build-up issues, which can be attributed to how viewers seem largely in the dark about how far along the goal characters were combined with a separate subplot running alongside the main story.

Still, to get to the point, the movie is fairly enjoyable to watch. It has its share of problems, but overall, I think it's a good addition to the series.
