What started out as a super cheesy movie with the first installment, just gradually went faster and faster downhill with each new movie added to the franchise. And this 4th movie sure is the icing on the cake so far - I bet it will be even worse if they continue to make these movies.
"Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens" is now at the point where it stopped being fun, and it was actually somewhat of an embarrassment to witness. The previous movies had fun moments, especially because they were so over the top and so amazingly fake. But by now, it is just a re-run of previously used material, and it is wearing dangerously thin.
The story is essentially the same as in the previous three movies, so nothing much for innovation here. Don't get your hopes up.
The acting in "Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens" was as to be expected, and if you have seen any of the previous three movies, then you know exactly what you are in for, especially since none of the people on the cast list has been particularly improving their acting talents.
The effects, well, let's just say that they were also as to be expected. Cheesy and often hilariously fake special effects. But then again, isn't that what the "Sharknado" movies are sort of pseudo famous for? But "Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens" introduces a whole array of new terrible things, such a lightningnado, stonenado, firenado, and so on. Again, taking things too far out, to the point of embarrassment.
One thing that was working in favor for the movie was the subtle and blunt references to other movies. And if you are a movie fanatic, then you will find a lot of references throughout the course of "Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens".
However, "Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens" was the least entertaining of the current four movies in the franchise. And as such, then my verdict is that this movie scores a meager three out of ten stars.
