Storyline

It's been five years since the last shark-Armageddon that devastated Washington, D.C. in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015), and the world can now benefit from this hard-earned peace, thanks to Aston Reynolds' revolutionary atmosphere stabilisers. However, as Fin is heading to Vegas for a family reunion, in the meantime, menacing clouds are beginning to form, and a brand-new Sharknado formation is at hand. Under those circumstances, once again, Fin, his old friends, and some new ones will have to battle against massive shark-infested cyclones, in a colossal Sharknado extravaganza with thousands of razor-sharp teeth. More and more, mutated types of evolved cyclones destroy everything in their path, as the mother of all Sharknadoes awakens. Can Fin dodge a bullet for the fourth time? Written by Nick Riganas

Different beast(s)
23 February 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

There are a couple of stabs directed at Star Wars (and one on Star Trek). But riffing on something popular does not make your movie really good. On the other hand, I don't think anyone will ever accuse the Sharknado movies of being intellectual or really something with gravitas (no pun intended of course).

There are quite a few cameos and star appearances (one from a fellow actor from another beast Scy-Fi movie with different animals as beasts. Btw. that other movie worked way better for many different reasons. So while CGI still is not anywhere near current tech, I don't reckon this will break the movie for you, if otherwise you liked it. It is really low and has me still wondering how there are still more of these to come ... Part 5 is confirmed for 2017
