A 'mockumentary' about David Moore, the filmmaker who first dreamed of "sharks in a tornado" and brought on disaster by using real sharks. The first SHARKNADO was to be a movie never seen, ... See full summary »
Survivors escape to a deserted atoll, after their boat during a Semester at Sea ship is sunk by a mutated two-headed shark. But when the atoll starts flooding, no one is safe from the double jaws of the monster.
It's been five years since the last Sharknado that devastated Washington, D.C. and the world is now benefiting from this hard-earned peace. Thankfully, Aston Reynolds' Astro-X tech company with their revolutionary atmosphere stabilisers called the Astro-Pods, has managed to eradicate all possible Sharknado formations before they could ever get the chance to grow in magnitude. However, while Fin is heading to Vegas for a family reunion, some fun and relaxation, in the meantime, menacing clouds are beginning to form, and a brand-new Sharknado is at hand. Under those circumstances, once again, Fin, his old friends and some new ones, will have to battle against threatening shark-infested cyclones, in a calamitous Sharknado extravaganza. Boy, are we in trouble or what?Written by
(at around 43 mins) The scene where Tara Reid saves the young boy by holding up the old car, is taken from Action Comics #1, where Superman is holding a similar car over his head. A similar scene appeared in Superman (1978), shortly after the Kents discovered the toddler Kal-El in the wrecked spaceship. Young Kal-El saved Jonathan Kent from severe injury, possibly death, after the truck nearly fell on top of Jonathan, by lifting the tail end of it up. See more »
(at around 26 mins) Aston proposes blowing up part of the Grand Canyon to block the flood from Hoover Dam. The Grand Canyon is over 50 miles upstream from Hoover Dam. See more »

Not really any worse than the other three chapters (how could it be).
'SHARKNADO 4: THE 4TH AWAKENS': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
The fourth installment in the popular Syfy network television film series (which began in 2013). This chapter was once again directed by Anthony C. Ferrante, and Thunder Levin once again wrote the screenplay (the duo performed the same duties on all three previous movies). Actors Ian Ziering and Tara Reid also reprise their starring roles (for the fourth time as well). Other returning cast members (from at least the previous installment) include David Hasselhoff and Ryan Newman; they're joined by newcomers Tommy Davidson, Gary Busey, Masiela Lusha, Cody Linley and Cheryl Tiegs. Cameos (this time around) include Stacey Dash, David Faustino, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Gilbert Gottfried, Steve Guttenberg, Lloyd Kaufman, Vince Neil, Wayne Newton and Al Roker (for his third time). The film has it's moments, but it's not as funny (or as cleverly bad) as the previous three installments.
The story takes place five years after the events of the third film; and there hasn't been a 'sharknado' in all of that time. Thanks to technical genius Aston Reynolds (Davidson), and his company's atmosphere stabilizers. Fin (Ziering) has been enjoying the peace and quiet, and he's now traveling to Las Vegas; for a family reunion. Unfortunately, he soon learns, that his break, from the sharknado action, is now over.
All of the 'SHARKNADO' films are laughably bad, which makes them also somewhat enjoyable. In my opinion the series reached it's peak in 2014 (with the first sequel). Now I think it's definitely running out of steam. This chapter is still mildly enjoyable, and it's also not really any worse than the other three chapters (how could it be). Fans of the series will probably still enjoy it.
