Ridiculous, but fun
12 August 2017 | by SyoKennexSee all my reviews

When going into a Sharknado movie, I think the first thing you have to remind yourself is that, it's going to be pretty rubbish. The whole series is just absolutely ridiculous, but that's what makes Sharknado, Sharknado. It's just a bit of out of this world fun, with terrible puns (seriously, Fin and Gil?) and just some really bad acting. And bad acting, especially is something you have to remember that is going to be going on throughout any Sharknado movie.

But the actors do really well, I wouldn't be surprised if they were told to act badly instead of taking the job seriously.

Sharknado 5 is, in my opinion, the best Sharknado of the series. We actually get to learn more of the science in the series. It was quite a leap from the last one, and it was pretty good. This one did a good job and I think it might have done the series some good.
