This was the best worst movie I have ever seen.
B. Chu
Really a very horrible movie, bad acting, cheap special effects, and not scary and not fun or funny.
Steve Feldman
This was one of those really stupid movies that has to be watched simply to see just how bad it is.

5 Stars: For Lovers of Spectacularly Bad Movies (or the woefully inebriated)
1 Stars: For Everyone Else (or anyone remotely sober)

Through the years, I have seen some truly awful original movies produced for the SyFy channel (many of the most ludicrous courtesy of a company that calls itself The Asylum). Truthfully, I revel in these terrible little films hoping that one will transcend the genre and become what I like to refer to as Bad Movie Magic. I must say that with "Sharknado," Syfy and The Asylum have hit an absolute home run in creating a movie so ineptly comical that it must be seen to be believed. I laughed, I cringed, and I delighted in every moment of this epic production. In order to truly appreciate "Sharknado" and its intricate screenplay, you must completely ignore everything you know about weather, sharks, AND Los Angeles. The stupidity (I mean intensity) never relents! Either you are a fan of these types of movies or you're not. But if you are watching a film entitled "Sharknado," I don't want to hear afterwards how dumb you thought it was! What did you expect? It's called "Sharknado!" Everyone, from the executives of SyFy to the filmmakers to the cast and crew, knew what they were making. I'm just surprised they could keep a straight face.

I'm only going to discuss the plot itself in the briefest of terms. A hurricane off the coast of Mexico is pushing up toward the California coast bringing a passel of sharks with it. What kind of sharks? Every kind, of course, and they are all ready to rip any innocent bystander to shreds! As luck would have it, these storms cause a flooding of Los Angeles with sharks swimming through the streets as well as water spouts that ravage the city with sharks literally flying through the air. It's hysterical.

Better than any scripted comedy I've seen this year. Tornadoes forming on bright sunny days! Sharks that can breathe oxygen for long enough to rip through cars! And best of all, Biblical allegory! I howled till my sides hurt. The next time you're in a bad mood, try watching this.

For anyone who is a fan of being entertained. They do not try to do anything else with this movie, other than show you how crazy you can get with a modest budget and some low end acting and effects.

Get the movie, pretend you are at a drive inn theater with some good high school friends and enjoy yourself for a couple of hours!

My entire family crashed my movie night and watched this with me. We could not believe half the stuff we were seeing, then came the chainsaws and we were almost rolling on the floor.

My wife, she isn't into sci-fi as much as I am. And me, I'm not into SyFy much to be honest (note the difference).

However, there is absolutely no way we would have missed Sharknado for all the money in the world.

And. We. Weren't. Disappointed.

I don't even know where to begin, so I simply will not. You must watch this for yourself. Keep an open mind. I live-tweeted the entire movie along with 3/4 of Twitter. The tweets were almost better than the movie (but not really...the movie...is...so...AWESOME!).

There will never be a time like this when humanity came together as one, unless there is a Sharknado II that reaches our television screens.

I will never look at a chainsaw the same way again!

It's a bunch of sharks in a tornado. How can that not be five stars? I would give it ten if I could.

Out of all the SYFY offerings about killer sharks and the vapid bikini beach bodies they eat, this one is hands down the best. Camp, stupid, awesome, mind-bogglingly put together with no regard for science, physics, or common sense, its what all the other SYFY shark movies wanted to be, but could never quite reach.

From laughable special FX to scenes full of so many inconsistencies it would make a script supervisor throw up, "Sharknado" is the perfect party film. Buy it, invite your friends over and prepare to watch your TV drop one giant turd into your living room. Of all the "films" (using the term here loosely) I've seen this summer, this is the one I've talked about the most.

For anyone who remembers "Plan Nine from Outer Space," "Bride of the Monster," etc. by Edward D Wood Jr., Sharknoda is a fitting CGI tribute to the Ed Wood mark of excellence: Dialogue like real people speak everyday, situations that push Sci-Fi credibility beyond the pale, CGI sea creatures that challenge the sheer realism of Ed's motorized Octopus that does final battle with Bela Lugosi! The Ghoul, Sir Graves Ghastly, and other local monster-movie hosts of a bygone era would be proud to know that the tradition of low-budget terror-humor lives on. Pluck your magic twanger foggy!
