    Those morphing, man-eating monsters are shaking things up again in the dusty little town of Perfection, Nevada - and survivalist Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) is the only solution to the latest in evolution! Aided by a couple of young local entrepreneurs (Shawn Christian and Susan Chuang), Burt pits his impressive knowledge of weaponry against the newest and deadliest generation of Graboids. If Burt and his new partners can't find a way to stop them, then the creatures that put Perfection on the map will wipe it right off the face of the earth. Tremors 3 promises earth-shaking, explosive, edge-of-your-seat entertainment.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait :)) October 10, 2001
    By Sketch
    Well...I`d been waiting for this one for a long time, and I wasn`t disappointed. The film is set 11 years after the initial graboid attacks in the first film, and returns to where it all started: Perfection. Burt Gummer is back, joined by many of the cast from the original movie, including Mindy and her mother, Melvin, and Miguel. They are joined by two new faces...Jack (who runs a seedy `Graboid safari` complete with simulation attacks), and Jodi Chang who runs the store. (A relative of Walter Chang from the first movie).
    The plot is straight forward. Burt returns from a Shrieker exterminating mission in Argentina, to his home valley of Perfection. When a simulation Graboid attack turns out to be the real thing, Burt steps up to do what he does best! Take them out!
    You have a lot of monster for your money in this movie. Graboids, Shriekers, and yes...a whole new Graboid evolution, which all tie neatly together, and more is explained about the Graboids. Some are the classic model stuff, and some are some CGI. I won`t ruin the surprise of the new evoltion, but like me, you can probably figure it out from the trailer ;)
    There are some great set pieces and action scenes in this movie, and a few shocks besides...Including one fairly early on involving one of the main characters..Which turns out to be one of the comedy highlights of the movie. The dialogue is as snappy as ever, and the movie is as strong as any in the franchise...I wasn`t disappointed for a minute, bar one moment, which I`d semi-expected, but was still sad to see.
    This movie doesn`t let up for a moment...

    4.0 out of 5 stars A fun sequel April 17, 2004
    I really wasn't expecting much from a third in the series even tho Tremors 2 added so much more imagination. So I was pleasantly surprised when this turned out to be so much fun.
    It begins with a rather cool opening scene in which Burt Gummer (still in Mexico) takes out zillions of Shriekers with a massive machine-gun tank thing. After returning home to Perfection Burt must deal with new graboids, new shriekers and another metamorphosis...The shriekers turn into Ass-Blasters, flying creatures with rocket propelled farts. As the town (and the returning, surviving cast from the first film) is besieged by all forms of these animals, Burt and his pals must figure out increasing desperate ways to destroy them.
    There's loads of energy and self-referential humor and the locations have a more dark/sophisticated look to them than in the previous 2 films. A light-hearted tone is still in check tho. There's even one teriffic scene in which Burt is swallowed by a Graboid and taken halfway across the desert. I paniced, I honestly thot we'd lost him. Turns out he's okay in the end.
    Fred Ward is definitely missed tho his abscence is explained (Earl and Grady went to make a Graboid amusement park) but Michael Gross is simply irreplaceable as the eccentric and paranoid Burt Gummer. And Ariana Richards is so much more cuter now that she's grown up.
    Tremors 3 is the best presented Tremors movie on DVD. The 1.85:1 anamorphic picture looks great and the Dolby 5.1 is reasonably lively with lots of bass during the tunnelling scenes. A fair amount of extras come along too.

    The original Tremors was an instant classic. A monster flick in the tradition of the 50's. Tremors 2, despite the absence of Kevin Bacon, still had Fred Ward, and in my opinion is still the best direct to video sequel ever! Well, now Fred's gone and all we have left is Michael Gross. And, THAT'S ENOUGH! Gross' Burt Gummer character is easily a fan favorite from all the films and here he takes center stage, nicely shared with new character's Desert Jack and Walter Chang's grand-daughter (or is it niece? I forget.) The new characters are much better than Grady from Tremors 2 (I'm glad he didn't return). Nice to see the returning faces from part one as well. The love story goes different than you would think from the set up, in a very refreshing change of pace. The Graboids evolution comes full circle! And while I'm sure it didn't have the biggest budget in the world, it looks pretty good and polished. Longer than the first film even, maybe 5 minutes could have been trimmed from here and there but that's nitpicking. Ariana Richards once again entertains a scene with a 2 legged beastie and a freezer like she did in Jurassic Park. You can tell the Stampede entertainment folks really care about the audience, instead of swilling out something straight to video sequels (Darkman, Disney films, anyone?) A good time, defintely if you've liked any Tremors films, and has a soon to be classic Burt line, "Is your head up you a$$ for the warmth?" Only problem? where's my real life graboids vs. shriekers Dark Horse comics?

    3.0 out of 5 stars Supposedly the creators best, but just another sequel November 22, 2001
    When the creators of Tremors I and II decided that they wanted to make another Tremors movie they not only wanted to make a sequel, they wanted to make their best. The truth is that they could have done a lot better. Maybe it was the fact they wanted to keep it family oriented or they just didn't have the time or financial capabilities of making a successful sequel. One can depict from the start that a movie made for home video only can't be of outstanding performance; it has its gaps somewhere. It is worth buying though if you are a Tremors fan. Burt returns as the fully loaded armed and dangerous vigilante, which is what keeps this movie alive. The opening sequence makes the movie look great, but the new actors just screw up the whole plot as the movie proceeds. There are some positive notes that one can look forward to though such as: Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, trailers from all three Tremor movies, and some other DVD extras that liven up the film. Over all beware before buying this one. Don't be fooled by the cover; it is nothing like the others where Burt goes insane will all of his weaponry. Burt has the weapons, but just when one thinks that he is about to unload he doesn't. It must have been the low budget that the crew had to deal with that ruined the action. Also there are some errors in the film that one can catch if you look hard. There is one obvious error that I cannot believe it was released without anyone noticing was: on the trailer for Tremors 3 they put the names next to the picture of the actors, but Burt's name is misspelled as Bert!
