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.Read more ›
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.
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!
But in all honesty, this needed to happen. This movie needs to exist. And you need to watch it. There is a reason it is a cult-movie. And you want to be a part of it.
It is so, so horrendously terrible. The first 5 minutes of the movie, I thought the whole thing was supposed to be serious. But by the first appearance of a single shark, you know the whole thing is intended to be as awful and unrealistic as it is, and that is why it is so wonderful. I sat there and watched the whole thing just to see how much corny, cheesy, slutty, punny content they could squeeze into it. And I was not disappointed. For anyone with a slap-stick or dark sense of humor, you will believe this to be a work of art. For those who take their cinema too seriously, you will hate it and everyone that willingly watches it. And for everyone else, this is the perfect background noise while playing Monopoly and getting drunk in your living room. It's an experience every human being should have. Don't watch it alone though. That's just pathetic.
