This set contains two movies, Tremors and Tremors 4 - The Legend Begins. I assume anyone buying this is familiar with the first movie where the small town of Perfection is beset by huge underground monsters dubbed Graboids.
In the first three films we were introduced to the three stages of Graboid physiology. In the fourth installment, we get to see what they look like soon after hatching. We also return to live-action worms and not the CGI that many complained about in the third movie.
The small town of Rejection is starting to boom as the local silver mine is very productive. But the mining disturbs something in the ground and the miners begin to disappear. Most of the town flees except a small handful. The mine's owner arrives, Mr. Gummer (again played by Michael Gross). This Gummer is different than his descendant in that he does not even own a gun.
Well, Gummer and the remaining residents set out to check the mine over and then get rid of the "dirt dragons" via a skilled gunslinger. In the end everyone must pull together to end the menace.
Some wonderful foreshadowing of the earlier movies. We see the development of the general store, Gummer's character, and other small bits. Quite fun and a welcome addition to the series although it takes a little getting used to not hearing the creatures referred to as Graboids.

The Tremors series is either something one loves or hates; I doubt there is much middle ground. I feel Tremors (the first) is the best, and this prequel is a worthy addition. Staring Michael Gross as Bert's either grandfather or great grandfather was terrific. And so is the women playing what would become the Gross-Reba role in the first movie. As Hiram evolved from the east coast Dandy to a more take charge person, it was done with affection and keeping in character. There are not blow your mind special effects, just competent and fun special effects. This is a movie more about the characters and the unknowns (worms) and their interactions. Black Hand Kelly is a great role in this movie and there is just enough homages to the first movie to make a good link. Perhaps less tongue in cheek and fewer laughable quips, but the pace is brisk and entertaining. I really loved the ending scene. This is a must addition to fans of this franchise, and holds the promise of more movies in this series. Set in the silver mine town of Rejection, Nevada, which becomes Perfection, Nevada in movie #1. If you like sci-fi without the multi million dollar effects, you will like this movie.

Tremors 4 diffently makes up for the countless faults of Tremors 3. There is very few cheesy CGI effects, it is mostly back to good old fashion puppetry...which for a lot of it, looked real on their part. Most of the people are great characters, and Micheal Gross does a super job doing a "anti Bert" kinda of image, well since he is suppose to be the great grandfather.
The new baby graboid forms are to die for. The scenes of them launching out of the ground to try and hit their target into submission is great. Kinda laughed when one of the men got hit form both sides by 2 little ones.
Over all the movie was nearly almost as good as the original. Each character has their own special quality that makes them induring. Especially Black Hand Kelly. Most certainly going to be a Tremors fan fav when all is said and done.

This film is pure fun and you can feel it in every scene.
Tremors 4 looks backwards at the origins of the town of Perfection and the Graboids. In making this a prequel, everything old is new again. We get the excitement of discovery all over again and we get to see the townsfolk REALLY scared.
For horror/action fans, this film is a real treat. Without a mega-budget, we're treated to innovative and exciting effects. Tremors 4 is a nod to the great horror and adventure films of he past. It's obvious how much passion the cast and crew put into this.
I'm a big fan of "Buffy," so I love the way this story blends humor, scares, action and the mythology of past films. If you've seen the other films, there are a ton of jokes and reference that you'll love here.
Tremors 4 is great entertainment for any monster fan.

We live around the lone pine area where some of the film was shot in the Alabama Hills. The line pine film history museum still has a tremors display to date which my girlfriend and I visited not long back. Very fitting seeing as how both of us are tremors movie fans. The museum in lone pine also gives tours of filming locations that you will recognize from the movie. If your on vacation through this area take a stop in. Neither of us where disappointed even though we maybe be bias toward loving the films. There is so much more to the museum and my only regret is that I didn't have time to go through and read as much as I would have liked on the movies that where filmed out here. This is why I have a plan to go back and visit.

I like Tremors and have come to appreciate the beginning of the Legend. As usual, Michael Gross gives his characteristic excellent performance. I can recommend this film for all members of the family.

The film may be called Tremors 4, but this is very much a prequel to the three movies seen thus far and the TV Series. This film is set in 1889 pretty much 100 years before the events in the first film. In this film Hiram Gummer (Michael Gross aka Burt Gummer in the previous movies and series) a rich, high class snob who owns the silver mines. Its here that the Legend begins as whilst mining the workers employed by Hiram stumble upon the origins of the Grapoids, and subsequently begin to disapear. Hiram can't get the local town people of Rejection to help him kill the Grapoids preventing him from mining, so he has to hire a lean guman. Black Hand Kelly arrives in town, collects his fee and then with Hiram sets about taking on the Grapoids.

This is a good film and a vast improvement over the poor series and the very low budget third movie. Michael Gross is on the ball again, playing the Great Grandfather of his better known Character Burt. The film does well to show the change in character of the Gummer's, from snooty businessmen to crazed gun-loving hunters. Also the fact the film moves away from the heavy CGI use seen in the TV Show and 3rd Film and goes back to the Anamatronic Puppet effects seen in the first two films does a lot to make the action more believable and steer it back towards the first movies quality.

The only slight downers with the film would be its slow start and the action seens are a little on the short side. Another thing I didn't like is that with this being a 'Straight to Video' production it has a low budget so the cast is pretty much as cheap as possible, so there is some really bad acting. However it didn't stop me from enjoying this film as I have the others in the series. I can only hope they keep the stories coming and hope for Tremors 5.
