Only heard about the first film over a few weeks ago after my sister was talking about cheesy movies like Snakes on a Plane and Piranha 3D plus mentioned my sister how bad FoodFight! was; Heard about Sharknado from a few people I know as well and managed to watch the first film on TV not so long away then finding out a sequel was going to be shown on TV this month and a DVD release.
So is Sharknado 2 as bad and funny as the first one you may ask? The answer is yes the last film was set in Los Angeles this time the Sharknado makes an impact on the city of New York. Most people would understand that freak weather system would mess up a lot of things in general; however the weather system turns New York into a shark-infested city, with great whites chomping through crowds near some of the Big Apple's most iconic landmarks. Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, who play April and Fin in the far-fetched film, hatch various plans to save the city, including slashing the sharks with chainsaws and impaling the creatures on the Empire State Building.
The idea on making both movies like these are silly and insane it’s like looking at other movies and games like Lollipop Chainsaw which had a ridiculous story plot but still an enjoyable game to play. That is what the Sharknado series tries to do make a story plot that is ridiculous and very cheesy with puns added in. The CGI animation on the sharks is still the same as it was in the first film and also randomly attacking and eating people, the best and funniest moment was around at the beginning where the Sharknado starts striking an airplane in the middle of a stormy night and the sharks just end up attack the passengers and the pilots. Later in the film gets even more insane when entering the city of New York and half the time you would be wondering what the heck is going on here? However the sequel is worth the watch if you liked the first film and looking for some laughs with friends or family but might not be everyone's taste when it comes to disaster movies and does tend to drag a little bit but lots of cheesy and corny moments throughout.
3/5 (3 star rating)
