Plot
What’s worse than being attacked by sharks and tornadoes at once? Bad CG and a dumb script! The essential plot is fully covered in the first fifteen minutes and the rest is an unrealistic thriller based on a silly premise. Don’t expect a tornado filled with flying sharks from beginning to end. What you get, instead, is an urban adventure film in a flooded and shark-infested city plus 3 twisters.
Ian Ziering and Tara Reid make wonders with a semi-spoof of the much better horror film Jaws. Leave your brain at the door and you might appreciate this movie for what it is: an ongoing inside joke that strives to live up to its title. Like the actors, venture tongue in cheek and you might enjoy yourself. Get your hopes high or take it seriously and you’ll hate your experience.
The third act is the best one, the funniest one, and almost redeems this ludicrous sharkfest. The characters then get their long overdue exposition covered. The protagonists get melodramatic as they prepare to fight back the sharknadoes the only way that makes sense: with handguns, shotguns, a chainsaw and bombs. Keep this one for parties and lower your expectations.
