This starts in the uttermost mindfucking conditions with dinos, sharks and characters we presumed dead. If the previous films are vague in your mind, this will be a very confusing adventure. It’s the final movie, apparently, and it ties some loose ends while complicating things. From the transgendered wizard to the Back to the Future references, you’re going to have to make efforts to keep up.
The film is so dense it is practically impossible to follow, and that, ironically, is its main attraction. Epileptics, beware; this movie won’t go easy on you. There is an unimaginable amount of chroma keying in this, making every action scene look fake but allowing the craziest post-production effects. The green screen density is only surpassed by the number of puns and one-liners.
Several celebrities play small roles: Neil deGrasse Tyson, Dee Snider, Tori Spelling, Gilbert Gottfried, and many more. First, we visit the prehistoric era, then the Middle Ages, followed by the Wild West, then the 1950’s, 1997, for obscure reasons, followed by nothing less than a distant, post-apocalyptic future. Ultimately, Sharknado 6 is exactly what you’d expect... and nothing more.
