What can possibly be said about Sharknado that hasn’t already been said? It’s all in the title: it’s a tornado, but sharks. That’s the start, the middle and the end. It’s hard to fathom that we live in a world where such a thing as a Sharknado franchise exists, but this is in fact the first of six Sharknado films, and the only one which tries to maintain at least a semblance of seriousness. But the over-the-top acting, campy dialogue, and the whole “tornado, but sharks” thing obviously mean no one else is taking it seriously. It includes bombs being thrown into sharks from a helicopter, after all. No wonder it spawned five sequels.
