Sharknado Week: Sharknado 2 The Second One – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
As you would probably expect Sharknado 2 is either the best film you’ve ever seen or the worst film ever made – depending on if you found the first one as genius as I did.  From Evil Dead references (several in fact) to off the hook performances, the worst CGI you have ever seen and an opening sequence so utterly stupid that it rates as possibly the best sequence in a film in 2014, Sharknado knows it’s dumb and naff.  And that’s kinda why it works.  It never takes itself seriously, relishes in it’s own stupidity and places it’s tongue firmly in cheek… which is exactly why this is one of the most enjoyable films of 2014 so far.

It aint the Godfather… but it also aint Tranfourhours 4.  Which is something to be grateful for.

Best Bit: Sharks On A Plane

Buy, Rent, Stream, Borrow: Buy

If You Liked this Try: Sharknado, Snakes On A Plane; Giant Something vs Mega whatever (pick the something and whatever)


Rating: 10 out of 10 stars
