As if the second shark-infused tornado in Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) wasn't enough, yet a third one hammers Washington, D.C., just when battle-scarred Fin was about to receive the prestigious Medal of Honour from the President himself. With the White House completely levelled and the capital in lock-down, Fin embarks on a dangerous journey to Florida's Universal Orlando Resort to find April, as an unstoppable swarm of violent mini-sharknadoes swiftly converge into one giant meteorological monster that threatens to obliterate the entire East Coast. Now, April, Nova Clarke, and Fin's estranged father, Gil Shepard, must come up with an effective strategy to destroy the pitiless atmospheric menace with the thousands of teeth. However, this time, it's a do-or-die situation. Is there a plan B, or is this the end of the world as we know it? Written by Nick Riganas

Sharknado 3 (2015)

** (out of 4)

Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) is at the White House receiving a honor from the President of the United States (Mark Cuban) when another storm comes in carrying more sharks. After the attack Fin plans to make it to Florida to meet his pregnant wife (Tara Reid) and her mother (Bo Derek) but of course a bigger storm with even more sharks is brewing.

SHARKNADO pretty much came out of no where and did got moderate ratings but it set social media on fire and eventually became a cult film. Obviously a sequel was to follow and with its big ratings we now have this third film in the series. I think the biggest problem with SHARKNADO 3 is that they made it campy, silly and stupid on purpose and this really isn't how cult movies work. No, PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE and other "so bad they're good" movies work so well because their directors tried making something great and fell short. SHARKNADO was an attempt to make a serious film but it failed.

With the two sequels going for straight camp, the films aren't nearly as entertaining and I think the entire scenario is getting a little tiresome. After all, there's really nothing that happens here that we didn't see before. You can only see sharks falling from the sky so many times and the same could be said for a chainsaw ripping them up. For the most part the film remains slightly entertaining simply because of how dumb it is. Ziering and Reid offers decent performances and of course there's some wink cameos throughout. David Hasselhoff plays the father and we even have Cassie Scerbo and Frankie Muniz. Bo Derek is looking amazing at her age so it was nice seeing her here.

SHARKNADO 3 is a bad movie but it's one of those on purpose. Fans of the first two will want to check it out but lets hope they do something fresh with the next one.
