Set 5 years after Oh Hell No! (2015), a Sharknado hits Las Vegas. Now Fin and the gang must find a new way to put a stop to these bizarre natural disasters.
So it turns out the Sharknado franchise has some pride after all. In part 4 we’ve got sand-nados, oil-nados, fire-nados and even cow-nados. But notice how they made damn sure to stay away from any fertilised fields or sewage tanks…
Speaking of floating turds, how annoying is Fin Jr.’s character? The shame is, it’s not the poor little guy’s fault! This chapter showcases the series’ best CGI effects to date, and they couldn’t spend some of that extra dough on a decent writer? Of course not! And so instead we are left with a handful of shit Wizard of Oz (1939) gags and a weather-worn Fin Jr. having nothing better to do than scream, “Daaaaaad!” for the longest minute in recent memory.
Once again, Tara Reid is there, inexplicably. And once again her inclusion has absolutely no effect on the “plot” whatsoever. Crucifixes and cat-like hisses at the ready! Jedward also return. Just as blonde and just as pointless. The best of the cameos is hands down, Caroline Williams, who also has the best line in the movie.
It should be well-established by now that these movies have the believability of a Jerry Springer episode, or a football injury. But the closing few minutes not only push it, they blast it off a fucking cliff. It just has to be seen to be registered. Then again, I’ve yet to see a single Asylum movie where I don’t look over at my viewing companion(s) and scoff, “What is this shit?!”
It took me until part 3 to get the joke that is the Sharknado phenomenon. And now that I have it, I no longer want it.
