Now, when I heard there was going to be a Sharknado 2, I
was skeptical from the get-go. I very so
much didn’t like the first one and I knew a sequel that would come out barely
over a year later would not have much effort to it.
And I reluctantly saw this TV movie. And if
I refused to see it, my friends probably would have forced me to watch it
anyhow. Some of my friends claim some
films are “junkfood movies,” meaning you still enjoy them despite them being
bad. To this day I’m still trying to see
if that logic is possible for me.
So this time the film only is Ian Ziering and Tara Reid as returning cast members. Their characters Finn and April are heading to New York to meet Ian’s sister and his in-laws. On the plane ride there, their plane wanders into the new sharknado. And the storm is on its way to New York.
I’m going to rate individual stats for this movie.
Characters: The characters are bland and uninteresting. Even though I saw the first one, I STILL forgot the names of Finn and April and had to look up their names on the Sharknado 2 Wikipedia page to remember them. Nothing about them sticks out or seems alive. When characters are dying, you really don’t feel that bad about their deaths because there was nothing of substance to them. The only character that was worth seeing was the cameo from Jared the Subway guy! (The movie would have been nothing without his cameo as a person waiting for a subway train…. Wait, did they try to make this a pun?!?!?) Even with Jared’s cameo, the character factor deserves a 1/10.
