Ian Ziering in Sharknado 5: Global Swarming (2017)

Vortex of a Sharknado

With Sharknados and the chaotic array of storms which accompany them threatening destruction across the planet; Fin (Ian Ziering - Christmas in Palm Springs), April (Tara Reid - A Royal Christmas Ball) and his friends are in much demand all over the planet as the threat of a global sharknado grows ever stronger. But when their young son gets caught up in a Sharknado which whisks him away it becomes much more personal than just saving the planet as they end up travelling from one country to the next to try and rescue him.

Having just watched and reviewed "Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens" I thought I would just get it out of the way and get "Sharknado 5: Global Swarming" done at the same time because how much worse can it get. Well as a Brit I have to say that "Sharknado 5: Global Swarming" is a painful experience with the action taking us to London to start with and with Buckingham Palace amongst other things in danger of being hit. What that means is we have more horrendous scene ideas from Fin leading the royal guards on an attack to some shark surfing down the stairs in Buckingham Palace. Heck there are even the female presenters of the ITV breakfast show involved in this nonsense as well as cameos for the likes of Samantha Fox, Louie Spence and Katie Price. And it isn't just the UK which gets the Sharknado do over because are heroes end up hitting a few other countries including Australia

The simplest thing I can say about "Sharknado 5: Global Swarming" is that it is very much on par with "Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens" and although it takes us out of the States and a whistle stop tour of the globe, sort of, what you get is the usual formula. That means we have ridiculous action, cheesy cameos and even cheesier dialogue which will either make you groan and laugh or simply groan and wonder why some of the actors agreed to do this movie.

What this all boils down to is that if you have enjoyed the nonsense of the third and fourth "Sharknado" movies there is as much chance you will enjoy the nonsense of "Sharknado 5: Global Swarming" as well. But for those who have started to find these movies weak and just groan worthy are likely to find this fifth movie in the series as bad as the last one.
