Ian Ziering in Sharknado (2013)


After a series of weather warnings a hurricane hits Los Angeles but this is one with extra bite as it sucks up sharks from the sea and dumps them down into the flooding city. Surfer Fin (Ian Ziering) along with his friends set out to save his estranged wife April (Tara Reid) and this daughter Claudia (Aubrey Peeples) who live on the other side of town.

I would question anyone who said they watched "Sharknado" because they wanted to watch an exciting shark movie as it screams out bad movie before you even start. Yet "Sharknado" has to be the best bad movie ever made which entertains from start to finish with poor effects, poor editing, poor dialogue, poor characters basically everything about it is poor with maybe the exception of a few recognizable faces amongst the cast.

But come on what is there not to love about a movie which features sharks flying through the air and coming down in the city because of a storm. And what is there not to love about the terrible camera work which makes it very evident that Ian Ziering is not paddling out on his board into the ocean. And what is there not to love about attractive bikini clad women running on the beach, oh come on like you didn't expect to see bikini clad women bouncing on the beach in a disaster movie about sharks. Everything you could want and some things you couldn't even imagine happen in "Sharknado" and it is all bad, entertaining bad and that is it.

What this all boils down to is that "Sharknado" is bad but it is so outrageous it is the best bad movie you will ever watch with everything about it especially the terrible continuity and special effects making you smile.
