Sharknado - Phil's Five Words for Films

Sharknado Sometimes a film can be so ridiculously ludicrous that it just grabs you by the funny bone and it transcends all logic and defies all the usual rules. Sharknado is definitely one of those films. A super storm heads towards the west coast of America, pulling sharks from the ocean and dumping thousands of them on the unprepared citizens of coastal L.A. Every part of the film is awful. The premise, the script, the editing, the acting, the special effects, the science, the physics and even the laws of gravity are all terrible, so terrible that they are laughable. Therein lies the unintended brilliance. At no point
does the film make any sense but it just doesn't matter. If you watch the film to laugh along then it is a riot, a film that it so bad it will go down as a classic for years to come. If you have seen 'Starship Troopers' or 'The Room' then you will know what I mean. Terrible in every respect but somehow thoroughly enjoyable. In a world where swimming pools explode, water flows up hill and sharks can 'swim' in thin air, this is the worst film that I would definitely recommend you watch. It is either a 1 out of 10 or an 9 out of 10 depending on your frame of mind, but if you can't find something here to cheer you up, there is something wrong with you. Let's chainsaw a shark and blow up a tornado!! Fantastic.

1 or 9 out of 10. You decide.
Cert 15 (uk). 90mins.
