THE PLOT THUS FAR
When a Category 7 hurricane pummels New York, the surging flood waters bring thousands of sharks. To make matters worse, tornadoes soon dot the horizon. As Sharknadoes tear through the city, no vehicle, building, or national monument is safe.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Sharknado 2: The Second One” fulfills the promise that studios like Troma and its ilk promised for years. One day, Hollywood would look upon its mighty piles of shit and say WHY NOT US. This is a movie built by on shared jokes, communal humor and an abundance of cameos. That being said, if it was good enough for American International, then why not bring it back? I’ll take my creature features any way that I can get them. Don’t tell me that a haunted porcelain doll is horror now!
Sharks are cool. Natural disasters are cool as long as they don’t happen to you. Put them together and some FX wizard gets to work that weird death and destruction boner out over basic cable. SyFy should count their lucky stars that they have something of this caliber after they ran off Ronald Moore. This is your new “Battlestar Galactica”, SyFy. I know that a third movie is arriving in 2015, but I need a sidequel series. Then, a prequel. I want an evolution of the Sharknado series. I want to see Manta Ray Monsoons. I want it all and I want it now! These are the best kinds of movies, because they appeal to your Id and America doesn’t get that enough in films.
The Blu-Ray comes with commentaries, featurettes, gag reel, FX reel and trailers as the special features. The A/V Quality is astounding for something like this. The 1080p transfer is pretty dynamic. Plus, the DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track will make you believe in the power of the Sharknado. In the end, it’s worth a purchase for you schlubs.
