As storm clouds gather, chainsaw-wielding Sharknado hunter Ian Ziering (as Finley "Fin" Shepard) runs to collect an award from the US President. A "Sharknado" hits town and destroys many landmarks in Washington, DC, including the White House. Escaping the "worst sharknado" since the first one, according to the NBC-TV news anchors, Mr. Ziering escapes. Ziering looks very muscular; he must work out. Meanwhile, his sometimes wife Tara Reid (as April Wexler) is in Universal's Orlando, Florida amusement park. She is pregnant and receives motherly advice from mother Bo Derek (as May Wexler). Insert the "still beautiful" notation regarding Ms. Derek, as needed. As the sharks thicken, Ziering re-encounters partner Cassie Scerbo (as Nova Clarke), who is hanging around with mechanic/bodyguard Frankie Muniz (as Lucas Stevens). Ziering and the "Sharknado" head for Florida and all hell breaks loose...
Syfy's "Sharknado" disaster TV Movie series is officially getting long in the tooth. The first two were much more fun.
"Sharknado" (2013) used humor to effectively poke fun at itself. "Sharknado 2" (2014) acknowledged that, connecting with viewers who watched the first one to have fun. All were directed by Anthony C. Ferrante, who may be hampered by formula demands from the studio. This one retreads old material (from various disaster films) and loses much of the "laughing at itself" appeal so prevalent in the second movie. New is an interactive chance for the viewer to "kill off" a leading character. This gimmick was used by DC Comics' "Batman" (#427, 1988). The "Sharknado" character in question doesn't do much, anyway. The music is up to par. David Hasselhoff is a promising, but unimaginative addition. A former "Malcolm in the Middle" child star, Mr. Muniz catches the "Sharknado" spirit perfectly; he is the best supporting actor. The movie's most grievous error is not serving Ann Coulter a richly deserved fate.
