Ian Ziering in Sharknado (2013)


After a series of weather warnings a hurricane hits Los Angeles but this one comes with extra bite as it sucks up sharks from the sea and dumps them down into the flooding city. Fin (Ian Ziering - Kidnapped: 48 Hours of Terror), a surfer, along with his friends set out to save his estranged wife, April (Tara Reid - American Reunion), and their 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 one of the best bad movies ever made which entertains from start to finish with poor special effects, poor editing, poor dialogue, and 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 caught up in hurricane winds and dumped down in a flooded Los Angeles. 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 running 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, entertainingly bad and that is it.

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