Sharknado The 4th Awakens review

When I reviewed Sharknado: The 4th Awakens I tried to keep it spoiler-free. When I interviewed director Anthony C. Ferrante, who has helmed all four Sharknado movies to date, there were a few specific things I wanted to discuss. He said it was okay, because if you’ve watched the trailers, most of it is in there. So spoiler warning for anyone who is still avoiding the Sharknado 4 trailers.

As the subtitle suggests, there is a parodic Star Wars reference or two, and the trailer even gives away that there’s an opening crawl. Hey, Sharknado 3 opened like a James Bond movie. Twitter voted on #AprilLives or #AprilDies after Sharknado 3, and it’s no secret that Tara Reid is back. However, the film picks up five years after the cliffhanger scene on the beach at the end of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! Now Aston Reynolds (Tommy Davidson) has devised a way to eliminate tornados, but the sharks find their way into other weather phenomena. Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) is still the only man who can stop them.

If you have to ask what Sharknado is about, perhaps it’s time to brush up on your reading skills. The title may be an ungainly combination of “shark” and “tornado,” but it does get the idea across.

But who cares about the story? There’s a tornado full of sharks. As the poster says, enough said. Now there’s a trailer, which you can see below.
