Plot: A freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April can save the Big Apple.


Verdict: It’s Back, Bigger, Bader and Hungrier


Story: Same story different city, this time we have two separate parts of one family trying to reach one certain point in New York while it is being battered by Sharknadoes. We get the same group which are full of disposable members while keeping the key people alive. We have the ridiculous kills with most bring a laugh and a full range of every day weapons to take on the sharks. This isn’t designed to be outstanding quality it is there to entertain so watch light hearted and you will enjoy. Big negative though, No Nova or mention of their children from the first one. (7/10)


Actor Review


Ian Ziering: Fin living as the hero of LA he is struggling to deal with the popularity and nightmares, but when the next storm comes along he steps up to save the day again. Good performance showing more charisma than the first film. (8/10)


Tara Reid: April having survived the first film she has written a book about what happened and started to rekindle the love with Fin, but once she loses her hand in a shark attack she spends most of the film on her own. How does she keep returning to these films? (3/10)


Vivica A Fox: Skye old friend of Fin who has always been in love with him and will follow him through anything. Good supporting performance bringing a little bit more attitude to the role. (7/10)


Mark McGrath: Martin old friend and brother in law to Fin, they used to run things back in the day but have lost connection due to a disagreement; he is all work which leaves his family sometimes coming second. Good performance that never really reaches the heights of Baz from the first one. (6/10)


Kari Wuhrer: Ellen Fin’s sister who has to race across Manhattan to get to safety along with her daughter, resourceful lady. Good supporting performance that seems to play the role a bit too serious though. (7/10)


Director Review: Anthony C. Ferrante – It entertains, it makes you laugh, it has mental action what more can a director do? (7/10)


Horror: Sharks in Tornadoes how scared are you? (8/10)

Thriller: Having multiply people trying to get to safety adds a thrilling side to this film, instead of just one large group. (8/10)

Settings: New York always a great setting for a destruction film. (9/10)
