Tremors 5: Bloodlines (2015) Review
Tremors 5: Bloodlines (2015) is an American sci-fi action horror movie that is the fifth film in the Tremors series. Director Don Michael Paul (The Island (2005), Half Past Dead (2002), Who’s Your Caddy? (2007), Robot Wars (1993)) did a great job at executing this movie to be better from a few previous films in its series. The movie contains a few thrills, hard to kill Graboids, suspense, comedy, plot holes, twist, bad language, gore, violence, graphic scenes and man-eating/killing creatures.
Burt Gummer (Michael Gross - Family Ties (1982), Tremors (1990), Tremors 3: Back to Perfection (2001), Tremors 4: The Legend Begins (2004)) star’s in his survivalist series. His series takes place in Perfection. Basson (Lawrence Joffe - Black Sails (2014), Winnie Mandela (2011), The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2001)) falls into a hole and is soon after killed by an unknown creature while hunting in South Africa with Johan Dreyer. Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy - Malibu’s Most Wanted (2003), Three Kings (1999), Son of the Mask (2005), Scream (1996)) becomes Burt’s new camera operator. Erick Van Wyk from Africa Wildlife Ministry told Burt about their Ass-Blaster problem. Burt and Travis agree to go to Africa to hunt the Ass-Blaster’s/Graboids because of the huge pay they will receive. Burt and his team set up camp at the refuge in Africa and meet a few females. Burt later explains that the Graboids in Africa is of a different breed, and I was like ding, that’s why they look different on this movie. The Ass-Blasters in Africa are tougher and takes a bit more effort to kill than the ones in North America. Travis is too head over heels for the new chicks he met and forgets his curfew and was not there for when Burt needed him the most. Burt was fighting off Graboids while Travis was having fun - not a good team work in my book. After a few events, Burt was backstabbed by one of his team members who is really interested in the Graboids eggs because he is a poacher.
I was in disbelief when I saw the Graboids and how unrealistic they look, they were ok, but the original Graboids from the original Tremors realism surpasses the Graboids seen in this movie. The Graboids in this movie are CGI whereas the original Graboids were done with practical effects. The story/screenplay feels slightly different (South Africa) from the other sequels, and it has some new amazing twists to the Graboid mythology. I loved the natural landscapes and wildlife, and those scenes were the most enjoyable scenes for me and the comedy throughout.
