Sharknado 2: The Second One Review


Fin and April are on their way to New York, until a Category 7 Hurricane spawns heavy rain, storm surges and deadly Sharknadoes.

Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) is an American horror sci-fi disaster film that is a sequel to the Sharknado (2013), the second installment in the Sharknado series and is followed by Sharknado 3 (2015). Director Anthony C. Ferrante (Sharknado (2013), Boo (2005)) did an exceptional job executing this fun shark movie. I enjoyed the movie with sharks flying everywhere and snarling up innocent victims. The film contains thrills, suspense, excitement, bloody deaths by jaws, chaos, tension, mild language and scenes that might be frightening to the younger audience.

Sharknado 2: The Second One revolves around Fin Shepard ( Ian Ziering - Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990), Guiding Light (1952), Sharknado (2013), Godzilla: The Series (1998)) trying to save New York City from a shark attack. Fin and his ex-wife April Wexler ( Tara Reid - The Big Lebowski (1998), American Pie (1999), Van Wilder: Party Liaison (2002), American Pie 2 (2001)) are seen flying to New York City. They were on their way to promote April’s book, How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters until airborne sharks attack the plane causing it to lose an engine. Those large sharks ripped through the plane killing almost everyone and chewed off April’s hand while she tried to shoot the shark.

Fin tried to warn everyone about the impending storm and to his surprise, no one believed him. Fin took April to the hospital and called Ellen Brody ( Kari Wuhrer - Eight Legged Freaks (2002), Anaconda (1997), Sliders (1995), Hellraiser: Deader (2005)) who is sightseeing with her family in New York. Fin told her to meet him at the Bales Tower Hotel and that she will get her husband Martin (Mark McGrath - Hooters 2012 International Swimsuit Pageant (2012), Killer Karaoke (2012), Extra (1994), Scooby-Doo (2002)) and her son Vaughn from the Mets game. I was entertained from the beginning to the ending of this film because I kept an open mind and did not follow the storyline much and overlooked the plot holes. I watched the movie for the shark attacks, action, and thrills and was happy. Sharks fall into the stadium and start killing people, but Fin and a few others made makeshift weapons to kill the sharks as they encourage everyone to take shelter in the subway.

With all lot the good things said above, I am afraid that I will have to be fair and give this movie a three because it had several flaws. I enjoyed the movie because it was a late night mindless watch. If I was looking at this film because it had a great storyline, great acting, minor plot holes, good CGI, good sound and other things, then I will have to give it a three because it did not have any of those.
