Sharknado (2013)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

3 / 10
This movie is a fucking disgrace. I think it would have been better if they didn't try to dial-up the crazy on absolutely everything. The ridiculous plot is okay to have if it had been accompanied by some seriousness in other areas to balance things out but instead they just layer ridiculous plot, on top of ridiculous effects, on top of ridiculously unbelievable acting and stunts. Think of other movies from the It's so bad, its good' category, usually they're amusing because there's a lot of ridiculousness layered over what was an attempt to make something serious but here, it's just let's make everything fucking ridiculous and stupid.

While the movie may hold some value if you watched it with friends or if you were wasted... I usually don't watch movies while I am under either of the influences and so thus, I cannot recommend Sharknado.
Sharknado (2013)
Review by Michael Mahoney

6 / 10
Well, The Asylum comes out swinging with the beginning of one of the most ridiculous franchises imaginable, Sharknado. Honestly, the film is sort of fun, but in that rather awful way you come to expect from Syfy atrocities. I've seen this once before, and God forgive me, I'll probably see it again, but the movie isn't at all good, as many would expect.

There are a few strong cast members, though. I'm not a giant fan of the main character, played by Ian Ziering, but I did like both Cassandra Scerbo and Jason Simmons. I don't know Simmons from anything else, but Scerbo starred in another rather awful Syfy flick titled Bering Sea Beast. She's a fun addition here, and along with Simmons, makes Sharknado worth watching. I will admit, though, I do like Ziering's character, if not the actor, especially during his more heroic portions.

Of course, the special effects here are just really awful. So is the plot. And so is mostly everything. Sharknado's strength lies in the fact that, beneath what a mess the film is, you can certainly have fun with the film if you're so inclined, and I've apparently been inclined both times I've seen this.

I can't speak for any of the many sequels (to date, there are five following this one), but I can say that I enjoyed this one to an extent, and though I've rated it somewhat lowly, I don't have any really big issue watching this again in the future. It's far from a good movie, but as I have fun watching it, how much does that really matter? 5.5/10 (rounded up to 6/10 to fit site's format).
