Literally, the final addition to the Sharknado family is about time. Sharknado 5 ended in a sharkpocolypse. The world had ended, everyone was dead except for our hero Fin Shepard. Movie 6 picks up exactly where 5 left off: Dolph Lundgren, playing a time-traveling version of Fin’s son, picks up Fin and sends Fin back in time.
Guess where he goes? Prehistoric times! So we get… dinosaurs and a sharknado together. I could have stayed in sharknado dinotopia for days.
Fin meets up with dead friends and his dead wife in dinoland. They ride around on dinos and take a pterodactyl into Camelot times where Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi) and Neal deGrasse Tyson assist Fin and his posse in getting past ‘dragon sharks’. Of course, the pterodactyl is called a dragon, too. It makes perfect sharknado sense.
We travel to the American Revolution, to the American Wild West (where Dee Snyder is sheriff), and to the future where there are robot sharks. Fin’s wife has become an evil robot queen hell-bent on revenge.
If you watch Sharknado for it to make sense, you’ll be disappointed. If you watch for the sheer mindlessness and silliness of it, you’ll enjoy it as much as its predecessors.
There wasn’t as high of a body count in this Sharknado, but the time travel was fun. The dinosaurs were a major bonus, in my opinion. I also really enjoyed when they put the robot April’s head in a shark’s mouth. That was pure genius.
Don’t know what I’ll do next year without another Sharknado to look forward to. I had made it into a yearly holiday… Sharknado Day. All the same, thanks to The Asylum and Thunder Levin for 6 years of sharky, cheesy fun. I loved every minute.
Sharknado 6 gets a 1 beer rating, just because beer and Sharknadoes go together. As far as fun and silly movies go, I don’t know if anything will ever be as wonderful as the Sharknado series. The Asylum is still making movies, though, so there’s hope for something even more ridiculously spectacular to come.
