Sharknado: The 4th Awakens (2016)

I guess I don't have to explain what Sharknado is. If you don't know what it is you can read my reviews of first movie, second movie and third movie. Third movie started to be painfully bad. Fourth movie is bad but it is not as bad mess as third movie was.

Sharknado: The 4th Awakens happens five years after third movie. There is sharknado prevention technology everywhere. It can stop sharknados but this time they don't have regular sharknados. Whole story is build around what-ever-sharknados. There are sandsharknados, firesharknados and nuclearsharknados.

Movie tries to get low budget aesthetics. Some shots have no post processing, some lack color grading. Effects look terrible. I wouldn't be surprised if this was cheaper to made than third movie. It might also be that they tried to get low budget look on high budget. Third movie was mess where they threw everything they could think. This one stays better together. In is still senseless running but it is not all over the place.

SyFy and Asylum can make these every year and get enough audience to justify next movie. They just make movie they think audience want to see. We watch these movies to see what insanity they have this time. It doesn't matter how good or bad the movie is. We will watch them anyway. Sharknado movies are like chain restaurant hamburgers - you know what you will get and know if you like it or not even before watching the movie.
