If someone would’ve told me back in 2013 that the Sy-Fy channels original movie Sharknado would’ve spawned not only a sequel but a threequel I would’ve laughed so hard that I would’ve fallen out of my high speed fighter jet. But low and behold in 2015 we were treated to Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

Premiering a few months back now I’ve finally had the pleasure (displeasure) of catching this increasingly crazy fish and continuing on the J and E Sharknado tradition, I will eschew a usual review of this film and merely lay down a few reasons as to why you should catch this utterly terrible film that ramps up the crazy to all new levels and at times is just so downright dumb it’s impossible not to enjoy yourself.

  • One of the film’s opening scenes sees returning “star” Ian Ziering’s Fin collect an award of the American president, a title of which is The Order of the Golden Chainsaw.
  • The other entries into the series invented some pretty novel ways of ending sharks lives but a shark being ended by a vacuum cleaner in this film just about takes the cake.
  • Other weapons of choice throughout the film include; flag poles, paintings, statues and even the earth’s atmosphere.
  • Thought the cast of Sharknado couldn’t get any more Z list? Well joining our main man Ian Ziering and the natural looking Tara Reid we now have one time pin up girl Bo Derek, David “the Hoff” Hasselhoff and perhaps the best of all Malcom in the Middle’s very own Frankie Muniz who unfortunately hasn’t grown up an inch since he TV star days.
  • The Sharknado scripts have always been filled with Pulitzer Prize worthy dialogue but a line where Cassie Scerbo’s Nova mentions that she has “post traumatic shark disorder” just about takes the cake.
  • Worthy of mentioning twice, Tara Reid this time gets to sport a mini chainsaw in place of her chewed off hand and she puts it to good use in the films downright bonkers final scenes!
  • You want celebratory cameos? Then wow does Sharknado 3 deliver! D-list singer Ne-Yo, one time NSYNC member Chris Kirkpatrick, one time politician Anthony Weiner, Jerry Springer “Jerry, Jerry Jerry”, one time Hulk Lou Ferrigno, Subway’s Jared Fogle before everyone hated him and perhaps best of all Game of Thrones author George R.R Martin as an unfortunate cinema goer.
  • Without spoiling the movie’s plot for the diehards, there’s a birth that takes place in Sharknado 3 that just may be the best birth in feature film history.

Now if these few points aren’t enough to convince you of all the merits of this incredibly insane third shark filled entry to the franchise then I fear you may never understand the joys of witnessing such an atrociously made yet entertaining piece of shark meat such as this.

With space sharks, a NASCAR showpiece, Universal Studio plugs and enough shark carnage to fill a boatload of Jaws, Sharknado 3 continues on the series mantras and we can now just look forward to entry number 4 even though we all know this series should really be put to rest, at the deepest darkest depths of the ocean.
