Plot: When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, nature’s deadliest killer rules sea, land, and air as thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace.


Verdict: Entreatingly Delicious


Story: When you go into a film sometimes you just need to suspense your disbelief. This film is perfect example for that, it is a crazy storyline that comes off ridiculously entertaining. It’s not difficult to pick up its just simply sharks in tornadoes and a group of people trying to outrun them and save the city before it gets completely overrun. It is full of entertaining characters that other disaster films fail to create and by doing this you really don’t know who will get pick off next. Watch it as a fun film and you will enjoy. (7/10)


Actor Review


Ian Ziering: Fin champion surfer and bar owner who leads a group of survivors across the city to save his family, he knows how to predict the waves and counter sharks attacks. Good lead performance who lets the rest of the characters feed of his ideas.  (7/10)



Tara Reid: April Fin’s ex-wife who wants to keep him away from his family as she believes he is a let-down, but soon tags along for the ride being the downer character. Let’s face it Tara isn’t the best actress around and this performance shows why. (4/10)


John Heard: George a regular in Fin’s bar who leaves with his favorite bar stool, which turns into his weapon of choice against the sharks. He gets some funny lines in during his short spell with the group. (7/10)


Cassandra Scerbo: Nova one of Fin’s employees at the bar who also has a crush on him, when the sharks start to attack Nova is the one who kicks all their asses. Good performance turning what looks like an innocent naïve girl into a kick ass scene stealer. (8/10)



Jaason Simmons: Baz a friend of Fin’s who joins on the adventure, he is also a surfer and full of one liners. Good supporting performance offering a lot of comic relief. (7/10)
