Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: With few tricks up its sleeve, Sharknado only adds to the list of hysterical Syfy monster-dramas that make for a shamelessly brainless 90 minutes well-spent. – Jacqueline Andriakos, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 26, 2013

Fresh: And it happens, and it happens, and it's an awesome, immersive thing. – James Poniewozik, TIME Magazine, Jul 26, 2013

Fresh: Oh sure, it's easy to pick holes in a story about a weather system that makes it possible for sharks to fly and take to the streets, but that's the whole point of movies like this: fabulous in-home commentary. – Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times, Jul 26, 2013

Rotten: Sharknado was born to suck, but I'm hesitant to accuse its enthusiastic viewers of being rubes. The prime reason: I'm an enthusiastic viewer of it too. – Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, Oct 20, 2014

How the hell this got a 91% rating on rotten tomatoes is beyond me but this movie is terrible

The worst movie EVER

If you have watched this movie and if you like it, then you have something wrong in your head. It's the cheesiest movie ever


Yes, the movie is made by The Asylum. Yes, it has unbelievably cheesy special effects and atrocious acting from Tara Reid and the rest of the cast. But come on, people. It's called "Sharknado." There's no way anyone in the world can possibly take a film with a ridiculous name like that seriously. I actually ended up sitting through the whole thing and thought it was hilarious. As long as you take this shamelessly brainless SyFy movie for what it is, it's worth a one-time "guilty pleasure" watch.
