Critic Reviews for Sharknado 2: The Second One

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (16)

The perfect marriage of outlandish concept, amateurish acting and middling production values.

The creators of last year's surprise cult hit repeat the magic of their first outing.

Ridiculousness. Super-ridiculousness. Mega-ridiculousness. Meta-ridiculousness. Love. Fireworks.

Because they put the pedal to the metal and go full, screaming, bedazzled monkeypants crazy from beginning to end, it sort of works.

Kind of hilarious. Kind of silly. Mostly a game of spot-the-cameo players and teasing about what moment a certain chainsaw will come in contact with certain bodies.

"Sharknado" was far from the most amateurish of the Syfy originals, but it had a "Let's put on a show" roughness. "Sharknado 2" at times threatens to look like a real movie.

Audience Reviews for Sharknado 2: The Second One

I was never expecting Sharknado 2 to be good, and it wasn't. But I also never expected it to be an improvement on the first, and it was. I mean in the grand scheme of things that's not exactly an achievement, but it's pretty odd to think that a second film with the subtitle "The Second One" would actually elevate the franchise somewhat.

After the first was garbage but fun, This one loses its newness and was exactly the same just set in New York, It seemed to focus more on how many minor celebrities can make cameos than anything and even most of them struggled to act as themselves not to mention the rest of the cast were pretty awful too, The effects were a tiny bit better but still bad, I found myself looking at how long the film had left than anything.

Do not watch this sequel unless you know what you are in for. Having basically the same premise as it's predecessor, it doesn't do anything clever that we didn't already see in the previous film. The fact that these films are so self-aware kind of begins to really work against it, creating a sense of dullness to everything surrounding it. "Sharknado 2: The Second One" is filled with horrible dialogue, terrible visuals, and dumb action scenes, and even though they are intentional, I was not laughing much. Both of these films fail to do what they set out to, which is spoof the horror genre in a ridiculous way, because it is making fun of itself as people are making fun of it as a whole, and that is terrible filmmaking. Not only do I hate these movies, but even by guilty pleasure standards, these do not need to be made. Just stop now. Sure these films have their fan base, but that is due to the fact that people enjoy terrible movies. Let them enjoy genuinely terrible films then, you do not need to make them on purpose.
