When I wrote about the Sharknado trailer this week, I said there was no was no way on earth I'd be watching this cinematic masterpiece.
Well, as I'm sure it will with plenty of others, curiosity got the best of me. Even though I've watched it and am writing about it, I'm still not quite sure if it was a good idea.
Let's go ahead and tackle the incredibly deep, complex plot of Sharknado. See, there are sharks, and these sharks find themselves sucked up into a hurricane and the subsequent tornados the hurricane spawns.
And then... nope, that's it. That is the entire plot.
Wait, there was an early scene in which we are party to an illegal shark fin poaching operation. Complete with man of presumable Asian descent there to purchase said shark fins.
At first I thought, oh, this might be a statement on the awfulness of shark fin harvesting. No. Apparently that was just the best way the writers could think of launching into this story.
How on earth can this be anything but spectacular?
