Shark­nado to re­turn with se­quel

Winnipeg Free Press - SundayXtra - - ENTERTAINMENT -

WELL, Shark­nado 3: Oh Hell No! has come (and gone, ex­cept for in­nu­mer­able re­runs).

The idea of sharks show­er­ing down on Washington, D.C., had a cer­tain charm — what, no Ot­tawa ver­sion? — but many crit­ics are say­ing the se­ries has, er, jumped the shark. The first two are so bad they’re good, but this one was just dreary, or so I read.

Dead­line.com called it an “orgy of bad spe­cial ef­fects and campy cameos.” Los An­ge­les Times tele­vi­sion critic Robert Lloyd wrote, “Hav­ing now watched Shark­nado 3: Oh Hell No!, I find my­self in the po­si­tion of hav­ing to write about it. And I am not sure which is worse.”

Still, there will in­deed be a fourth in­stal­ment, pro­duc­ers said. The third one ends with a cliffhanger — will Tara Reid’s char­ac­ter April live or die? — and view­ers are in­vited to vote at syfy.com/shark­nado3.
