Survivors escape to a deserted atoll, after their boat during a Semester at Sea ship is sunk by a mutated two-headed shark. But when the atoll starts flooding, no one is safe from the double jaws of the monster.
A new mega shark threatens to destroy humanity. The government creates an exact robotic copy of the shark, either equal to or greater than the original. Now they must fight to the death while people and whole cities get in the way.
Emile Edwin Smith
It's been five years since the last Sharknado that devastated Washington, D.C. and the world is now benefiting from this hard-earned peace. Thankfully, Aston Reynolds' Astro-X tech company with their revolutionary atmosphere stabilisers called the Astro-Pods, has managed to eradicate all possible Sharknado formations before they could ever get the chance to grow in magnitude. However, while Fin is heading to Vegas for a family reunion, some fun and relaxation, in the meantime, menacing clouds are beginning to form, and a brand-new Sharknado is at hand. Under those circumstances, once again, Fin, his old friends and some new ones, will have to battle against threatening shark-infested cyclones, in a calamitous Sharknado extravaganza. Boy, are we in trouble or what?Written by
(at around 1 min) For the first time in the franchise, we hear a musical theme which was not written for the franchise. "In The Hall of The Mountain King" was composed by Edvard Grieg centuries before Sharknado (2013). See more »
(at around 26 mins) Aston proposes blowing up part of the Grand Canyon to block the flood from Hoover Dam. The Grand Canyon is over 50 miles upstream from Hoover Dam. See more »

The title is shown through a Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) style opening crawl. The rest of the opening credits don't appear until the 18-minute mark, where the franchise's regular title sequence is shown. See more »
Just like we'd come to expect from the series, SHARKNADO 4: THE 4TH AWAKENS is campy B-movie-esque fun. A ton of crappy CGI, tacky one-liners and over-the-top acting.
Watch it only after you've seen the other three installments, and only if you liked those. This one definitely caters for fans. No time is spent whatsoever introducing any of the characters—everything is taken for granted.
If you do like the series, you're up for all kinds of -nados this time, bouldernados, sandnados ... lots of deliberate play with its own themes, infused with self-aware irony. I enjoyed watching this, although as far as B-movies go, I don't like the fact that they're now making a "B-movie" for the sake of making B-movie... while also catering to a mainstream audience. Some of the genuineness of true B-movies is definitely lost.
