The tagline for this much anticipated film is ‘shark happens’ and does it ever.

Fin Shepard (Ziering) and his ex-wife now girlfriend April Wexler (Reid) are flying to their childhood home, New York City. As they are flying their plane encounters a storm. A storm filled with airborne sharks.

With sharks causing havoc to the plane, its passengers, and the pilots, it falls to Fin to land the plane. As he does this though, April has her hand bitten off by a shark. Once he has landed the plane and made sure April pulls through her surgery, Fin must brave the storm to reunite his brother-in-law (McGrath) and nephew (Palminteri) with their family.

Of course, it is also up to Fin to stop the three sharknadoes that are on courses to collide before they merge into a super-mega-sharknado. A storm of ‘biblical proportions’.
