Five years after the events in the last film, new technology uses radio waves to defuse tornados, but Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) learns during a visit to Las Vegas that it’s no guarantee against sharknados. This third sequel looks and feels like something that would come years after a phenomenon ended. Jumps from city to city and introduces new twisters (including a cownado), but it’s all just noise. Uninspired and cheap cameos, although it is fun to see Gary Busey as a kooky scientist.
