When a group of wealthy trophy hunters genetically modify Graboid eggs to create the ultimate hunting experience, it is not long before their prey escape the confines of their small island and begin terrorising the inhabitants of a nearby island research facility. The head of the research facility and her second-in-command Jimmy (Jon Heder) locate the one man who is an expert in killing Graboids: the one and only and now reluctant, Burt Gummer (Michael Gross). Once on board, Burt leads the group in an all-out war against the larger, faster and terrifyingly intelligent Graboids and the swiftly multiplying Shriekers!

In those we see the creatures clearly and the action is right there in front of the viewer.
In this film there is too much hidden in the jungle. there are too many small side issues and also some larger ones. so we not only have the conflict with the Graboids and Shriekers but with the HUnters and that rivalry.
I also have a bit of a problem with the islands. They seem to be great pinnacles of rock sticking out of the sea. Graboids can't move through rock.
So, while it is a Tremors film it lacks the simple clarity of the orginals . In short it is a bit of a mess.
They never threaten to reinvent the wheel or move out of the monster movie inspiration shadow, nor should they.
This latest entry, now steals from Jurassic Park with the Graboids now being genetically enhanced for big game hunter holidays, things go wrong, and Graboid hunter extraordinaire Burt Gummer is needed to battle the beasts.
As ever Michael Gross is extremely game, even if at this point Burt is a long way from the Burt Gummer of Tremors '89, here though he's aided by a decent cast of character actors Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) replaces Jamie Kennedy and adds a sense of fun in his high spirited comic side kick.
Richard Brake (who horror fans will know from Rob Zombie's movies, though his biggest movie maybe 2005's Doom) is for once a villain (ok nothing new there) but given a bit of nuance to his character and he plays it perfectly.
Also joining the cast is Cassie Clare (From the director Don Michael Paul's earlier effort Death Race Beyond Anarchy and given more to do here) as a badass bow using cohort of Brake's character, the effects are as with the last two instalments, mainly CG but decent enough.
The whole thing plays out as you'd imagine, and as ever is just about being fun, though it pays off things set up in Bloodlines and manages to be surprisingly poignant as well.
If your new to Tremors, don't start here, if you're a seasoned Graboid addict, dive in.
This is not the Tremors film to start with but it does seem this will be the end.
for some weird reason its filmed in a square(ish) aspect ratio like 4:3 or 5:4 i wasnt paying THAT much attention since i was watching the film.
It gives off a more old school Jurassic Park vibe with the Toilet kill and the "clever girl"-esque kill, however the premise is that a bio R&D firm have genetically modified them for big game hunters to kill so this seems more like Jurassic World.
Burt is old, now, and showing his age so its probably for the best that his reign of terror against the pre-cambrian life forms is at its end.
That said, there's still plenty of life in the old goat yet. He can still give it his all with explosives and guns. And he still fails to get the girl.
Great fun if you like the other tremors films - as I do.
