Review:

Tremors 5: Bloodlines started with negative points because of Jamie Kennedy. I do not know why but I can’t stand that man. His face pisses me off. So I found this movie difficult to watch.

Five movies in, and I’m starting to understand why I like this franchise despite it being in a genre I usually dislike. It’s the romance. Each movie has a little bit of romance that is enough to lighten things for me. There’s also the depiction of women, with almost all of them being badasses in their own right.

I was looking forward to watching Bloodlines despite Kennedy because fans seemed to like this one better than the last two. Sadly, I’ve got to disagree. I wasn’t a fan of the inclusion of bad guys, other than the graboids. I thought Michael Gross having a love child was stupid. The whole way things were handled with capturing the creatures just felt off to me. I did like that Kennedy wasn’t the love interest, but I wasn’t invested in the romance at all because those characters seemed to be just off on their own. They had to do with the main plot, but they weren’t connected to Gross until the end. I wasn’t a fan.

2/5
