Tremors 5: Bloodlines (2015)

The lovable gun enthusiast and Graboid hunter Burt Gummer is once again enlisted to tangle with the pesky beasts; this time on an all new playing field. The playful tone from the previous films is more than well represented with the accompanying comedic actor Jamie Kennedy playing Burt's overzealous cameraman. Each Tremors sequel has always attempted to breath new life(forms) into the story and this one is no different. The cryptid designs don't really fit into the series' evolution, but they are still quite effective. For the most part the CGI sfx are acceptable for a b-movie, but there are certainly a few groan-inducing shots. While only a fan of the first Tremors, for me the film's antics grew tiresome at the 40-minute mark. The subsequent action failed to keep things interesting.
