I, A British Person, Watched The London Scenes Of "Sharknado 5" And There Are A Few Problems

This film, about tornadoes full of sharks, is partially set in London and is a tad inaccurate.

America – you made so many mistakes, and I have issues at how you depicted our fair city and country.

And yes, I know that this film is about sharks in tornadoes, but I think it is important to check this out properly.

Firstly, the film starts with Fin (Ian Ziering) being told that he needs to go into a cave next to Stonehenge as it is full of ancient shark artefacts. But America, there are no caves anywhere near Stonehenge.

There is however a busy road called the A303 near Stonehenge and we've been having an argument for about 30 years about whether we should put that road in a tunnel.

It then gets weirder as we keep seeing a shot of a sharknado approaching London Bridge, but when April (Tara Reid) abandons her car, it turns out that she was actually on Tower Bridge the whole time.

At that point, the film leaves London and heads elsewhere, eventually leading to a scene featuring Tony Hawk turning the Sydney Opera House into a missile defence system for some reason.

These later plot twists are fine so long as in Sharknado 6 you show viewers the correct type of traffic lights.

You can watch Sharknado 5 on Syfy's website in the United States and on Syfy channel in the UK.
