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.

They then board a bus heading to Oxbridge Downtown Airport, but such an airport does not exist in London.

We do however have a show called Good Morning Britain, which you do feature, but I should remind you guys that the British Empire doesn't actually exist in 2017.

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.
