4.0 out of 5 stars Tremors 3: Back To Perfection DVD!
This is the second sequel in the Tremors franchise. But was it as good as the original and the first sequel?
Well I personally felt the Tremors 3 was the poorest of all the movies (don't get me wrong, I love it, but if I had to pick one of the three to be my least favourite, this would be it). The reason for this is the CGI creature effects that were used in the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Tremors 3: back to perfection
This is an okay film but not great. If you liked Tremors 2: aftershocks, then you'll find this okay and enjoyable.
Tremors 3 is a mix of the first and second. Worth watching and purchasing if you a fan of the franchise..

4.0 out of 5 stars Tremors 3: Back To Perfection DVD!, 11 Oct. 2003

This is the second sequel in the Tremors franchise. But was it as good as the original and the first sequel?
Well I personally felt the Tremors 3 was the poorest of all the movies (don't get me wrong, I love it, but if I had to pick one of the three to be my least favourite, this would be it). The reason for this is the CGI creature effects that were used in the movie. They don't have a very realistic feel to them and don't interact with the actors very well. There are some scenes where it is obvious that the actors are starring into space, and the creatures were dubbed on afterwards.
Now after that little moan, let's look at the good points to the movie. If you enjoyed the original movie and the first sequel, there's no reason why you won't like this, because it still remains true to the storylines. The film is also quite family friendly, with very little bad language and the violence is very moderated, not over done. So be happy to show this one to the kids, rather than the original which was a little more risky for young eyes and ears!
The idea of returning to Perfection to see the town after the first Graboid attack 11 years ago works really well. It's good to see how things have changed, as well as to see characters returning from the original movie.
The DVD comes with a nice Spotlight On Location featurette which gives a good look behind the scenes at how a few of the stunts were done etc. I always enjoy seeing a 'Making Of' after watching a film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Franchise Extension!, 20 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Tremors 3 - Back To Perfection [DVD] (DVD)
While the first in the series offered a dry satire on B-Movies, the third in Stampede's franchise continues the preposterious comedy of the second. Survivalist Burt Gummer is back in Perfection Valley, where a host of new Graboids have shown up ready to eat its way through the town inhabitants.
Joined by newcomer Graboid enthusiast Desert Jack and entrepeneur Jodi Chang, it's up to Burt to put the Graboids back in place. It wouldn't be Tremors, however, if there wasn't a suprise or two, and without giving too much away: there's a third evolution which has to be seen to be believed!!
It funny, well-paced and fans of the series will relish in the chance to rejoin some old characters and smirk with knowning glee as Burt whittles off his infamous quips!
Look out for the fourth film soon, and a Sci-Fi channel TV series from January 2003. I for one can't wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lo and behold- a third outing!, 23 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Tremors 3 - Back To Perfection [DVD] (DVD)
This is magical. a film i saw in patches as a kid and i loved every minute of as a teenager has a third run-in. brilliant!
Although the new concept here is brilliant- again the idea of underground monsters is kind of dead-end- this is undoubtly the weakest link in the trilogy. thankfully most of the original cast are here- bacon and ward have moved on, which leaves the REAL star- Burt Gumer- to take center stage with his vast array of weapons to blow seven bags of **** out of the buggers!
a must see for fans, definetly worth a purchase, but not as good as the first two

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Sequel To Tremors, 22 July 2011

If you haven't seen Tremors, then you shouldn't watch this first. But, if you've seen Tremors and enjoyed it, then this is a good sequel. It continues the mix of B-movie style, witty one-liners, over the top characters, and scary monsters.

Like Tremors 2, Tremors 3 unveils more of the life cycle of the worms, adding to the problems faced by mere humans.

There's the usual mix of slightly incompetent characters, gun nuts with massive collections of firepower, and rough diamonds who save the day.

This is classic B-movie stuff and worth an evening's viewing with pizza and pretzels.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad - for a second sequel, 2 May 2012

This review is from: Tremors 3 - Back To Perfection [DVD] (DVD)
The original Tremors was a classic (not in the sense of The Godfather or Empire Strikes Back). If you like cheeky monster-munching B-movies, you couldn't go far wrong with Tremors. Plus it was successful, therefore sequels were inevitable.

Amazingly, Tremors 2 was reasonably well-received, so many doubted how a third outing would turn out. The two main stars are now gone and the top billing falls to a secondary character in the first two films - gun-totting Burt Gummer. He now returns to his home town to find that the monster worms are now back and spawning (another) new strain of their lifecycle.

Now, Tremors 3 will never be perfect and definitely not a patch on the original, but, for a sequel, it is fun. The worms are now computer-generated (which is a downpoint), but, if you enjoyed the first two and are happy to see the story go on then you should already like the genre and probably won't be two disappointed. On the other hand, if you've never watched a Tremors film before - start with the first one, then the second. If you're still happy, then do the third.

5.0 out of 5 stars "And THAT's why we're at the top of the food chain!", 4 April 2011
This review is from: Tremors 3 - Back To Perfection [DVD] (DVD)
Tremors, you saw Graboids, huge underground reptilians.
Tremors 2: Aftershocks brought you Shriekers, much smaller creatures, but no less dangerous.
Now Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) is facing a new threat in Tremors 3: Back to Perfection.

11 years have passed since the Graboid threat in Perfection Valley, Nervada. Even so, Burt remains to keep his guard up. Once again, people think he's paranoid. 11 years without a sighting, surely they're extinct to Perfection? But the Graboids return, and this time, Burt is ready for them. Teaming up with Desert Jack Sawyer (Shawn Christian), Burt wages war on his opponents, but is unable to wipe out the creatures before they mutate again. The new beasts are able to fly, and are humorously named Ass Blasters.

The humor remains, score is good, but the computer effects are a bit of a let down. The visual effects aside, it's still a good viewing, and continuation to the story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ass Blasters R Us!, 23 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Tremors 3 - Back To Perfection [DVD] (DVD)
The third movie in the Tremors series of films is adequate entertainment for the fans. Michael Gross returns as Burt, who in turn returns to Perfection to find it a tourist haven of Graboid fans. Into the mix is a nefarious real estate deal that threatens the very existence of the townsfolk. But of course, the Graboids and their mutated offspring don't care about such things.

If not expecting too much then this serves up some good straight to video fun. The formula remains the same, with Burt the paranoid saviour of perfection getting some good lines, while the return of characters from the first film is a splendid bonus for the fans. There's some snarky asides to the perils/cheats of tourist traps, and the real estate rape of the land angle is driven home without over kill. Safe if undemanding creature feature fare. 6/10

3.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Mindy grew up! And that guy from US daytime soap opera Days of our Lives appears. Ass-blasters!, 12 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Tremors 3 - Back To Perfection [DVD] (DVD)
A Kevin Bacon/Fred Ward less second sequel which brings back four of the original cast members from the first film and delivers a frequently good film. Michael Gross, the franchise mainstay, hams up the screen to great effect. And speaking of effect the sfx here is fairly decent for a direct to DVD film. Add to that an appealing threeway hero group and you hot yourself a fine comedy actioner. Whilst falling SHY of the original this sequel is well worth a watch just to see Ariana Richards from jurassic park. Also watch out for subtle, and not so, references to Tremors.

4.0 out of 5 stars great sequal, 8 Oct. 2002
By A Customer
What a film, for those of you who havent seen the first 2 there are big underground worms (graboids) that try to eat everyone in a small town in Nevada. Then they move to mexico where the morph into heat seaking things (shriekers) that look like a mixture of chickens and graboids.Now to the third installment, back in Perfection with many of the old cast the graboids are back, a hunt begings but the government send some people to stop them and try to capture a live graboid, this obviously fails and they morph into shriekers, but befor they can kill them they morph again into flying thingys (I wont ruin the name for you) and they have to fight the new enemy.
Much like the first two films this is a cheese-laden '50s style monster film, no deep meanings or emotions, just classic one-liners and people's legs flailing from graboid's mouths, buy it (and the first 2 if you havent) now.
