Yeah... flying graboids with flame out of their butts. No... Sorry. Just no. If you are a fan of tremors, it isn't a terrible watch. Just not as interesting.

Weakest of the first four films, but still a fun creature feature. Terrible CGI though...

Slow and boring. The first hour just treads the same ground, only it's not interesting and there's little action. After the ass-blasters show up it gets more interesting. Oh, and the CGI is abysmal. Don't recommend this one.

Only 5 original cast members returned for 3rd sequel to series.Micheal Gross is the only cast member to be Burt Gummer in all movies and short lived TV series.Also introducing Jodi Chang niece of Walter Chang who named the beast Graboids because the name alone would be a great marketing tool.But unfortunately he was eaten by a graboid during the first infestation of the worms.Walter Chang was played by Victor Wong who also died the same year this film was released.Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward do not appear in this film nor 4 or even 5 which coming out in Oct.Perfection has turned into a tourist trap and Desert Jack takes tourist in a jeep to where his partner fakes graboid attacks until the graboids eat his partner.Also Melvin Plug who survived in original infestation who is now a real estate in hopes to buying the rest out and turning into Reno.Since a certain Graboid is now protected by the government.Again the films are just fun entertainment.

Whereas Tremors 2 was just about enjoyable enough to warrant a watch, the third outing feels tired. Now it's just Burt and some fairly forgettable new characters holding the audience's attention. Plotwise, it's basically a retread of Tremors 2 as well, this time showcasing the final stage in the graboids' life cycle; the ass-blaster, which is just basically a flying version of the shrieker. Ultimately the action plays out with few memorable set pieces. The humour is much weaker this time around and the CGI has somehow gotten worse in the intervening 5 years. Dig out the first two movies, leave this one buried.

The return trip to the original setting from the first film is a nice reunion excluding Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward unfortunately. But that was the point for the third's storyline: to see how well the experienced locals handles another attack with the absence of the duo. It resulted to have the same entertaining value with the cast and their characterization; but the comedy seen in the first two was little this time. Although thanks to how entertaining it is, it's a worthy sequel to watch. (B+)

The sub-title, Back to Perfection is misleading. It implies that Kevin Bacon and Reba McEntire are back, or that it will be as good as the first movie. No, it is not; in fact, it is much worse. This time the returning cast consists of one secondary character, Burt. His character was very funny when paired with Reba McEntire the first time, but in the second outing, he lost much of his humor but still made a small contribution. This is not the kind of character to carry forward and build an entire third movie around, but that is exactly what this movie does. Of course, there is another group of townspeople to make a rounded out hunting team. Tremors was always campy but in this movie, the bad acting across the board is distracting and prevents the formation of likable characters. It reduces the movie to the action or the experience of what is happening, which is not something a movie like this should emphasize. The second episode tried to introduce a different metamorphic evolution of the Graboids to fight something new. In this movie, the creatures undergo an additional set of metamorphic changes, now they fly. This idea to evolve the creatures in the second movie was a fair at best, but to repeat that same process twice to make a new monster is just stupid. It is hard to see how this movie got funding when investors read a script like this, even harder to believe that they came back for a fourth movie later.

Tremors 3 is funny, off-the-wall, and pretty enjoyable, making it a decent (but not equal) third Graboid flick. 6.0/10

How did they manage to make this one even worst than the last? The acting is more atrocious, the attempts at comedy are much more painful, and all the characters are even more annoying. Not once did I enjoy myself when watching this crap. It just drags on and on, seemingly neverending. Also, the people in this movie can't seem to tell the difference between vibration and sound. It's clearly stated in the first one that vibration is what attracts these things. For some reason, every time these things showed up in this movie, everyone just shouted to be physically quiet, as if that's supposed to help. The movie somehow failed to follow it's very basic rules, and it makes me sick. Do yourself a favor and avoid this monstrosity.

Good in the "I wan't to see cheesy monsters eat people in a third squeal to a movie with Kevin bacon" kinda way.

The Food Chain Just Grew Another Link, As The Tagline States But It's The Weakest Link In The Quadrilogy. Michael Gross Returns As Burt Gummer, So Expect More Guns, More Action & To Be Irritated By The Survivalist. This Film Features More Action A Weaker Script, & Comes Full Circle With The Pre-Cambrian Lifeforms' Life Cycle. First Their Underground, Then Above Ground & The Final Stage Of Evolution Which Causes Them To Fly & Lay Eggs, In Turn Starting A New Life Cycle. This Is An Action-Orientated Decent Flick, Which May Be The Weakest Film In The Series, But Stands By Itself An Entertaining Film.

I saw 1 and 2, so I would not be against watching this one...

Actually much better than the previous movie. Still not as good as the original, but Tremors 3 is still awesome. There's new content which keeps it fresh.
½ January 11, 2014
A very fun and cool looking addition to the tremors franchise. I really like this film and I think that dropping Earl and promoting Burt to lead was good for the series. 7.3/10

Of course there are plot holes. But it's still hilarious and we loved the assblasters, well worth seeing!

Back in Perfection NV, the town has pretty much rid itself of all graboids, but that doesn't stop a few entrepreneurs from cashing in on the craze. They host fake tours which are supposed to show graboids, but it all just an excellent ploy. Eventually, a graboid does show up and the tour is unable to cope as expected. Gummer to the rescue, but the FBI steps in to save the species from extinction. So they will only allow them to be tranquilized. The FBI story doesn't seem to go anywhere, but eventually the graboids evolve again, into this time a flying kind which are called assblasters. A pretty funny moment in where they try to decide on a name. Even without the main characters from either 1 or 2, Gummer is the only holdout but keeps the energy alive since he was always the fun one. Actually pretty decent despite being incredibly low budget and direct to video.

A better-than-you'd-think addition to the 'Tremors' franchise with effective humour and good special effects. Lots of fun throughout, adding more depth to the central monster whilst not straying too far from the conventions of the series.
September 20, 2007
This installment loses quite a bit of the horror and the comedy that made the first two great. And the pitch perfect practical effects are replaced with cheap CGI.

That said, however, Burt Gummer is a total bad-ass and it's fun to watch him kill some monsters.
½ March 24, 2013
The worst in the series but still an okay film. The ass-blasters didn't make the movie any better and there could have definitely had more Shreiker action. Also this is the Tremors movie that uses the most animation, and that certainly doesn't help the movie.
½ March 18, 2013
It falters in comparison to the first film (and almost feels like a lesser remake), but Tremors 3 upholds the not-to-be-taken-seriously tone of the this ludicrous franchise.
