Can't say I liked it. Another no-reason sequel, but even less interesting. Taking itself not serious enough, which had its charm for sure, but meh.

The first Tremors film to go Straight-to-Video, and that video features one of the *worst* covers I've ever seen. Seriously, do yourself a favour and google that shit, it's amazing. Back to Perfection really ups the CGI quotient. Not always a bad thing but it is when the quality is as poor as this. I understand it though, home media releases don't typically get the biggest budgets. Again, Tremors 3 is nowhere near as good as the original, but it's probably only a single step (or maybe two) below Tremors 2. And so far all three of them have proven entertaining.

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.

worst in the franchise

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

Better Than 2 Almost As Good As One Cause OF How Funny They Made It!

Not as great as 1 or 2, but still a pretty solid film.
If you enjoyed the first 2, this film is a must see.

Yea... this sequel is a far inferior. Visuals are ridiculous.

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+)

This is offensively terrible. The effects are so bad and inconsistent that it's almost unwatchable. During the few moments when it isn't taking itself too seriously, the jokes are even worse.
November 25, 2014
Much more special effects filled comedy than horror. The CGI is kinds cheesy, but used well. The acting is decent enough, helped along by some clever dialog. In all Tremors 3 is fun on its own terms. 55/100

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.
