Movie Info

When a wealth of silver is discovered in the vast Nevada desert, the small but almost immediately prosperous boomtown of Rejection is quickly established in order to support the Bottom Dollar Mine. Despite the riches beneath their feet that promise to put Rejection on the map and deliver wealth and prosperity to the small community, the fate of the town takes an ominous turn when 17 miners are mysteriously killed. As the fearful residents abandon the mines and flee the town, mine owner Hiram Gummer (series regular Michael Gross) takes matters into his own hands by leading the few remaining residents in a hunt to solve the mystery of the miners' deaths -- only to discover that the unearthly underground killer is a more powerful force than he may have ever imagined. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Tremors 4 - The Legend Begins

    The Tremors franchise continues to surprise by how not-terrible it is. Of course the original was the only truly good one, but so far the three sequels have been engaging. What I do have trouble wrapping my head around is this fascination so many films have with bizarre quasi-prequels. You know, ones that don't actually expand the mythos itself, but have actors come back to play their own ancestors doing the same thing all over again, in the past? It feels less like it should be a feature film, and more like an Elseworld comic, or a single episode about a parallel universe in a cheesy TV show. Tremors is far from the first to do it, and its a concept that has never really worked for me.

    I am a long time fan of the Tremors movies but I think they milked it till so hard like the saw and hell raiser movies that once they got to Tremors 4, they were low on a budget and low on ideas and made me loose interest in following any further. All though the movie is still worth a watch, I was not highly satisfied with it.

    I was pretty recluctant to watch this after disliking the 3rd Tremors movie. Thankfully, this film was an improvement. A lot of peole criticize this movie mainly for being a western, but if you think of it, the first three Tremors movies were pretty much modern-day westerns. (Modern-day back when they first came out.) I had no problem with the western aspect mainly because I like westerns. Obviously, Tremors 4 is a prequel that explains when the town of Perfection (It's named Rejection in this movie) first discovers the Graboids. The only original cast member from any previous Tremors movies in this film is Michael Gross (He's been in every Tremors movie.) yet, he doesn't play Burt Gummer. He plays his ancestor, Hiram Gummer. I really liked how Hiram and Burt are related, yet they're two completely people. Burt was a gun loving tough guy who knew what to do in any situation and he was generally a nice guy. Hiram, however is just a rich, snobby dick to everyone and he can't even hold a gun the right way. Michael Gross did a really good job playing someone he probably isn't accustomed to. In Tremors 3 there was a heavy usage of CGI and I hated it. In Tremors 4, most of the technical stuff is puppetry, but there is a little bit of CGI involved. The humor that the first two Tremors movies had and the third one was missing is in this movie and I really enjoyed that as well. The script was more aware of the audience as well. The director seemed to realize that Tremors has a pretty big fanbase and the third one easily pissed a lot of people off so he had to return to roots of the first two. All in all, this film had fun characters, really good action scenes, nice script and a solid return to original roots in the series.

    This very cinematically improved last sequel I stumbled upon at our local Walgreens DVD value bin! As 2 long-time, devoted fans, my son & I (both fans of the genre--comedic horror/suspense) gave ourselves a treat and saw this belly laugh-filled tale that goes backward in time to the 1899 Wild West when someone else HAD previously encountered the original, obscure & previously undiscovered desert "underground monsters." :) Michael Gross surprises and sexy 70's co-star Billy Drago adds his own unique flair and eye candy to this hearty cast when he portrays a gunslinger who "believes" when circumstances make it impossible to doubt!
