Proving even bad things must come to an end, the "Sharknado" franchise breathes its last -- at least for now -- with its sixth installment, "The Last Sharknado: It's About Time."

The fourth collaboration between Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg is devoted to visceral, brutally violent action, which this 90-some-odd-minute movie delivers in droves, even if the title is at least 21 miles more than it's worth driving to see it.
