Editorial Reviews

It was frozen in glacial ice over 150 million years ago. Global warming has just hatched it in the Arctic. And now, it has traveled to Puerto Vallarta for a massive Mexican buffet of sailors, swimmers, lifeguards, jet skiers, horny tourists, bikini babes and more. It thrives in warm water. Bullets will not pierce its prehistoric armor. And it can leap out of the ocean to devour helicopters and parasailers. Can a rogue fishing boat captain and a sexy science teacher stop this ravenous pliosaur before it takes a monster bite out of the local fiesta and all-girl water polo tournament? Eric Balfour (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, 24) and Iva Hasperger star – along with award-winning B-movie producer Roger Corman himself – in the top-rated Syfy sensation about the blood-crazed primeval mutation called Dinoshark!

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Roger Corman proves you're never too old to make a cheesy bad movie, unleashing Dinoshark on an unsuspecting world. After spending the last 150 million years or so frozen in a block of ice, the creature (basically a shark with the head and scales of a dinosaur) decides he is more than due for a vacation and sets off for the sun and fun of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Like any tourist, Dinoshark overindulges himself in the local cuisine, takes part in a number of outdoor activities, and just has a great old time. Even though his trademark killing move includes jumping out of the water, only one man ever manages to see him - local boat operator Trace McGraw (Eric Balfour). Authorities blame the first few deaths on a tiger shark - and then they apparently just stop caring, no matter how many people disappear or die. They are apparently more concerned with drug smuggling (yeah, right) than a rash of local deaths. There's certainly no Mexican equivalent to Roy Scheider's character in Jaws running around yelling "Get out of the water!" Instead, it's game on for all the excursion boats, parasailers, jet skiers, and swimmers - and nothing is going to stop the big regatta festival. In other words, it's feeding time at the Dinoshark corral.

Unfortunately for Dinoshark, it makes the mistake of eating the bottom half of one of Trace's friends - that makes it personal for him and mutual friend Carol Brubaker (Iva Hasperger), a tall, blonde Princeton graduate who supposedly teaches but spends most of her time coaching girls' water polo, hanging out in a seedy bar, studying marine biology just for the fun of it, and holding off the advances of creepy old men. Together, Trace and Carol set out to find and kill the creature. With what, you ask?

4.0 out of 5 stars Without a Trace April 28, 2011
By Einsatz
As BIG shark movies (of a prehistoric nature) go, this was pretty standard. I don't fault it for that. I went by the endorsement: Roger Corman Presents, and snapped it up. Roger has a good sense when it comes to cheese. He is, unfortunately, a terrible actor and should have taken a cue from Hitchcock: don't speak, just occasionally wander through.
I love monsters with enormous appetites and/or a bottomless pit for a stomach. I immediately lost track of the number of folks it chewed up. How they all fit in there I'll never know!
Of course, there was a dopey cop, there always is, that, and a doomed sidekick, plus a damsel under dressed. It was pretty much what one could hope for in a movie of this type. Another keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dinoshark, monster movie, sea monster April 27, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is what I wanted to see; a B movie. This could not possibly happen which is half or more of the fun but some of the things it is criticized for such as a teacher coaching a sports team is absolutely realistic.

This is light viewing. A way to relax spending some time watching a monster movie. They didn't camp it up. They pretty much played it straight. It isn't funny and it could give kids nightmares. The special effects are obviously special effects. This is a low budget film but again that is part of the charm to me at least. There is a lot of gore.

I live in a world where two things are certain--(1) the SyFy network will continue to pump out spectacularly bad movies and (2) strange creature hybrids are here to stay. For the record, I love me some bad movie mayhem and look forward to many of these diabolically awful monster movies. But there is a fine line between campy badness that makes everything good and just plain badness. "Dinoshark," in the pantheon of similar SyFy films, has relatively little to distinguish it from the pack and, therefore, stands as a rather bland example of just plain badness! Think about it--we've had Mega Piranha, Mega Shark, Giant Octopus, Sharktopus, Crocosaurus, Mega Python, Dinocroc, and Gatoroid to name just a few beasties (and sadly, each of these creatures is burned into my memory!). A prehistoric shark just isn't that compelling in relationship to some of the more lunatic creations. And instead of deliciously and delightfully perplexing actors like Tiffany, Eric Roberts, Barry Williams, Debbie Gibson, Lorenzo Lamas and the kid that played Urkel--here you get the questionable star wattage of Eric Balfour. I don't know about you, but the Balfour name holds very little appeal in our household.

Well, this thinly plotted epic is about a long extinct sea beast who is released from his icy tomb and is hungry. Actually, he leaves quite a few body parts lying around--so maybe he just likes to kill. Balfour is in Puerto Vallarta chartering a boat for a friend when this outbreak of carnage begins. One of the initial victims is an old friend and he takes her death personally. Joining forces with a local scientist, I mean teacher, I mean water polo coach (oh, this extraordinary woman does it all!), the two solve the mystery of what the creature is with 15 seconds of Internet searching.

You already know what you are getting into when you rent a movie like this. A bunch of random scenes where various people are consumed while people wander around thinking it is just an ordinary creature such as a tiger shark wreaking havoc. One guy witnesses the truth and almost nobody believes him. Sadly, the creature targets that guys friends in addition to various vacationers, and said witness goes on the hunt to destroy creature who is consuming these people. The creature, Dinoshark, is of course always at the right place at the right time.
So, we get some funny deaths...the surfer, the lifeguards and their boat, the parasailer, and so on. Of course, plenty of hot chicks are consumed along the way.
Eventually, our hero takes a jet ski and a grenade to do battle with the Dinoshark after it eats a tourist tourboat, and all but one of the people on it, while the hero's hot girl compatriot, who is a professor, water polo coach, etc...follows him, looking incapable of doing anything herself.

Basically, it is exactly what you expect....campy, funny, characters who cant help but make bad choices, with some requisite bad acting and a silly looking creature to boot. It is pretty much average as far as B movies go. You will probably enjoy it, but you also probably wont give it much thought for too long after watching. In fact, i can barely remember what this review was supposed to be about....
