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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dinoshark season is officially open July 12, 2011
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?

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.

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!

The movie arrived in great condition. It played great, but I did not like the movie at all. So I put away and chalked it up as a bad buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good SciFi Shark Movie April 4, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just can't help myself. I just love shark movies. The actors are good. It's just another good "shark eats everyone" movie. It's a global warming movie that melts the ice where baby Dinosharks are awaken. No one believes the star as usual until all the mysterious deaths wake up the authorities. Good movie for SciFi lovers.

OK movie. No surprises in the plot, and it was a somewhat boring in spots. A bit more action would have helped.

Wasn't a bad movie. Sort of reminded me of the movie 'Lake Placid' in it's way. I really enjoyed the movie very much.

Another reboot of Jaws this time with a dinosaur playing the role of the villainous fish. Would not recommend this movie to anyone.
