5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much what you expect May 21, 2009
Simply put, if you're here reading reviews about this movie you probably know exactly what to expect out of it, and already know if this is something you will enjoy or not.

It's a wonderfully cheesy movie chock full of over the top moments that border on being just plain silly, but that's the way I like it. If you're a fan of B movies do yourself a favor and give this a watch.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Octopus Approaching: 300 Meters Off The Port Bow!" August 25, 2010
I saw part of "Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus" when it had its cable TV premier on the idiotically renamed Syfy channel a few months ago. I knew I had to obtain it for my library. How could I not, it has all the stars in the cheese universe perfectly aligned: ridiculous title, ludicrous plot, complete lack of knowledge about sharks, octopi, or the military weaponry needed to fight them, preachy environmentalist plotpoints, terrible acting, and cast members that Ed Wood could only dream of, most notably Debbie (oh sorry, Deborah) "Shake Your Love" Gibson, and master cheese maker Lorenzo Lamas. It's a perfect conflagration.

The film starts in the mountains (?) of Alaska, and after a very long credit sequence, progresses to oceanologist Emma (Debbie Gibson) driving a stolen submarine under a glacial icecap while a helicopter hovers overhead dropping a secret buoy into the water which makes a pod of whales get suicidal, and ram into a glacier freeing two long-frozen combatants, a huge shark and really huge octopus from millions of years of freezer burn. For some reason the helicopter crashes, and Gibson doesn't know about the buoy, but the helicopter pilot intones over the radio that it's a secret and that it could endanger national security. But Debbie hijacked the sub, right? So why is the secret government helicopter helping her look for whales? What? Huh? This is just the first five minutes of the movie. Unfortunately it gets way less lucid from there.

Shortly Gibson gets fired from her job, and goes to live with her old brilliant professor, Lamar (Sean Lawlor) who was booted out of the Navy for running a nuclear sub aground to avoid hitting a pod of dolphins. Oh yes, there's more true-to-life backstory for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars MegaGiant Cheesy fun July 6, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you don't know that this is a cheesy movie by the title or the cover, there is no hope for you. Where else can you see a giant shark eat the Golden Gate Bridge? Or a giant octopus swat down jets? That would be enough to make me buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's so much fun! September 17, 2009
Although this movie has a far bigger ambition than budget, it still manageed to delight and entertain me throughout all of its 89 minutes. It's by far the best movie THE ASYLUM has produced yet and while it certainly isn't up to the production standards of big budget hollywood stuff, it is often far more entertaining than the overblown hype Michael Bay and his ilk come up with. Honestly, the movie has a very striking, almost psychodelic look with loads of wild, garish lighting and lurid color schemes. The editing is fast and frantic and the visual effects are occasionally almost passable. The acting is over the top (and lots of fun) and the script is really out there. I truly enjoyed and appreciated this thing a lot. The DVD transfer is especially excellent and on an upconverting DVD player it often approaches bluray picture quality. The super aggressive Dolby 5.1 surround sound will also give your subwoofer a real workout (although dialog is sometimes a bit distorted). Plenty of surround effects as well for an emersive experience. The premise of this one is so goofy and it moves along with a giddy speed that kept me smiling from start to finish. I loved it.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's like being Lobotomized! June 8, 2010
This movie has about as much imagination and creativity as the title!
My brain took a REAL BEATING watching this one! I really could not believe my eyes.
This film contains the worst acting in the history of cinema! It is typical TRASH from Asylum. They had such a great opportunity to make a fun giant monster movie and they blew it! They should take all the original negatives from this film, burn them, then bury the ashes in an undisclosed location, put the director in a Turkish prison, then make all the actors pay restitution to an oceanographic institution of their choice. This disc would make a better use as a urinal cake!!
This TRULY is one of the worst films I have ever seen. You have been warned!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Plan 9 From Underwater March 18, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I don't see how they could have possibly made a worse film. I'm a huge fan of campy horror movies (I own all the Godzilla, Ghidrah, and Gamera films for example, as well as a nice collection of horror cheese from Lake Placid to House). I've always enjoyed such things. Yes, I even own many of Ed Wood's cinematic atrocities.

But, as others have said, this film doesn't even qualify in the "so bad it's good" category. Some years ago I wrote a column called "Zippers". In it, I would point out the mistakes made in films. Sometimes it was as small as a cigarette burning backwards and other times it was something huge like the self-repairing yellow Porche in "Commando".

This alleged film has so many errors that I was constantly distracted from the movie itself. For example:

1. The actual battle that the movie title comes from takes place after an hour of each creature being in separate oceans.

2. The battle is mostly made up of 2 or 3 clips, each about 2 seconds long, played repeatedly as jump cuts.

3. Several times we see the massive shark roughly 10 yards behind a sub. Yet when the sub fires the stern torpedoes at the beast, the creature is nowhere to be seen and we see the torpedoes racing through a completely empty sea.

4. A sub - complete with a super secret joystick driven control panel AND turbo power - is reported as 20 meters away from hitting an undersea rock outcropping. Roughly 20 seconds later, a crewman announces that they are now 15 meters away. Then, after still more time passes, just 10 meters away. I could row a danged destroyer quicker.

5. Ahh never mind. There were over 75 such errors I found just in a single viewing of this Blu Ray.

3.0 out of 5 stars "This mermaid is getting canned."
Gimmick casting aside, this is just another standard monster flick filled with bad acting, bad FX, and bad dialog.

The story has been oft used, to greater success. Read more

Really a pretty silly and low budget film. Acting is poor and the plot is...well...not very palatable. Not much more to say.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad for a SyFy Picture
This movie keeps the spirit of the comedically awful SyFy oringinals. If you like the horribly funny things they pump out then this one won't disappoint.
