1.0 out of 5 stars Do Sharks Dream? July 6, 2003
I am in my early thirties, which, by almost anyone's definition still classifies me as relatively young. I am old enough, however, that I have watched more than my fair share of grade Z ubercheesy movies. During my late night television excursions in the 1980s, I vividly remember watching the sort of films that could cause serious brain damage to even the most stalwart soul, films loaded with monosyllabic actors, scripts written on clay tablets, and special effects that were neither special nor effective. I thought I saw it all during those halcyon days of youth, until I discovered the wonders of "Shark Attack 3: Megalodon." You have not lived until you witness the spectacular beauty, the overwhelming sense of metaphysical ecstasy, the sheer jaw dropping brilliance of "Shark Attack 3." In fact, don't even finish reading this review. You are wasting valuable time better spent tracking down a copy of this inspiring objet d'art. Believe me when I tell you that this film will not stay on store shelves for long. I felt from the beginning that I was in the presence of greatness with this movie, and every minute that went by only confirmed this initial impression.
The story of "Shark Attack 3: Megalodon" is deceptively simple, but even a doctor of philosophy probably could not discern the higher planes of thought contained in this movie. A resort in Mexico faces danger from the reemergence of the prehistoric Megalodon shark, who swims up from the Challenger Trench to attack an underground cable set up by the evil Apex Corporation. The only hope for humanity rests with the actions of Ben, an employee of the resort, and Cat, a paleontologist who arrives in Mexico to hunt down the shark.

2.0 out of 5 stars For All You Campy Movie Lovers June 17, 2003
Imagine "Jaws." Now take away 99/100 of the budget, all the actors, substitute the mechanized shark with footage, the script and dialogue are by a guy whose only other credit is a published letter to "Dear Abby" and voilà! You have "Shark Attack 3-Megalodon"
A giant shark that makes the Big White look like a minnow threatens a Mexican resort. The evil resort owner does not want to hurt business. Brave security policeman, nubile idealistic girl and old salt want to warn the tourists and get the shark. Does this sound familiar? A few more keywords: shark attacks boat, shark blows up, someone supposed to have been eaten by the shark shows up alive and well. All rejoice.
I couldn't decide whether to give this one star because it is so bad or five stars because it is so perfectly bad. I compromised with two. I won't fault the actors because with dialogue this awful, Sir John Gielgud couldn't have made it sound good. Director David Worth can't be all bad, he directed the highly successful "Naked Gun." Maybe the budget and a probable 5-day shooting schedule did him in. So who's to blame? Let's not blame anyone and instead, cherish it for its purity of bad. It's kinda fun to recite the actors' lines before they say them,

5.0 out of 5 stars Where to Begin??? January 21, 2005
***Spoilers! But the movie is so predictable it doesn't matter***

I can't even begin to think where I should start ripping this Horror(able) movie apart. But let me try.

The Story: Not much of one but let me try. Ben is an overly happy chap who seems to be way-too-chummy with everyone on his beach resort... Until the Meg shows up. This computer animated shark that growls reeks havoc in Mexico and destroys an evil businessman's plans of a fibor-obtic communications cable. The shark is drawn out of the water by electrodes coming from the cable. It then goes on a killing spree and has to be stopped by the above mentioned jovial fellow, an attractive paleontologist, and another cheerful individual who happens to have an onslaught of atomic weapons (as all ex-naval officers do.) They devise a plan to kill the Meg and save the world from a possible prehistoric Armageddon. I'm serious, this is no joke.

The Bad: So it begins- I can honestly tell you there is at least one thing to laugh at in EVERY scene. I'll give a brief listing of them.

-The server who gives the happy Ben coffee in the morning (which Ben seems ready to burst with laughter over this colossal feat) is a different server when the camera changes angles.

-Three and a half words: "Here comes El Guapo"

-The security guard at the overly hot Cat's museum CAN'T SPEAK. He is a stuttery mm-mmm-mess

-When Esai starts the boat, they flip back to the jubilant Ben and if you look at the water, the boat isn't moving.

-The ENTIRE swordfish scene. Listen to the franco in the background attempting to speak. Then the whole "thirty years" comment. What in the sam hell is that?

-The randomness of the two punk rockers going down a water slide.

4.0 out of 5 stars NON-STOP HILARITY! October 1, 2004
OK, I have vague recollections of seeing the awful SHARK ATTACK 1 on cable a couple of years back and have never even seen SHARK ATTACK 2, but nothing could prepare me for the sheer unadulterated awfulness of SHARK ATTACK 3 - MEGALODON!!! This is primo bad movie material here, folks, harkening back to the grand ole' exploitation shark flicks of the 70's and 80's. Move over GREAT WHITE, move over TINTORERA, move over MAKO JAWS OF DEATH! There's a new kid on the block!

MEGOLODON is not the usual dull-as-dirt DTV crap that fills up Blockbuster's shelves every month. This one is unbelievably awful, over-the-top, and absolutely absurd from start to finish. A giant prehistoric shark is terrorizing a Mexican resort and chomping down on every living human it can get its jaws around. You know you're in for a good time when the smartest character in the whole film is a dog that refuses to go into the ocean and lets the shark eat its master instead! Hilarious dialog, awful acting (with bad dubbing), stock footage that stands out like a sore-thumb, graphic gory violence, and even some nudity to keep things a bit sleazy - it's all here and done with so much gusto that you can't help but have a good time even though you know all along how truly terrible it is. I'm telling you, you have not lived until you've witnessed the shots of a giant shark head spouting from the water and swallowing boats whole. And when's the last time you heard a lead character tell his new girlfriend something like "You know, I'm really wired...what do you say I take you home and eat your ******." OMG!!! Unbelievable madness!!! Joy joy joy!
