Now, keep in mind, I've only seen six shark-based movies in all. There are the four Jaws films, Deep Blue Sea, and now Shark Attack 2, which is, yes, even worse than the much hated Jaws the Revenge. Actually, not to my surprise at all, this movie rips off every one of the aforementioned films (yep, from genetic tampering in Deep Blue Sea to even all the way down to the "character at the end who should have been eaten but surfaces injured and alive" ending from Jaws the Revenge), but it's not as if though this couldn't have been a fun movie. For crying out loud, I enjoyed Octopus.
But no, Shark Attack 2 is a bad movie in any way you put it. It begins with two sisters scuba-diving, and one of them is eaten by a big great white shark. Said shark is later tranquilized and placed in an exhibition in a park called Water World, of all names. Anyway, the shark escapes in a scene that still boggles me with its horrendous special effects and lack of coherent continuity. Thus, the surviving sister, a shark expert named Nick, and a Steve Irwin-wannabe set out to hunt this shark, only to discover a terrible secret about its origin.
Having never seen the original Shark Attack, I can't say for sure how this one continues the story, though I'm figuring the stuff about the cancer research involving sharks has something to do with it. But all that aside, this is a very basic hunt-and-kill movie, from both sides of the field, be it sharks trying to eat humans or humans trying to kill the sharks. How hard can it be to screw such a concept up? Apparently, very easily, if you don't have the proper budget or acting chops to back a production up.

With the exception of JAWS and possibly DEEP BLUE SEA, you could take all these shark attack movies and lump them together; just change the actors, sometimes the location, but you end up with the same thing: poor special effects, so-so acting and some occasional laughs and/or thrills. This entry like the other two SHARK ATTACK movies is generic fluff, with little novelty or variety to distinguish it. The cast of Thorsten Kaye (as the studly hero), Nikita Alger (the hot diver) and Daniel Alexander (the studly if obnoxious Steve Irwin clone) gamely tries to breathe life, but this is just another movie in which the shark should have eaten the whole bunch.

Much like it's predecessor and successor, Shark Attack and Shark Attack 3, this movie gives new meaning to the word terrible. It's hard to even describe how bad this movie is.
However, if you were interested in making your own Shark Attack 4 movie there are only a few things that you need to keep in mind. Your movie needs to start with some sort of unexplained attack related to some strange creature that is later discovered to be some scientifically altered shark. Then you need some sort of rogue scientist who has recently been fired from his job or is of ill repute for some reason or another and an attractive scientist woman who ultimately will fall in love with this rogue scientist. These scientists must realize the eminent danger posed by the mutant shark and immediately confront some wealthy bigwig. The wealthy bigwig then must ignore the scientists' pleas in an effort to make some money on some sort water related activity. Finally after shark related deaths start occurring at that water event, the wealthy bigwig tells the scientists to hatch a plan to kill the sharks. The plan needs to involve stringing a bunch of batteries together to lure the sharks to some sort of bomb. On the eve of the execution of this plan, the two scientists have to hook up in the water. The day of the plan needs to involve a close call with the shark eventually getting blown up.
So that is the format if you ever yearn to create a Shark Attack movie. However, if you find yourself with that urge, please make sure that you are one of the people eaten by the shark because these movies just need to stop being made.

Shark attack 2 is not as good,but the sharks look more real. I will name out some of the flaws: 1. the sharks growl. 2.some of the acting was bad. 3. The sharks tails don't move at all that i can see. Well,if you like shark movies then this is the movie for You!

It's sad when, even with high-tech special effects, Jaws, which was made in the 1970's, is still better than this.
And how many times have people said it? SHARKS DO NOT ROAR!!!
When sharks roar in movies, I don't find it frightening, I find it amusing.

Fans of terrible B style horror movies may officially commence with the rejoicing, because the cliche ridden crapfest with the incredibly inventive title "Shark Attack 2!" is in fact moderately entertaining! Make no mistake; this is a terrible movie on almost every level by nearly all standard conventions of what would define a good film. The important difference between this terrible horror movie and an equally inept attempt at filmmaking such as "Zombie 5" or "Witchcraft 10" is that this movie actually manages to be amusing, and it even occasionally manages to reach that all important goal on purpose. While it certainly won't be winning any awards or generating any buzz, this clone of a clone sequel can be quite entertaining, especially if served up with a liberal side of happy juice.

Each entry in the Shark Attack series is generally interchangeable with any other, as they all follow the same basic premise and have the same types of characters. For some reason some sort of genetically engineered mutant or even naturally gigantic sharks are unleashed on poor, unsuspecting aquatic enthusiasts such as beach goers and marine biologists. Some sort of evil businessman or politician will blame the mayhem and slaughter on the constantly chipper hero, who must stick it to the man by bringing the flesh hungry underwater terrors to justice, sushi style. This particular member of the ever growing Shark Attack family faithfully follows this same story structure, and even manages to obviously steal multiple storyline arcs from the original "Jaws" as well. The basic hook in this movie is that some diabolical doctor was genetically altering sharks to try to come up with a cure for cancer.
