Editorial Reviews

It is known as S-11, a diabolical hybrid of shark and octopus created by genetic scientist Nathan Sands (Oscar®-nominee Eric Roberts of THE EXPENDABLES and THE DARK KNIGHT) as the U.S. Navy's next super-weapon. But when its control implants are damaged during a training experiment, the beast escapes to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a taste of sun, sand, bikini babes, jet-skiers, spring breakers and beyond. Now a hotshot mercenary, an investigative reporter, and Sand's biomechanical engineer daughter must stop a creature like none ever witnessed before: It has superior intelligence. It attacks without warning. And it likes to snack on bungee jumpers. Kerem Bursin and Sara Malakul Lane co-star with a hilarious cameo by legendary producer Roger Corman in the unforgettable Syfy Original Movie about the 8-tentacled eating machine called SHARKTOPUS!

Format:DVD
Just looking at the movie poster, I knew this film was supposed to be bad, and I knew I had to see it. Thankfully a friend of mine had recorded it when it aired on SyFy, so I am writing this review based on the videotape I am currently watching. Yes, a videotape. You know those things that you use to stick inside a VCR to watch or record a movie before they made DVDs. I know a few of you might still might might know what these antiques are. Anyways, as a note to those who gave this film 1 star, didn't you know this was a parody?

This should have become apparent to anyone within the first 15 minutes of the film when Roger Cormen (yes he is making an appearance in the film) watches a young woman using a metal detector on the beach. The young woman finds a piece of gold, and is quickly attacked by the tentacles of the Sharktopus and eaten. After the young woman is eaten, Roger Corman, walks down to the waters edge and picks up the gold piece the woman has dropped during the attack and walks away with the gold. At no part in this scene does Corman appear to be frightened of what has just transpired in front of him, and even smiles at the camera. So in a sense this film is supposed to be a comedy. It just depends on how you take it.

So basically, if you liked the remake of Piranha, you will probably like this movie as well. It has plenty of funny outrageous gags, stupid lines, bikinis, sand, and almost everything that made Piranha great (except no nudity.)

Eric Roberts (brother of Julia Roberts) deserves an academy award for his role in this film. After all he was the only person in it that could actually act, and besides he has never won one.

Even the editor deserves some kind of award for quickly hiding a machine gun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharktopus - a Classic for the Ages September 26, 2010
I cannot allow a bad review of Sharktopus to go unpunished, er, well, uncommented upon.

To every true cinephile, the three greatest movies ever made are 1) The Ten Commandments, 2) Ben Hur and 3) Sharktopus.

OK, Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, Sharktopus and Mega Pirahna.

Wait, that's four. OK, Ben Hur, Sharktopus and Mega Piranha.

And Komodo vs Cobra. When the Komodo ate the blond chick . . . Man!

And Aztec Rex. When the Rex ate that brunette chick . . . Man!

Wait, that's four. No. How many is that?

OK, Sharktopus, Mega Piranha, Komodo vs Cobra and Aztec Rex.

And Malibu Shark Attack. Yeah! And Supergator. He ate everybody!

How many is that?

OK, the three greatest movies ever made are Sharktopus, Mega Piranha, Komodo vs Cobra, Aztec Rex, Malibu Shark Attack and Supergator.

Now let's not have any more bad reviews.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jump the Squark September 25, 2010
If you're not a fan of bad horror movies, Sharktopus is likely the stupidest thing you've ever seen. To wit, it's a half-shark, half-octopus genetically engineered killer who spends the entire movie eating hot chicks in bikinis. It doesn't get much dumber than this.

But if you ARE a fan of bad horror movies, Sharktopus is a sort of horror movie nirvana, combining every monster shark movie since Jaws and every giant squid movie since...well there really haven't been any giant squid movies that match the appeal of Jaws. If there was, Sharktopus would rip that off too.

Sharktopus is an apex moment in Syfy's history, when fans of the monster movies the channel is known for suddenly became rabid advocates, eagerly awaiting the next monster's debut. Sharktopus has caused quite a buzz amongst this community, who eagerly discusses every sneak preview of Sharktopus in action: Sharktopus eating a bungie-jumper, Sharktopus eating a yoga instructor, Sharktopus eating a jet skier. All in a day's work for a half-shark, half-opus carnivorous beast genetically engineered to eat drug smugglers.

Oh, right, the plot. Basically, a defense contractor known as Blue Water created a monster known as S-11 (not Sharktopus, of COURSE). When a boat's propeller accidentally slices off the thing's control collar, Sharktopus is free to snatch people from the beach from incredibly shallow water. Or, failing that, it just uses its tentacles to climb right up onto the surface and follow its prey there.

And its prey is mostly hot chicks. The amount of T&A in Sharktopus may astonish even horror movie fans; while any movie featuring beaches inevitably features women in bikinis as well, the camera follows them everywhere with a point of view I like to call the ButtCam (tm).

3.0 out of 5 stars What do you expect with a name like "Sharktopus" April 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Okay, this movie was exactly what I expected when I received it. I am glad that I didn't pay for it, but I also dont feel that I wasted 2 hours of my life watching it either. So for the review, here goes:

The plot is the usual Military science gone rogue and needs to be dealt with. They actually poke fun at this plot in the middle of the movie.

The good about this movie, from a guy's point of view, is that it takes place in sunny warm Mexico. Because the sun is bright, the picture is bright and sharp. Because its in Mexico, the colors are vibrant and the scenery is beautiful. Because it's warm, there are lots of beautiful women in very small bikinis all over the place. There are guys too, but I didn't pay much attention to them.

As expected though, there is some bad and some really bad. The bad is the CGI. You can tell that this was a low budget movie with limited resources. The CGI was about equal to the special effects done in the 80's and 90's. Not near the quality of a blockbuster of today, but acceptable for what it is. The really bad, is the acting. It seemed that no one either read over their lines before they got to work, or that they were pulled off the street with no formal training in acting. Even Eric Roberts, the biggest name in the movie, seemed to be reading off note cards in all of his scenes. It was just bad acting over the whole of the movie.

So, if you are into "B" movies and know that this was only made for entertainment value, then you might like this movie. If you are looking for the next "Titanic" movie, look elsewhere because this isn't it.

You know what to expect before you ever see this movie. It's a cheesy, cornball movie that is fun just for its silliness. Good, mindless entertainment.

It's a movie you shouldn't expect much from. It's a fun movie to watch but don't expect it to be Oscar worthy.
