Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Legendary schlock producer Roger Corman returns to the genre that he pioneered (and makes a hilariously chintzy cameo appearance, to boot) in this sensitive character study of a misbegotten shark/octopus hybrid that escapes the control of its navy handlers and begins to snork down surfers off the coast of Mexico. For fans of this sort of thing, all of the base elements of a superior creature feature are present, including cold-blooded scientists, beefy soldiers of fortune, and acres upon acres of postage-stamp-size swimwear. Unfortunately, while star Eric Roberts delivers a gloriously straight-faced performance as the creator of said majestic killing machine, much of the supporting cast indulges in the sort of broad winking at the camera that marks too many of the modern exploitation movies. Still, a concept this goofy won't go down without a mighty fight, and the sight of the titular character casually picking off bungee jumpers and crawling up on land (sure, why not?) to harass unsuspecting musicians is pretty irresistible. If, in the final accounting, the movie is only half as enjoyable to watch as the title is to say, that's still an awful lot of fun. --Andrew Wright

Product Description

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!

Customer Reviews

It was just bad acting over the whole of the movie.
Jerry Helsing
Basically, a defense contractor known as Blue Water created a monster known as S-11 (not Sharktopus, of COURSE).
Michael J. Tresca
I enjoyed this goofy move with it's silly monster and it's good "Bad" acting.

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.

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.

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).

Who doesn't love genetically engineered animal hybrids? I love them, clearly the SyFy network does, and Roger Corman as well. B-movie genius Corman does take a production credit on the epic SyFy presentation "Sharktopus" and even contributes an inspired audio commentary for the DVD and Blu-Ray release. Unless you lack creative reasoning, I probably don't have to tell you that a Sharktopus is a horrific combination of shark and octopus (with some fun neck spikes thrown in for decoration). And the visual realization of this nightmarish entity is truly the selling point of this effective bit of bad movie mayhem. For my money, to make a classic bad movie legend--you need several important components: First, a wacky killing machine. Second, a maniacally deranged, but logically challenged, plot. And third, a cast giving you overwrought dialogue as if the fate of the world depended on it. Thus, using my completely arbitrary personal criteria, "Sharktopus" is a solid entry into the bad movie lexicon that misses being a highpoint in the genre.

A rather subdued Eric Roberts plays an ethically challenged scientist. With the aid of his daughter, Sara Malakul Lane, the pair have created the Sharktopus in conjunction with the U.S. military industrial complex (here represented by one actor). Roberts may have shielded his little princess from some of the more nefarious purposes behind Sharktopus, but when the creature goes rogue off the coast of Mexico--the truths start to become apparent. A former employee, Karem Bursin, is lured back to be a ripped and shirtless love interest--oh wait, I mean to track the beastie. And the youngsters set out to stop the carnage that is devastating the tourist population in various resort villages.
