The Sy Fy original Swamp Shark (2011), is another in a long string of creature features from the cable network. Like many of these films, Swamp Shark features a half-baked plot, stars a bit past their prime, passable acting, unimpressive special effects, and a not terribly realistic looking creature. Making a few allowances for Sy Fy's lower standards, Swamp Shark is something that you can turn your brain off and enjoy without too much effort.

Somewhere down south in gator country, Rachel Bouchard (Kristy Swanson) operates a waterside eatery called "The Gator Shed", which for entertainment purposes, features the feeding of live gators kept in a pen. Helping Rachel run the place are her bartender boyfriend Tyler (Richard Tanne), sister Krystal (Sophie Sinise), brother Jason (Jeff Chase), and waiter Martin (Jason Rogel).

The local law, Sheriff Watson (Robert Davi) is secretly involved in the trafficking of illegal animals. While transporting a huge shark, the beast manages to escape into the swamp waters. It later strikes at The Gator Shed, smashing into the gator's pen, and killing a drunk who falls into the water. After a severed arm is found, Watson threatens to close down the restaurant, so Rachel and her crew decide to hunt down the creature, to try and save their business. They get some unexpected help from fish and wildlife investigator Tommy Breysler (D.B. Sweeney), who is looking into the sheriff's activities.

The creature continues to strike, leaving behind bloody remains. Banned from joining the hunt, Krystal slips away to a boat where some college kids are having a party, only to find herself threatened by the shark, and in need of rescue. Rachel borrows the Sheriff's boat, and manages to find her sister.

3.0 out of 5 stars Scooby Doo in the Swamp November 17, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The secret to good camp is a 100% serious sales effort behind a piece of entertainment which both parties (producers and audience) know is not serious at all. No, you're not making "Hamlet." But sell it like you are; just with a baaaaarely visible wink and a nod.

"The Wizard of Oz," for example, is awesome camp. Judy Garland alternately skips, sings, and snivels with vigor. Margaret Hamilton strikes an 11 out of 10 on the Cacklemeter. Bert Lahr's tail has a mind of its own. And the storytellers, with gleeful heedlessness, just blaze right by logical signposts such as, "How in the world does snow wake you up from poppy sleep?" and "Would those Flying Monkeys' wingspans really support their body weight?" Oz (like all fairy tales) is not meant to be logical ... just good, rollicking entertainment, sold with gut-busting effort.

Okay, so "Swamp Shark" is obviously not in the same league (or even solar system) as the 1939 classic. The derivative premise and plot cliches (like the hijinx of pre-coital teens bringing on the appearance of the killer shark as surely as a plastic surgeon's shingle signals a cameo from Donatella Versace) automatically relegate this movie to the minors. But. What the movie does have is a kick-ass sales effort by the principals in the cast. If they weren't having fun making this fish-sandwich of a story, at least they sure looked like they were. So you can't help but enjoy the ride.

Everyone can and will recognize the "Jaws" references and outright rip-offs in this movie. (Duh!) But what made the movie entertaining for me, besides its being funnier than I expected, was this weird realization I got about a third of the way through that what I was actually watching was an extended Scooby Gang adventure. Really. Work with me here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Shark Movie since Deep Blue Sea May 19, 2013
Format:DVD
Swamp Shark, despite the ridiculous title, is actually a movie worth seeing. Don't the title or the awful DVD cover art fool you into thinking it's a bomb. The production values are great. The score is fully orchestrated. There is humor, action, and tense moments. Not to mention six-foot seven Jay Chase finally gets to play a good guy! The story is about a town trying to recover after Katrina. The local town relies on its annual Gatorfest for tourist dollars. Rachel Bouchard (Kristy Swanson) owns a restaurant that is popular with the locals. Rachel's brother and her niece Crystal work there. The close-knit and peaceful town is policed by a corrupt sheriff (Robert Davi) who is making some extra cash as part of an exotic-animal smuggling ring. Sheriff has the hots for Rachel, but she has her eye on a mysterious stranger in town. (Rachel and Crystal look like they are sisters in real life. )

Sheriff bungles a handover of a rare shark, that gets away in the bayou. He does nothing except cover his rear end, and dismisses Rachel's claims of seeing a shark eat her restaurant's tame gators. With the Gator fest about to start, it's up to Rachel and her family, and the mysterious stranger to save the town.

Good movie. Well-done, Sy Fy.

4.0 out of 5 stars SHARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! April 15, 2012
By Einsatz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm having a hard time justifying why I like this movie, but I do. It's a pale imitation of other better films; yes, certainly, I can't argue that. All the characters are `types' needed to move the story along and good for little else (except shark food). The story is basic, very similar to others. Not a lot of imagination went into it, that's obvious. But, I still like it. I've always been a fan of Robert Davi and Kristy Swanson (I even liked D.B. Sweeney in this case). Having a fondness for certain actors helps elevate what might otherwise prove tedious. Also, being a killer shark flick gives it an immediate pass (even when the shark is rarely seen except for its fin). It's dopey, it's dumb, it's a visual feast of junk food proportions; I just had to have it for my shark movie collection. I refuse to apologize for that.
