THE ALMOST INVISIBLE SHARK,
This review is from: Megalodon (DVD)
MEGALODON is a pretty well made low budget film, with some impressive CGI visuals. The story is fairly simple: a state of the art oil rig (almost looks like a castle) is drilling into the ocean floor. This results in the opening of a huge cavern which releases icthylogical creatures from prehistoric times, including the titular creature. The problem is, we don't see the shark for at least 45 minutes, and then afterwards, we only see it for a little. If you're going to have a monster shark, you should show it more often, don't you think.
The characters are pretty stock, and the acting is passable. Al Sapienza as the white haired pilot is reminiscent of the old Steve Canyon in the comics, and he has a strong, but sensitive, presence. The rest of the cast is average.
MEGALODON is the latest in a recent surge in megalodonic films, and none of them will make us forget JAWS or the underappreciated DEEP BLUE SEA.
