This review is from: Shark Attack 3: Megalodon (DVD)
OK, I have vague recollections of seeing the awful SHARK ATTACK 1 on cable a couple of years back and have never even seen SHARK ATTACK 2, but nothing could prepare me for the sheer unadulterated awfulness of SHARK ATTACK 3 - MEGALODON!!! This is primo bad movie material here, folks, harkening back to the grand ole' exploitation shark flicks of the 70's and 80's. Move over GREAT WHITE, move over TINTORERA, move over MAKO JAWS OF DEATH! There's a new kid on the block!
MEGOLODON is not the usual dull-as-dirt DTV crap that fills up Blockbuster's shelves every month. This one is unbelievably awful, over-the-top, and absolutely absurd from start to finish. A giant prehistoric shark is terrorizing a Mexican resort and chomping down on every living human it can get its jaws around. You know you're in for a good time when the smartest character in the whole film is a dog that refuses to go into the ocean and lets the shark eat its master instead! Hilarious dialog, awful acting (with bad dubbing), stock footage that stands out like a sore-thumb, graphic gory violence, and even some nudity to keep things a bit sleazy - it's all here and done with so much gusto that you can't help but have a good time even though you know all along how truly terrible it is. I'm telling you, you have not lived until you've witnessed the shots of a giant shark head spouting from the water and swallowing boats whole. And when's the last time you heard a lead character tell his new girlfriend something like "You know, I'm really wired...what do you say I take you home and eat your ******." OMG!!! Unbelievable madness!!! Joy joy joy!
If you wanna see one of the all-time worst and re-live that old feeling of watching some bad euro-import from the late 70's, this one delivers the dumbness in big doses. It may have been made in 2002, but it looks and feels like a terrible drive-in flick from two decades ago. Good movie fans, proceed with caution. Every one else, check this thing out! Manohman!
