Unfortunately for Dinoshark, it makes the mistake of eating the bottom half of one of Trace's friends - that makes it personal for him and mutual friend Carol Brubaker (Iva Hasperger), a tall, blonde Princeton graduate who supposedly teaches but spends most of her time coaching girls' water polo, hanging out in a seedy bar, studying marine biology just for the fun of it, and holding off the advances of creepy old men. Together, Trace and Carol set out to find and kill the creature. With what, you ask?Read more ›
I love monsters with enormous appetites and/or a bottomless pit for a stomach. I immediately lost track of the number of folks it chewed up. How they all fit in there I'll never know!
Of course, there was a dopey cop, there always is, that, and a doomed sidekick, plus a damsel under dressed. It was pretty much what one could hope for in a movie of this type. Another keeper!
This is light viewing. A way to relax spending some time watching a monster movie. They didn't camp it up. They pretty much played it straight. It isn't funny and it could give kids nightmares. The special effects are obviously special effects. This is a low budget film but again that is part of the charm to me at least. There is a lot of gore.
So, we get some funny deaths...the surfer, the lifeguards and their boat, the parasailer, and so on. Of course, plenty of hot chicks are consumed along the way.
Eventually, our hero takes a jet ski and a grenade to do battle with the Dinoshark after it eats a tourist tourboat, and all but one of the people on it, while the hero's hot girl compatriot, who is a professor, water polo coach, etc...follows him, looking incapable of doing anything herself.
Basically, it is exactly what you expect....campy, funny, characters who cant help but make bad choices, with some requisite bad acting and a silly looking creature to boot. It is pretty much average as far as B movies go. You will probably enjoy it, but you also probably wont give it much thought for too long after watching. In fact, i can barely remember what this review was supposed to be about....
This is another take on the well-worn "Jaws" theme but stands out because it takes place in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and features a nigh super prehistoric shark.
Although the dinoshark itself and the things it does (like taking down a helicopter and jumping over barriers) are unbelieveable, the story and characters take it seriously, so the viewer is able to suspend belief and enjoy the flick for what it is.
I was impressed with the good group of characters and their believable relationships. The filmmakers obviously put some effort into the story.
Eric Balfour stars as the protagonist, Trace, and Iva Hasperger is his female counterpart, Carol. Balfour would make a great Sub-Mariner or Spock with his angular look and Iva is all-around gorgeous, top to bottom. In fact, the women in the film are a huge highlight. Outstanding job on that front.
Bottom line: "Dinoshark" is nothing to write home about but it delivers as a made-for-tv nature-runs-amok flick.
