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!

Unlike sharks in the Jaws movies Sharktopus has an unfair advantage he can reach out his about 20 foot long arms up well past the shore line up onto the beach grabbing people dragging the into the water and eating them, eek. One of the things I first noticed is in between his shark gills are spikes like a sea urchin and pointed it out to my friend sure enough later on we found out that unknown to Eric Roberts daughter he had without telling her went behind her back and added some extra gene splicing ftom another species to the mix. The tips of sharktopuses octopus arms are actually hard shaped like spear spear heads and using them like spears he can puncture things and also skewer living things like orderves on a stick and eat them
I teased my friend damn he's a racist he is half shark I joked when sharktopus ate a regular shark muwhahaha, this movie is unique and puts a different spin on the man eating terrorizing the humans shark movies.it is really different and I quite enjoyed it. I think it was very well written, great special effects, it has a nice level of creepiness, I love ( Eric Roberts ) dude excellently plays both bad, and good guys. Sure it has some cheesiness here and there but cheesy can be hilarious, you'll see what I mean when it gets to the part where a using a metal detector girl on the beach finds an old gold coin watch the old dude standing there and see what happens I was like WT? then we cracked up
But if you must know, and if my demeaning talk hasn't driven you away by now, I'll give you a quick synopsis of this SyFy classic. It starts off like any old beach/shark movie. Bikinis, girls, alcohol; the usual. We then are given a fun shark attack. Yay. Jaws is seen, people scream, and Jaws closes in on his target. Until suddenly- (Cue super hero music) -A tentacle shoots from the water and pulls down the shark, saving the day. Hurrah. Then we hear the Sharktopi's origins. Your classic military-creates-a-monster-to-use-in-war-things. We get an authority figure, who wants to make sure the money the US spent on S11 (The Sharktopus, wonder what happened to the other ten..) so he wants to see it in action. So he gets the head of the project (Who gets his daughter) to make S11 follow a small boat, by use of shock collar. Well, of course the propellers of said boat slice the collar halfway, followed by S11 removing it all the way.
Then we have the chasing of the monster, hiring of the mercenary who has a past with the creators of S11, and it kills and eats people, showdown at the end. Good stuff. We even get an awesome cameo by the master of great B movies, Roger Corman!
I loved this movie. If you adore Syfy, get it, get in the right mindset, and give it a try. If you like this one, you'll enjoy stuff like Ghost Shark (Think Nightmare on Elm street meets Jaws), Sharknado (The pop icon) and RoboCroc (Robot virus thing meets Crocodile hunter.) Hope this review helps. Happy Hunting!
It is great at what it is - an unrealistic, B-grade creature feature from the SyFy channel's endless catalog of schlock. It was an enjoyable evening of shouted warnings and advice, wild guesses about who would die next, and laughter. My daughters and I loved it (my husband was, thankfully, gone for the evening).
If you're looking for a good horror movie - or even a decent scare - look elsewhere.
If you enjoy laughing at dumb dialogue - and even worse visual effects - give it a shot!
