Format: DVD
Roger Corman proves you're never too old to make a cheesy bad movie, unleashing Dinoshark on an unsuspecting world. After spending the last 150 million years or so frozen in a block of ice, the creature (basically a shark with the head and scales of a dinosaur) decides he is more than due for a vacation and sets off for the sun and fun of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Like any tourist, Dinoshark overindulges himself in the local cuisine, takes part in a number of outdoor activities, and just has a great old time. Even though his trademark killing move includes jumping out of the water, only one man ever manages to see him - local boat operator Trace McGraw (Eric Balfour). Authorities blame the first few deaths on a tiger shark - and then they apparently just stop caring, no matter how many people disappear or die. They are apparently more concerned with drug smuggling (yeah, right) than a rash of local deaths. There's certainly no Mexican equivalent to Roy Scheider's character in Jaws running around yelling "Get out of the water!" Instead, it's game on for all the excursion boats, parasailers, jet skiers, and swimmers - and nothing is going to stop the big regatta festival. In other words, it's feeding time at the Dinoshark corral.

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?

Another Roger Corman Presents TV movie dud.
What's next, Dinominnow or Guppyshark?

Dinoshark season is officially open July 12 2011

Roger Corman proves you're never too old to make a cheesy bad movie, unleashing Dinoshark on an unsuspecting world. After spending the last 150 million years or so frozen in a block of ice, the creature (basically a shark with the head and scales of a dinosaur) decides he is more than due for a vacation and sets off for the sun and fun of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Like any tourist, Dinoshark overindulges himself in the local cuisine, takes part in a number of outdoor activities, and just has a great old time. Even though his trademark killing move includes jumping out of the water, only one man ever manages to see him - local boat operator Trace McGraw (Eric Balfour).

In other words, it's feeding time at the Dinoshark corral.

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? Well, it seems that any Mexican can borrow all kinds of heavy equipment from the military - and the local bar owner is Mexican. Carol also has connections with a local scientist (played by none other than Roger Corman himself) who might be able to determine the creature's vulnerabilities.

The special effects of Dinoshark are both good and bad. On the bad side, it's obviously a computer generated creature, and some of the shots of it swimming along tend to be on the repetitive side. On the other hand, many of the killings are of the up close and personal variety, with Dinoshark clasping victims in its jaws and taking them down to their bloody deaths. We're also treated to several shots of gory remains, which I certainly appreciated. In the end, it doesn't really matter that the creature looks smaller than it should or that what should be the most spectacular scene in the film lacks any excitement whatsoever - the special effects are still a positive, as far as I'm concerned.

If you're a fan of the "awesomely awful made-for-TV movie genre" or happy traveler in the schlock-filled world of sci-fi B-movies, you're probably going to enjoy Dinoshark. It's a heck of a lot better than a lot of the low-budget movies Roger Corman has made over the years. It's true that there's a lot of bad acting on display among the supporting cast (including Corman), but I think Balfour and Hasperger actually do a pretty good job carrying the movie on their shoulders. This is just a good, low-budget monster movie made in the old B-movie tradition, and I quite enjoyed watching it.

Without a Trace April 28 2011
By Einsatz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
As BIG shark movies (of a prehistoric nature) go, this was pretty standard. I don't fault it for that. I went by the endorsement: Roger Corman Presents, and snapped it up. Roger has a good sense when it comes to cheese. He is, unfortunately, a terrible actor and should have taken a cue from Hitchcock: don't speak, just occasionally wander through.
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!

Dinoshark, monster movie, sea monster April 27 2011
By Dwight E. Howell - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is what I wanted to see; a B movie. This could not possibly happen which is half or more of the fun but some of the things it is criticized for such as a teacher coaching a sports team is absolutely realistic.

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.

All the elements of your classic sci-fi network cheese. July 1 2011
By Peter - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
You already know what you are getting into when you rent a movie like this. A bunch of random scenes where various people are consumed while people wander around thinking it is just an ordinary creature such as a tiger shark wreaking havoc. One guy witnesses the truth and almost nobody believes him. Sadly, the creature targets that guys friends in addition to various vacationers, and said witness goes on the hunt to destroy creature who is consuming these people. The creature, Dinoshark, is of course always at the right place at the right time.
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....

"You're gonna need a bigger chopper." May 30 2011
By Wuchak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The film's called "Dinoshark" and it came from Syfy. What's that tell ya? It's a micro-budget creature feature. The question is, does it deliver? Yes.

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.

GRADE: B
