Watched this thing last night.

Okay, let's see...

Cool premise. I mean, really, a big shark versus a massive octopus? That just reeks cool.

The story was more or less solid. Some parts were predictable, especially the "how to get rid of them" part.

The acting . . . well, aside from Deborah Gibson, who I thought was the most believable in terms of how she presented her character (except when she screwed around with Vic Chao, which seemed really out of the blue), needed lots of work. Seemed forced in a lot of ways, but this is a B-movie we're talking about so I was willing to not nitpick the acting because I just wanted to see shark vs octopus action.

The special FX were okay, a 6 or so on a scale of 1-10. Some stuff looked super fake. Others, namely the underwater sequences, looked real. My only issue with the underwater stuff was that you lost all sense of scale because there was nothing to compare these guys to (as compared to when the shark took a huge bite out of the Golden Gate Bridge). However, you did get your sense of scale when the submarines tried to take the shark on.

The shark vs octopus fight was pretty good. How often do you see a giant octopus wrap its tentacles around a shark's entire body? I just wish, though, there was the budget to drag it out because the fight was kind of short-lived and was very simple in terms of the "fight moves" from each creature. Likewise, other shots of the creatures throughout the movie were just a glimpse here and there.

On a fun scale, this gets an 7 out of 10, but my official rating is a 5. I think there was better acting in Transmorphers, and, well, guess I am nitpicking a little.

The title should say, "Don't expect much." I expected a bad script, bad acting, bad science, and bad special effects. In that regard I wasn't disappointed. If you decide to turn it off after a giant shark jumps out of the water and takes a jet out of the sky, wait. We later find out they can travel 500 knots, but have trouble catching a nuclear sub doing less than say, 40 knots. No wait. These nuclear subs have something called "emergency turbos" so maybe they can go faster. Sailors on nuclear subs don't carry handguns. Really. Who would they shoot underwater? At one point they flash the locations of the recent attacks. Nearly all were in the Pacific ocean as expected. There were 3 in the Atlantic. As Sarah Palin might tweet, "WTF?" These creatures for some unexplained reason are impervious to conventional weapons so the military led by our secret government kidnaps three scientists to employ them for information on how to kill them. They get right on the task by mixing water tainted with various vegetable dies. We discover red water added to blue water makes purple water and that blonds love Japanese men who try to act like Sulu as much as Orientals love blonds. After a romp in a closet, they figure out they can lure the creatures into certain ports (San Francisco and Tokoyo) which have a natural shelf and then trap them. The idea being they can get in, but somehow they can't get out, unless they catch a ride with a plane flying overhead. They then manufacture a phermone of an extinct animal for which they would normally have no idea where to start. We know they are successful because when they mix two liquids together it turns florescent green and Debbie Gibson smiles.

At one point Japanese and American subs are in the same area.

I guess it was just too good to be true. Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, with the object of one of my teen crushes right there in the middle of the action. Man, I had been looking forward to this movie so much, especially after seeing the cheesy greatness of Mega Piranha. Sadly, I must report that Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus just doesn't deliver the goods. Rather than letting us sit back and revel in the prehistorically gigantic havoc wreaked by our two title characters, some nimrod went and used up most of the time with a poorly written, downright stupid storyline.

As the story is told to us, a Megaladon and a giant octopus chose to stay and fight when all the rest of their species were fleeing the effects of the Ice Age (as if the Ice Age just suddenly happened overnight rather than over the course of a few million years). There they stayed, frozen in ice, until some stupid government project accidentally unleashed them on the world. The next thing you know, both military and civilian vessels are being attacked all over the world. The US military throws its collective hands up in the air after failing to kill the giant shark with a few naval guns, while the Japanese are apparently content to put all of its government trust in some junior scientist who comes to America to join forces with a university professor and his former student. Normally, as we all know, the Japanese would find some little boy in short pants and put him in charge of a whole task force, so I don't know what they were thinking here. Anyway, our trio of scientific geniuses comes up with a plan to lure the creatures into San Francisco Bay and Tokyo Bay. You can guess how well that works out.
