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

If your watching any sort of mega monster movie obvouisly you aren't doing it for scream effect. These type of movies are what they are. Read morePublished on Jan. 23 2011 by luvhorrormovies
I was even looking for it to be a bad movie. I assume anyone who buys it is looking for the same. And in that sense, it was quite perfect. Read morePublished on Sept. 8 2010 by Ginny
Yes it's bad, but bad in a good way. The acting, the script, the scenario, the special effects. All of it ludicrous, but also highly entertaining. Read morePublished on Aug. 2 2010 by Winnipeg Book Lover
