We did it Patrick! We saved the city!

GREAT to know that neither the size-ambiguous megalodon nor the giant crocodile with an "exoskeleton" (???) adhere to the laws of physics, biology, or geography! Man what a world tour of a movie!

There goes Hawaii! Oops there goes Panama!!! MILLIONS ARE DEAD

"THEY'RE TOAST"

GOOD WORK NAVY YOU TOOK OUT AN ENTIRE US STATE AND ALSO PROBABLY THOUSANDS OF LIVES ON FOREIGN SOIL BUT YOU SURE DID DANG KILL THAT SHARK HUH

How, how, HOW do they justify that croc laying that many eggs. Some kind of "evolutionary adaptation" that makes them infinitely spawn until you blow them up? It got the East Coast, the West Coast, Africa, and the Caribbean, and I think the movie took place in either a day or two days maybe???? Look, most of these movies make no sense whatsoever but this is PUSHING it.

Acting was pretty decent all told, though. Some real awful line deliveries in there. 3.5/5 definitely better than the first one.

Pathetically stupid, but entertaining

Sets a new standard for dumbness. Near the beginning, Miss Legatt leads our intrepid croc hunter into the jungle, wearing a dress, high heels and carrying a briefcase. It goes about as well for her as her wardrobe choice. Don’t even pretend that anything makes any sense, but it is so stupid that it is funny. In the shots of the aircraft carrier, all the men are lined up on the flight deck, so obviously a still shot during fleet week, or similar celebration. When the giant croc attacks the city, it reminded me of the Saturday afternoon television Japanese monster movies of the 1950's where the toy tanks and guns rumbled towards the monsters, although this time it was in color, but not much better special effects. And the submarines had very spacious control rooms. Very roomy. Of course, the subs were not that big, getting swallowed by the croc or shark. The submarine USS Argonaut was to collect some eggs, yet they worried about going too deep at 125 meters. US submarines can easily go to 1000 meters. I was waiting for the term nuclear weapons to be used, and I didn’t have to wait that long. The special effects are not particularly good, and for some, it was obvious that the same scene was shown over and over in a loop. This almost qualifies as a B Movie that is so bad it is good.

Second Mega Shark battle is a dud
Verified purchase
This review is for the Blu-Ray edition of Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus released by the Asylum in 2010.

This movie is a sequel to Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus which was released in the previous year.

*****LOTS OF SPOILERS BELOW THIS POINT*****

PLOT/SUMMARY: Nigel Putnam is in the Congo and he manages to capture a giant crocodile that is causing problems there. He has it put on a cargo ship. He is planning on making a lot of money off of it.

The Mega Shark from the first movie (I think it's the same but it could be different) attacks a Navy warship and sinks it. Terry McCormick (Jaleel White) survives the attack. McCormick is a Lieutenant in the Navy and has created a sonic device. This device may have caused the Megaladon to attack the ship. McCormick wants to help Agent Hutchinson track down the shark. Mega Shark next attacks the ship carrying the giant crocodile, Crocosaurus (I guess). The ship is also carrying crocodile eggs. Putnam escapes the ship with his partner.

McCormick is sent to an aircraft carrier where he meets Admiral Calvin. The ship's objective is to kill the Megaladon (Mega Shark).

Meanwhile, Agent Hutchinson goes to meet Putnam and learn what she can from him. Putnam tells her about the crocodile which she was unaware of. She forces Putnam back to the aircraft carrier. It is then discovered that there are more eggs on another island. A missile strike is ordered to destroy the eggs. Megaladon swallows some of the eggs and more eggs are destroyed in a cave by jet fighters. Crocosaurus heads to Florida and an arc flash is used in conjunction with a nuclear power plant in order to stop him. Megaladon, for whatever reason, has a thing for the eggs. There is an egg being carried in a submarine and a few more are in helicopters. It has been decided to study these eggs.

Putnam comes up with a plan to trap Mega Shark and Crocosaurus in the Panama Canal. They retrieve some eggs and put them in the canal. A battle begins with the creatures and the navy all fighting each other. The fight creates a tidal wave that wipes out the canal zone.

Crocosaurus has managed to impregnate itself and has laid eggs all over the U.S. coastline. These eggs hatch and start attacking in California. Mega Shark and Crocosaurus are now heading to Hawaii. Mega Shark swallows a nuclear torpedo and it doesn't blow up. Agent Hutchinson, Putnam and McCormick crash in a helicopter. McCormick and Putnam bring McCormick's sonic emitter to a volcano to lure the two monsters there. The hatchlings come to help Crocosaurus. Agent Huthcinson fixes the helicopter and picks up Putnam and McCormick. The volcano erupts and the nuclear missile in Mega Shark detonates and all the creatures are killed and sink to the bottom of the ocean.

PRODUCTION/COMMENTS:
-At least it had somewhat of a story no matter how bad it may have been. That can't be said for all of The Asylum's releases.
-This movie stars Jaleel White who played Steve Urkel in the Family Matters sitcom for almost ten years.
-The ship that Lt. White is stationed on is called the USS Gibson, an obvious reference to Debbie Gibson. You also see a photo of Gibson on the wall in the bar in Africa.
-At the end of the credits, there's a scene where Putnam and Jean agree to head off to go capture Godzilla. For real... I'm not making that up... no joke. They don't name him but they call him a giant lizard in Japan.
-I guess I shouldn't even bother to complain about the scale of the creatures and how Crocosaurus changes size. I mean this is an Asylum movie isn't it?

WAS THE CGI ANY GOOD?: Again... it's an Asylum movie, so how much can I really complain? It's not that good. Mega Shark doesn't look all that great and Crocosaurus isn't a whole lot better but it is what it is. Crocosaurus looks unfinished as you might expect in a movie with this budget.

HOW WAS THE BATTLE?: Not good... let's leave it at that. They bite each other and that's about it. I'm not really sure what else they can do. The each have a big mouth with big teeth. At least Crocosaurus can go on land and water so he's slightly more interesting. It's a wonder to me how The Asylum has squeezed so many movies out of Mega Shark. It has to be one of the least interesting monsters out there.

THE WINNER IS... : It's a draw. Neither has the upper hand and are both killed at the same time by outside forces. They tangle twice but both times the battle ends in a draw. So we have no choice but to call it a draw.

ARE THERE MORE SEQUELS?: Yes there are. They are two as of this date. They are:

Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark
Mega Shark vs. Kolossus

RECOMMENDATIONS: I can't give this movie a good rating. It is another terrible movie by The Asylum. It's not even 'so bad it's good' bad. It's just bad. I'm being generous and giving it 2 1/2 stars for the plot. The fact that it had a plot is worth something. If there had been any decent extra's I would have bumped this up to 3 stars overall but I just can't do it.
So it's 2 stars overall.

Recommended only for fans of Mega Shark and really bad Asylum movies.

Great Choice! Go For It!

Looking for stupid stuff? Look no further, this will fulfill every expectation you might ever, or should ever have.

Plot? OK to OK ++, it rates a 3 on my finger scale.
Characters and acting..... hahhahahahahahahahahah. Get over it.
CGI? Crummy for the most part, just barely good enough to fool a 3 year-old.
Special Effects? Cracker Jack candy popcorn has more flair

However:

I gotta say that I recommend this move since it does check all the right check boxes. It's a definitive B Movie extraordinaire and has all the schlock any self aware human might look for in this genre.

The Big Shark (which is sometimes smaller) and the Big Croc don't like each other at all, so they get into a street fighting mode. Poorly done special effects round out the ensemble of gloriously over acted, under-performing "Beasts on Parade"

In some fashion or other, this particular megaladon seems to have cross fertilized with a flying fish and walking catfish, and that my B Movie friends is a really nice touch.

The croc does a nice two step dance moves to some of the musical score, so she wasn't left out of the running for an Academy Award though.

All of the typical "Beast Mode" action is here, including a Big Shark with a BIG roar. Does anyone writing the screenplay never read up on the idiosyncratic behaviors of the critters they are using? Shark don't have any vocal chords, at all!

The icing on the cake has to be though, that the dirt smudge on 'Nigel's' face at the beginning of the movie is still there at the end of the movie. The Never Ending Smudge lasts through numerous days and numerous salt and fresh water dunkings. Must be an indelible smudge.

Ok, but they didn't pay Terry
Verified purchase
Terry joined even though he wasn't getting compensated. I think there are labor laws against this and I disagree with perpetuating the idea that people should be working for free. Are you telling me after all the hard work Terry put in, all he is getting is the satisfaction of revenge. Terry has bills, revenge isn't gonna put food on his table or pay the rent! At least give him paid leave!
Also, since the commander was able to buy the "most expensive cigar in the world," is he the only one getting paid on this ship? How can he afford such luxury while poor Terry basically is preyed on by the military to give his expertise away for free.
Other than that, great movie 10/10 would maybe watch again.

So Bad It's Almost Good?

Don't get me wrong. This, is a lousy film.

Riddled with bad acting, bad writing, and low-budget CGI effects. Real low.

The main star was an unknown who resembled Pierce Brosnan, while doing a non-stop imitation of Crocodile Dundee.

Still, in an odd way, I was entertained.

So if you're curious, and don't have much else to do, maybe check it out.

2.5 STARS

Probably an interesting story. Terrible movie
Verified purchase
There was so much to complain about after watching the movie.
The shark and croc's sizes were inconsistent. At times, they seemed to be in godzilla's weight class. At times, the croc seemed like one of the smaller kaiju. Sometimes the shark's dorsal fin was higher than the destroyer's highest mast or whatever it's called in a destroyer, at times the shark seemed significantly smaller.
Then the repeated scenes. It hurt! There were so many scenes that were reused with different dialogue or no dialogue dubbed over.
I was hoping for an enjoyable epic monster brawl. But the repeated scenes did nothing to that effect. It felt like a cheap climactic brawl.
I'd say I wasted my time, but I really wasn't about to do something better. So I shall just say that the movie sucked!

stupidly entertaining

There was nothing good about this movie. Acting, dialogue, direction, graphics, etc. were all bad, but it had a PLOT. Does the 10 second clip after the credits mean there will be a sequel?
