Why do people keep wasting money making this junk? It isn't fun. It isn't funny. It doesn't have a micron of entertainment vale. IT DOESN'T HAVE ANY VALUE AT ALL. Don't watch it, just give it a bad review. Let's put this garbage in the trash where it belongs.

Waste of time and $$

When an 8 and 10 year old can't stay interested and protest "that's so fake", it's not a good thing. I went into this with very low expectations, but not low enough apparently. Just wait until you see the Dynomite kid, from Goodtimes. Very sad indeed Jimmy.

Pretty fun movie, though owning it is something only a collector may want. The CG is pretty poor, but there is plenty of action. One thing that actually surprised me is that i cared for the lead actors. I felt that there was some well thought and acted characters. Sure there were plenty of shallow characters and shark bait, but the leads did their job well and i really connected with them rather than them being there simply to move the plot or fill between set pieces.

Jaws? No.

Among my favorite monsters are giant sea creatures: megaladons, giant squid etc. This film is definitely of the B type (Jaws set
the standard) but the shark is really big & the film is lots of fun. The c.g. could be better, but lower-budget sharks usually suffer
from noticible overlay/pixel errors. That's what divides the really scary sharks from the not-so-scary ones. I love films that really
frighten me, but the fun-scary kind are good too. So, bring on Supershark & his friends, & pass the popcorn.

I ordered Super Shark and did read that it was used but in good condition. I received it and couldn't wait to watch the movie which I did that same night, The case was in the shape I expected Good but worn and the movie played like a new one so I'm thrilled

Too sexy
Verified purchase
I was a little disappointed how much sexiness and inappropriate dressing was in this movie. I rented it in order to see the sharks but had to wade through the non-shark stuff first.

Michael Butt's review in March 2012 was right on. Cheesy is the best word to describe this movie.

I gave this movie 5 stars because it is a perfect bad shark movie: absurd plot, bad acting, incredulous script, bikini-clad babes running around, and cheesy special effects. So if you are looking for a movie that you can have lots of laughs because it is completely preposterous, then this is your movie. My nephews (teenagers) and I search for the most ridiculous movies that we can watch together late on a weekend night to laugh at. There are so many scenes that just make you roar with laughter, like when a girl in a bikini uses an umbrella to fight off the enormous shark that looks as big as a house instead of just running to high ground where the shark can't get her.

There are so many annoying characters in this movie that at times you are rooting for the shark to eat them, and he usually does. Jimmie Walker is very loud and annoying as the DJ, but he fits in well in this movie. He just can't say Dy-No-Mite enough times to satisfy himself.

This is the perfect movie to just sit at home with family on a lazy Saturday and have a few laughs because it is so absurd. My nephews and I just loved it. I highly recommend it to those looking for a really bad and incredulous shark movie. You will be entertained! If you are looking for a Jaws-type movie that has a morsel of realism to it, then this is not your movie.

Yes, this shark can jump out of the water and catch aircraft in the sky and can even use his flippers to chase people down on the beach. The movie even has a walking tank that has robotic legs that can kick a shark in the face. It just doesn't get better than this!

I highly recommend this movie if you are interested in absurd shark movies.
