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.
