Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus [2009]

I mean really, Mega Shark and Giant Octopus, what’s next Giga Elephant vs Humongous Giraffe?mega shark Everything about this movie is cheesy, from the script to the effects and cast. During the exploration of sea, a minisub with one hot female and one fat guy, accidentally saw that these two jokers where unfrozen after millions of years. The minisub looks like something that was built by blind people, at 03.45 when she says cut the engine fat guy presses something that looks like rubber kids toy. And what’s with all the random shots of the ocean, I guess they are really important to the story and were really cheap to shoot. I could go on and on, but it’s much more interesting to discover these things. You get the laughs, but you also learn something about movie-making and next time it’s going to be much easier to spot a bad movie.

The Mega Shark or Sharkzilla as it is called in a movie, has the amazing ability to jump from sea and bite the flying airplane. Of course airplanes are the natural enemy of the shark, and using its awesome power shark jumped 12000 m (35000 ft) in the air (The cruising altitude of a normal commercial jet airplane today is around 12000 m (35000 ft)). Meanwhile the octopus was fighting his archenemy, an oil rig, or he was just thirsty? He also possess the ability to use his tentacles to smash jet planes flying at insanely high speeds, but you do not fuck with the Giant Octopus. Classic outrageous script combined with awful acting equals good fun. Enjoy this mega movie. Although there is some feeling that the director was aiming for this, people will want to see a movie with sharks eating planes…
