Fun shark movie
16 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

This movie is about a guy whose best friends are sharks.

He talks to them and gets revenge if anybody hurts them. A science lab does something awful to his sharks and they pay the price. The music score for this movie is quite good and it sets the mood. Also the only thing this movie has in common with Jaws is that it has sharks in it, the plot is totally different. It also has some amusing parts in it too. All in all a fun, amusing shark movie. I give Mako: The Jaws of Death **1/2 out of ****
