Storyline

Mike fa il cacciatore di squali, ma è un uomo misterioso del cui passato nessuno sa niente, nemmeno la sua donna, Juanita. Poi arriva Acapulco, esperto sub, che fa subito amicizia con lui. Ma la situazione precipita quando si presenta Donovan, accompagnato da Rosy, che in passato ha lavorato con il capitano Gomez per l'Organizzazione. Mike in realtà è l'unico a conoscere la posizione di un aereo inabissatosi con cento milioni di dollari e certo cento milioni di dollari fanno gola a molti, disposti a tutto pur di ottenerli. La caccia è aperta, ma questa volta non agli squali. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

The Shark Hunter on DVD or VHS
26 August 2003 | by (Bergen, Norway) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie almost a thousand times when I was a kid. I had it on VHS. And I loved it every time. But now the tape has been lost for years, and I miss this great movie, especially the music score. Is there anyone out there who can tell me how to get this film? On DVD would be perfect, but I don't think that is possible. Even on DivX or SVCD is just fine. I would be VERY grateful...
