When Andy shoots at Sharktopus to distract it from the reporter, he uses a machine gun. It shows him shooting the gun and the next shot is his shots bouncing off the ship and the creature. A second later, the camera shows Andy without a gun in sight. See more »

Quotes

Captain Jack: Attention all hands. This is your captain speaking. We're getting more reports of this half shark, half octopus creature that's terrorizing the coast, but please don't panic. There is a way we can stop this thing. Virgin sacrifices. Yes, the Mexican Fish and Game Commission assures me the only way to appease this beast is to offer it a beautiful virgin, preferably 18 to 25 years old. I repeat - sharktopus wants our virgins.

For the love of god
14 December 2010 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Sharktopus delivered exactly what it promised. It was badly acted, badly scored, badly edited, badly shot, badly written, bad special effects, bad continuity, and probably badly catered. However I want a copy of that 'Sharktopus' song from the opening credits to use as my wife's ring-tone.

That being said, I still enjoyed watching it. I don't watch these types of moves to be challenged, merely entertained. This movie was so bad that I found myself doing an internal MST3K to it.

Congrats to SyFy to finally getting it and playing the whole thing as tongue-in-cheek as you did. These SyFy original movies are not good, and here you finally admitted (more or less) to that fact up front.

Thank you SyFy and Roger Corman for yet another (not) cinematic tour-de- force and another enjoyable Saturday night.
