Early exposition claims the Sharktopus is for the Navy (presumably the U.S. Navy, given the uniform of the speaker), to go after drug runners. Chasing drug runners is the responsibility of the U.S. Coast Guard, not the U.S. Navy. See more »

Even SyFy itself had to riff this one
26 September 2010 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

It's been obvious for some time SyFy's in on the joke about how campy these hokey effect mutant monster flicks of theirs are. Just ridiculous hokum for some MST3K style cheap laughs. The latest rampaging beast is a shark/octopus hybrid creature set loose by (let's say it all together): genetic testing by a rogue scientist being backed by the military. Yay for those generals and scientists dopes! They've done it again, given us a hungry mutation that chomps anything that moves (except the main stars; it just growls at them with a dumb blank look).

SyFy's own reality show "truth investigator" guy Josh Gates adapts his "this legend is hooey" show narration tone to riff the movie with trivia about its cheap and shoddy production standards. Cast members appeared to poke fun at it in these bits too. Subtly, it seems nobody took this seriously.

It's a Roger Corman B-movie, and even Roger joins in the self mockery fun. He had a cameo that would have been creepy in a normal movie; here it's just goofy (intentionally so). There's plenty of the routine fodder of these kind of deliberately dumb monster movies, (in addition to those already mentioned): bad-acting bikini-clad extras who show up for one scene (and exit quickly in a painful manner if you catch my drift), incredibly bad CGI, a hero standing two feet away from an explosion and being totally uninjured, lots of extras constantly running around playing, dancing, or riding boats, and of course the monster showing up on cue to kill somebody a moment after they say the creature doesn't exist. There are some clever attack scenes, the bungee chomp was classic. Also included: obnoxious journalist with attached cameraman flunky, hero's flunkies, main villain's flunkies, and even an annoying big-mouth DJ with poorly written lines to say.

It's as completely stupid as was intended. Fans of this type of idiocy will find it funny.
