Storyline

An offshore drilling accident releases a giant primordial shark. When the shark flies and walks on land threatening to turn a bikini contest into a bloodbath, marine biologist Kat Carmichael arrives to destroy the shark and save beach-goers. Her efforts are stymied by corporate bad guy Roger Wade and his flunky Stewart who are only interested in their own agenda of money, money, money. With time running out for beach loving humans, Carmichael recruits heroic skipper Chuck and fearless disc jockey Dynamite Stevens to help her blast the blood thirsty shark back to a watery grave.

As bad as can be on land and the sea...
6 May 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

There are so many horrible shark movies available, one more laughable than the other, and "Super Shark" is right up there with those movies.

Lets just start off with the theme song for the movie, already there the red line cut in half and went spiraling downward fast. Just listen to the lyrics, it is so lame.

The story in "Super Shark" is as you've seen in many other similar movies. A massively over-sized shark has been released from somewhere far beneath the surface of the sea, where it has been trapped and been waiting to get released. Wait, let's back it up here, shall we? If the shark has been down there for countless centuries or more, how did it survive? What has it been eating? And if hibernating for thousands of years, how fat would it had been required to have been prior to hibernating? Once a movie uses this direction with something being released from underneath the surface of something, you know you are in for something bad.

As for the shark itself, well given the size of it, wouldn't it be requiring a massive food source? Why not prey on whales, big sharks and the like? No, it had to go for humans. Why? Well humans are capable of being scared and feeling terrorized, so that must be why this particularly shark turned to feeding on humans. And walking on land? Are you kidding me? That was such an epic fail on a grand level. A shark jumping around on dry land while eating people. Well, now I have seen that too. The scenes where you saw the shark swimming around in water were actually good enough, because the shark looked alright, but once it was on land, it was just a blemish to look at, what an eyesore.

The acting in "Super Shark" was actually good enough. It was as to be expected of a movie of this particular type. No award-winning performances here, of course, but it wasn't as bad as in other low-budget movies.

The effects in the movie were laughable. I especially enjoyed the US army tank that was walking on four legs, like the AT-ATs from "Star Wars". That was just hilarious. It looked so bad. And to make matters worse, I totally keeled over laughing when it reared up and punched the super shark with its two front legs. That was just epic. Then it was knocked over, and apparently it was made in USA, because it took very little to make it explode. You know how vehicles have a tendency of blowing up almost from just having a door slammed too hard in Hollywood movies. That was just wonderful.

I managed to sit through the entire movie. Why? Well because it was so hilarious and so bad. It was so cheesy that it was actually worth sitting through. I wonder how the people that make these movies actually take themselves and their movie projects seriously. Surely this was meant as a spoof, and not an actual serious movie.

"Super Shark" was as bad as can be on land and the sea...
