Trivia

This show, much like Mermaids: The Body Found (2011), came under criticism from both scientists and ordinary viewers for attempting to present fiction as a non-fiction documentary. The executive producer of Shark Week, Michael Sorenson responded to the criticism by saying that Discovery aired three disclaimers for the special including one that said "none of the institutions or agencies that appear in the film are affiliated with it in any way, nor have approved its contents."

It was actually entertaining, despite a lousy ending...
23 August 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I must admit that I had somewhat expected to see more of the elusive megalodon from this. However, such was not the case to be, and as such, then "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives" was a bit disappointing.

That being said, don't get me wrong. It is not all entirely bad. This was entertaining enough, I just had hoped and expected for something more from it.

The whole documentary feel is right there, and it is like something you'd actually see on these shark programmes. That was really what kept it interesting.

Good performances all round, and the movie is entertaining enough and thrilling enough to keep your attention right to the very end. And ending that didn't come full circle, and just left you sitting there with more questions.

The CGI used in the shots was questionable, which was a shame. And there was also an excessive use of the same repeating footage again and again, which kind of wore thin and became irritating.

But all in all, "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives" is good entertainment if you enjoy sharks and have any kind of interest in this magnificent prehistoric oceanic predator.
