Fun, cheesy and enjoyable Sci-Fi Channel creature feature
4 August 2014 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

After accidentally loosing the latest genetic bio-weapon, a team tracks down the last remaining sharktopus to use as their own muscle in bringing the mutated creature back under control while both creatures terrorize their sea-side community.

This was a rather enjoyable and exciting creature feature that really has a lot going for it. One of the better elements here is the connection made between this and the original so that it can connect the two despite the creature having been definitively disposed of from that effort, and the way it goes about making sure that it's coherent with each other is quite a nice stroke because it plays such a huge part of the film as a whole. By having the marine biologist find it and keep it at the park, it's able to bring about the later scenes there where it gets captured and loosened after the other creature, which manages to be quite an interesting feat there. The fact that the two creatures are given plenty of screen-time here is another solid factor in keeping the action flowing along nicely and keeping this from really getting too dull and slow with the film quite easily being able to slip into an endless round of exposition about the two different creatures and where they came from, but instead this manages to forsake that with a few small sections to give us a great idea about what's going on while still providing this with the type of information needed to stay interesting throughout since we know what's going on here. The leaves the action to be quite enjoyable here with numerous attacks from each creature both on the locals and also attacking each other, which is cheese-filled goodness the first few times around with the prolonged battles providing exactly the kind of extended action scenes that keep these interesting while never forgetting its' target audience in the slightest, and that's an impressive feat to be accomplished here. There's a few small problems of concern, mainly in the fact that the subplot about the creature being stolen as part of some terrorist plot being quite unnecessary and generally provides the film with absolutely nothing positive about it in this regard. The story is crammed into the film for the sake of getting the body count even higher yet the purpose of setting it loose could've been accomplished without his involvement or forcing those extra-lame set-pieces into the film that hinders the overall pace to deal with this situation that really shouldn't have been there. As well, the usually-abysmal CGI for these efforts is still something that needs to be fixed due to the frequent size changes they undergo as well as the inability to interact with the rest of the people around them in the shot, which is what is starting to become a major problem in these kinds of efforts. Otherwise, this one is a lot more fun than it should be.

Rated R: Graphic Violence and Language.
