Twenty-four million years ago, the gigantic Megalodon, a 20-tonne killing machine with a 10-foot gaping bite, ruled the prehistoric oceans; but, thankfully, it became extinct. However, when the marine biologist, Cat Stone, discovers a massive shark tooth off the Mexican coast, her worst fears surface--the most menacing creature to ever rule the waters is still alive and mercilessly feeding on anything that crosses its path. Now, as the massive beast terrorises the workers during the maintenance on an underwater cable, they must hunt the fierce oceanic killer and destroy it, before there is no one left to stop it. Is there an escape from the jaws of terror? Written by Nick Riganas

15 June 2003 | by nbentonSee all my reviews

Several years ago, I saw a movie called 'Komodo'. Since that time, 'komodo' has been a movie experience I have never forgotten. It was far and away the WORST cinema ever filmed and I felt that I had truly witnessed the pinnacle of human creativity and artistic expression.

Today I saw a movie called 'Shark Attack 3' and everything I had come to believe was shattered. THIS is truly the pinnacle of human existence.

Watch this movie, but beware, all you have come to take for granted, all you have ever believed in, all you have ever loved and cared for will lose all meaning. 'Shark Attack 3' will blow your mind and you will never be the same again!
