When the mama megalodon eats Esai and the whole boat; you can clearly see as the shark's mouth emerges from the water that its teeth goes through the boat's motor showing that the hole scene is computer animated. Besides the boat is destroyed inside the shark's mouth and the shark has not even closed its mouth; in fact it never closes its mouth. See more »

A good dumb "comedy", really I was laughing 90% of the time
17 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

When I first watched the movie, I recognized a lot of footage from underwater documentaries (the producers should check copywright details with the estate of cmdr. Cousteau & others). The first half of the movie was no more than a lame excuse to show naked women and people being eaten. If you look close you can actually see a lot of editing mistakes. PS. sharks do not roar like some kind of mutated dog in the water !!!

When the director tries to create the feeling that the shark is swimming at a tremendous depth, you can see the surface in the background. The same goes vice versa.

In the second half there are different sharks taking on the role of the lead character. The actual megalodon is displayed as a 30's monster that eats everything in its path. A shark (even a Megalodon), would never eat a full size motorboat or jetski, try passing such a thing true your intestine...?. And why, were people jumping in the water when there is a shark attacking your boat? Why .... you should check it out yourself, you'll find lots of fun things to discuss.
