Nine years after the events of GHOST SHARK Jack Broody is the mayor of Auckland, New Zealand, and former Lieutenant Commander Tony Palantine is down and out on the streets. The mayoral electoral campaign is underway and Broody is down in the polls, with newcomer Marco Guerra winning the hearts and votes of the public. But people start turning up dead all over the city, and it soon becomes clear that GHOST SHARK is back. Desperate not to repeat the mistakes from his former life, Broody calls in expert ghost shark hunter Tom Logan to defeat the undead beast once and for all. But Logan carries with him demons of his own. With the election fast approaching and Ghost Shark taking more souls by the day, can Broody and Logan save both the mayoralty and the city?Written by

I have seen the 2013 movie "Ghost Shark" and wasn't particularly impressed with it. Little did I know that they actually made a sequel to that movie two years later. Now in 2020 I was presented with the chance to sit down and watch the 2015 "Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws". And since I haven't already seen this, of course I opted to watch it.
Granted, my expectations were slim to none for the movie, as the first movie wasn't all that impressive.
Lo and behold, "Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws" was a horrible movie through and through. The storyline was just atrocious, and felt like something that directors Johnny Hall and Andrew Todd just came up with as they went along and were shooting the movie. It was a super weak plot line, and the characters were just pointless.
And as far as this movie being called "Ghost Shark", well you hardly see the actual ghost shark for a whole minute throughout the entire movie if you count the on-screen-time together. The ghost shark actually felt like it was a mere backdrop to base a pointless storyline upon. And when you actually do get to see the shark, you just gawk at it in disbelieve. It was a still image of a translucent shark. Yeah. It didn't even move, except for some horrible floating around on the screen. The CGI team - if they had one - didn't even bother to animate a shark to make it look just a bit realistic and life-like. No, they just went with a copy and paste solution.
Some of us suffered through the ordeal that is known as "Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws", so you don't have to. And trust me, you don't want to. Do yourself a favor and stay well clear of this stinker.
My rating of "Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws" is a staggering one out of ten stars. This is definitely among the top 10 of horrible movies I have had the misfortune of sitting through.
