A new mega shark threatens to destroy humanity. The government creates an exact robotic copy of the shark, either equal to or greater than the original. Now they must fight to the death while people and whole cities get in the way.
Nothing can stop the mighty Mega-Shark; not even the colossal sauroid in Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus (2010). This time, the apex predator of the ocean wreaks havoc in the Port of Alexandria in Egypt; but, the U.S. Navy and the engineer, Jack Turner, have come up with an ambitious solution to this devastating problem: an AI-powered, autonomous shark-like submarine named the Mecha-Shark. Now, for the first time in a long while, humankind has an all-powerful champion on its side to crush the underwater menace; however, after a disappointing first encounter with the living terror of the sea, man's creation and Megalodon engage in battle, threatening to level Sydney. Can Jack find a way to avert the ultimate battle between Mega-Shark and Mecha-Shark?Written by

Bad Even for The Asylum Standards
Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark (2014)
BOMB (out of 4)
Once upon a time we were given GODZILLA VS. MECHA GODZILLA but The Asylum has delivered a giant killer shark vs. a man-made steel shark. That's pretty much the only storyline that you need as we have a giant real shark doing damage so the government creates a mechanical shark to go after it. Oh yeah, Christopher Judge and Elizabeth Rohm play a couple trying to kill the real shark. This is the third film in the series and perhaps I'm just growing tired of them but I really, really, really hated this movie with a strong passion. Yes, the first two films in the series were bad but so are countless other "one giant vs. another giant" movies. I really don't expect great acting, award-winning direction or anything of good quality but I do hope to be entertained at the very least. A lot of times these movies are entertaining simply because they're just downright fun and know not to that themselves very seriously. Sadly, that's not the case here as the screenplay, direction and everything else is so serious and so over-dramatic that you really have to wonder if anyone had ever seen one of these films before. Why on Earth this thing was made so boring, so dramatic and so unfunny is beyond me but there's just not a single second of this film that's entertaining. Even worse is that the movie doesn't really feature any good kill scenes with the two monsters and instead of action scenes we're given really bad dialogue sequences that just drag on and never go anywhere. The performances are what you'd expect from a movie like this so I'm not going to blame the actors too much. The direction certainly isn't all that memorable and especially with some downright awful and horrendous slow-motion sequences, which just made me want to hit the stop button. Again, if you're going to make a low-budget monster movie like this, don't forget you're making a low-budget monster movie. Those who view these want to have fun.
