Roboshark (2015)

* (out of 4)

A UFO drops an object into the ocean, which is eaten by a great white shark. Soon the shark turns into the title creature and goes on a killing spree in Seattle, Washington.

ROBOSHARK thinks it's a lot better than the countless other killer/mutant shark movies that have been shown on SyFy or gone straight to the Redbox. This one here likes to think its in on the joke and the dialogue here has a lot of so-called wit throwing jokes at SyFy and other shark movies. The problem is that this film is just downright annoying from start to finish and it doesn't contain a single spark of energy.

There are a lot of issues with this film but we can start with the main story, which has a reporter, her cameraman and her daughter running around constantly trying to get the scoop on the shark. This here leads to a social media storm and several fights with another reporter trying to get the same stuff. All of this was rather annoying and it certainly didn't make you want to like the characters. This is meant for some tongue in cheek action so I won't bash the film for not being scary or anything like that.

The performances, for the most part, are decent enough but we're really not here for that, are we? The death scenes are all bland and bloodless and I'd argue that the CGI shark looks okay considering what this movie is. Still, ROBOSHARK is just a flat out boring movie that can be skipped.
