Survivors escape to a deserted atoll, after their boat during a Semester at Sea ship is sunk by a mutated two-headed shark. But when the atoll starts flooding, no one is safe from the double jaws of the monster.
In a world, where the only things alive are sharks and their food, namely... humans where a group of people try to stay alive but are killed by the predators and their crappy acting. Enjoy this movie the best you can but, really you only can if you're drunk af.
It seems obvious that the character "Dr. Roy Shaw" was named for Roy Scheider and Robert Shaw, both stars of "Jaws". One could also suggest that the "Dr." is a reference to Richard Dreyfus's character, also in "Jaws". See more »
My fiance found this one Hulu I believe and thankfully we could watch it for free because I would have wasted money on this cause it is bad enough I wasted time. Though that is not fair, as it was very entertaining to make fun of this film, but riffing this film is like shooting fish in a barrel, just not much of a challenge. The sharks look horrid, like a screen saver coming across the screen and they don't even attempt to make them look real when they are jumping, you have people with accents that are barely audible and what made this one particularly bad was all the talking! I am like, don't cheapen yourself further by acting like this is some high end pretentious movie then throw super jumping sharks into the mix!
The story, the world is completely covered in water due to the ice caps melting and the fact that the people who made this film actually think that could cover the entire earth. Well we have this city called junk city population 72 getting attacked by the sharks right from the start with only one survivor...a girl who one would think is important, but really kind of pointless. Well another city with a population of over 400, though it looks like the same city and looks like it has less people and a scientific center join forces to combat the sharks! Not really, the strange leader of the one city speaks in what I finally figured must be a horrid Cajun accent tries to fight the sharks, and then there is just a whole lot of plans being formed that make no sense as white Ice T, hipster Bill Nye, pointless girl, fat comedy relief guy, surf board girl, Nye's girlfriend and Glen Close come together to talk a lot and once in a while fight stupid jumping sharks.
The actors and actresses in this film are just embarrassing. Honestly, had I gotten this script I would have said "hell no". They play it off so seriously and that somehow makes this all worse! When you see the sharks attack at the beginning this is not a film you are going to take seriously, but that is how it is played off. Not only seriously, but deadly seriously! Cajun lady had me laughing as her plan to fight the sharks was to stab them and have her guy friend then kick them...it worked better than that volcano plan!
So no, this film is bad to the highest degree. SyFy, used to be the SciFi channel and it was a great station. They would play animes, Godzilla films, horror films and they even had MST3K for awhile. Then they went to rather high end television shows and the occasional good home brewed movies. Now they seem to make their living doing mainly horrible shark movies, they should stop being the SyFy channel and just turn into the SharkFy station!
