Mad sharks
4 February 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

John Savage. He was in Godfather III, Do The Right Thing, The Deer Hunter.

In Empire of the Sharks he plays a warlord in a post apocalyptic water based society who has a mechanism to control man eating sharks.

Along with his cohorts they terrorise other colonies for tributes. However they come across a young woman who also has the ability to control sharks without needing any fancy gloves.

This Asylum production made for SyFy is dismal. It is Waterworld meets Jaws without any campy fun.

The special effects are of a typical low standard. The film is so dull, its running length is stretched because there is not enough story. The acting by most of the cast is bland.
