This movie is terrible but that's why it is hilarious!
26 August 2012
Summary: The rating I gave the movie is because it's technically really bad, but that's the reason it's so funny. The acting, the editing, and the special effects are all terrible, but watching all of the mistakes is the fun part. The continuity errors are hilarious, and you are laughing through the entire movie because of all the mistakes. The story isn't actually that bad, so if the movie was made better, it could actually be pretty good.
Mega Pirahna was ridiculously terrible (Awesome!), this is ridiculous AND terrible.

Summary: Perhaps I have been hoodwinked. Mega Piranha resparked my love of shonky B Movies like the adrenalin shot Vincent Vega gave Mia Wallace, and I immediately sought other examples. I unfortunately forgot that adrenalin shots are not Plan A, B or C, but to paraphrase Earl Bassett in Tremors "something you do when a plan fails". How's that I just referenced two 10 out of 10 movies to help me describe a 4 / 10 crapfest!
Move over Cabin Boy..Sharktpus is the worst film ever now
4 November 2011
Summary: I used to think Cabin Boy was the worst movie ever made, but I was wrong. There are no words to describe the terrible acting, the lame effects, the lack of flow, etc. When the tongue-in-cheek jokes are predictable, you know it sucks. I attempted to watch it twice, but did not make it past two commercial breaks. I am sure even Charlie Sheen makes fun of Eric Roberts for this movie. I just hope the other "actors" careers recover from this.
Summary: I do admire this things that legendary B-movie producer has done for cinema. Too bad he's collaborating with the SyFy Channel. I don't normally watch SyFy giant bikini-girl eating monster movies, because they're just so awful. But, I've had a lot of request for you, the readers, to watch and review this movie that has become a sort of internet meme. Paraphrasing Paul Stanley of KISS here: All right Detroit, YOU WANTED THE BEST? Well you got Sharktopus. Deal with it. Dr.
Summary: Saw this with beers and expected to laugh at the whole thing, but this was below all. I'm not sure why they made it in the first part... The name of the movie is really the best part of it all. Period. The effects are extremely unrealistic and there's no feel at all, as soon as the sharktopus shows up it's so detached from the environment to the point it feels like watching a cartoon blended with live characters or vice versa - in other words... too damn noticeable!
Summary: A half-shark, half-octopus creature created for the military, creates a whole lot of terror in Mexico while a scientist (Eric Roberts) who helped created it tries to capture/kill it. I had just about as high of expectations and anticipation as one could possibly muster for this film. I received word roughly two months in advance that I would be receiving the Blu-ray and I checked my mailbox day in and day out, eagerly awaiting its arrival.
Summary: Sharktopus delivered exactly what it promised. It was badly acted, badly scored, badly edited, badly shot, badly written, bad special effects, bad continuity, and probably badly catered. However I want a copy of that 'Sharktopus' song from the opening credits to use as my wife's ring-tone. That being said, I still enjoyed watching it. I don't watch these types of moves to be challenged, merely entertained.
Summary: It's been obvious for some time SyFy's in on the joke about how campy these hokey effect mutant monster flicks of theirs are. Just ridiculous hokum for some MST3K style cheap laughs. The latest rampaging beast is a shark/octopus hybrid creature set loose by (let's say it all together): genetic testing by a rogue scientist being backed by the military. Yay for those generals and scientists dopes!
No wait don't criticize this movie it is suppose to suck
26 September 2010
Summary: This is not a horror or an action sci-fi movie. It is a comedy, but not your normal kind of comedy that you are used to seeing. There are no crazy characters or silly jokes. The real joke is in the acting, the directing, production design etc. Sharktopus was made to be terrible so the audience will laugh at how bad it is. I don't understand why people take this movie seriously. With a title like sharktopus how could you?
Summary: I love campy sci-fi. I expected with Eric Roberts in it for the movie to be -- well, watchable if not even enjoyable. Sadly, it was not enjoyable. Nor was it funny. It wasn't campy. And it certainly wasn't fun to watch or even amusing. It was pitiful. The scenery is the only decent thing in it. The dialog is bad. The CGI is bad. The effects are bad. The acting when being attacked was a single action only -- scream and fail your arms around.
