As financial markets panic and shipping lanes shut down, the United Nations begins developing a giant mechanical shark to stop it. Husband-and-wife team Dr. Jack Turner and Dr. Rosie Grey test a prototype off the coast of Hawaii. Two giant squids constrict the Mecha Mk 1, but Rosie electrifies the hull to repel them. Admiral Engleberg brings them to a facility in Pearl Harbor, where the full-sized Mecha Shark has just been completed.

"Monster vs Metal".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.
Sharksploitation is an exploitation film subgenre. The genre surged to popularity with Jaws and its sequels, but fell in popularity soon after. The film Deep Blue Sea brought it back to public prominence. The Sharknado series soared mockbuster sharksploitation to new heights of (sometimes tongue in cheek) fame.
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.The best part of this film was a brief scene that was an homage to the first film's best scene. This is, of course, a showdown between an airplane and a shark... a complete load of nonsense, but highly entertaining.Beyond that, nothing too exciting. I feel like there was more than the average effort put into the special effects, but most of this is nothing new and even by Asylum's cheap standards it is not as much fun as it could be. I get the impression Debbie Gibson shot all her scenes in one day, because she rarely interacts with anyone and is always standing in the same spot... this is even less than "phoning it in".
The Mega Shark movies are the kind that aren't to be expected much from, but even with that in mind I personally didn't consider Giant Octopus or Crocosaurus particularly good, some fun moments, mostly for the so-bad-it's-good value there was, but mostly they were too amateurish and ridiculous to take it even for what they were. Mecha Shark is the best of the three but from personal opinion it was only passable. It is the best-looking of the trilogy definitely, the scenery is very nice as well as the underwater shots and the editing is reasonable. The score is catchy and in a way drives the movie rather than bog it down. The special effects are better than average if not great, a huge improvement on its predecessors anyhow(and I'd go as far to say that much of the underwater stuff was quite good), sure there are a few ropey ones here and there. Much of the acting is not bad at all despite not having very strong material to work with, the playing-it-straight approach is adopted and it suits the movie just fine, doing it without going through the motions. Elisabeth Rohm and Christopher Judge are commanding leads. And the last act is a lot of fun, the pace is snappier and while inevitably predictable some of it is amusing and at times endearingly silly. There is an exception regarding the acting and that is Deborah Gibson in her brief appearance, if she had a bigger role she would have come across as less phoned in. The characters are not annoying as such but are not very interesting, and that is including the shark who is more goofy than menacing. The script mistakes insultingly cheesy for snappy, the jargon is really stilted too and a lot of scenes have dialogue and voice-overs that over-explain things. If there was one word to describe the script, bloated would be it. The concept was ridiculous in the first place, but two thirds of Mecha Shark is rather indifferent until the last act really picks up. That it's predictable is to be expected, but the suffocating pacing, lack of tension or suspense and scenes that are very derivative, with a few parts reminiscent of those from its predecessors(like the mid-air leap jet chomp from Giant Octopus) but also reading too much of inferior copies. They were mildly fun previously while making you feel stupid at the same time, here they were just tired. All in all, at best it's reasonably fun and it is easily the best of the Mega Shark trilogy. But while it is a significant improvement technically and acting-wise, there could have been room to have more fun and the improvement does not translate into the writing department, with a sense of not just trying to do too much but also feeling very bland and indifferent. 4/10 Bethany Cox
You do not need to watch the series of the megalodon in order as evidenced by my discovery that you can be barely awake yet still find the energy to roll your eyes at it. There's a reason why Asylum films either have gone straight to disc or streaming rather than face movie or TV critics because they are so ridiculously convoluted and noisy and filled with action that makes no attempt to advance the plot. This is a starless ZZZ grade action science fiction film that now has the shark being stalked by a shark shaped submarine. Yep, you read that right.The overly dramatic and overplayed music is a weak attempt in all of these films to fool the viewer into thinking that they are watching some things either artistic or intelligent. The characters, like in the other ones I've seen, are horribly written, talking over each other so they don't even hear a possible important point that the other people involved are making. The action eventually just becomes frustrating and tiresome. The use of stock footage is obvious and the film, even at just under 90 minutes, seemingly endless.
The last movie in the MCU (Megashark cinematic universe), and it's terrible. I like how at the start of the movie it talks about how nations are collapsing and the world is in ruin, then it cuts to a clip of people playing football on a beach in Brazil.
Oh my... Mega Shark vs. Kolossus (2015) was both terribly bad and meaningless. The battle between the super-CGI robot and the "realistic looking" shark really sealed this getting the lowest score possible. Wasn't even good for it's camp level.
Matt Nava, one of the makers of Journey, spun out to create his own game studio, Giant Squid, to make this game about underwater exploration. It has awesome, inspiring music from Austin Wintory, and it allows you to feel a sense of wonder as you explore an underwater world. That would can be frightening, as when a shark swims by. Or it can be spellbinding, like when you cozy up to a giant sperm whale or ride on the back of a tortoise. It also has a directed narrative story that makes the game mysterious. 041b061a72
