Sharktopus (2010)

So Tuesday I am walking around Wal-Fart while nursing my bad arm and what do I see? Sharktopus! Nancy and I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this movie; I mean, what's not to love here? We both tend to like the "genetically altered monster escapes and wrecks bloody revenge upon a deserving and unsuspecting humanity" genre of bad movies. Lately we have been hitting the shark movies a little hard, however, and we need to shift gears a bit. In any case, let's get to it!

It is known as S-11, a diabolical hybrid of shark and octopus created by the greedy genetic scientist, Nathan Sands (Eric Roberts), as the US Navy's next super-weapon. Yeah, that's a good idea.

"Oops! Did you say the RED button?"

When its control implants are damaged during a training experiment, S-11 escapes. Where to you ask? Where else but Puerto Vallarta for a little fun in the sun and the sand? Oh, and maybe for a little something else...

"Well, hel-LLOO there!"

Now a hotshot mercenary/frat boy and Sands' own daughter must stop S-11 from having too much fun in the Mexican sun...

"I got yer Jaws right here, frat boy!" he "nom-noms" his way through the Puerto Vallarta party scene located on the sea...

"Nothing to see here. Move along..." the dock...

"You want somma dis?"

...and even at the resort!

"SURPRISE!! I can walk on land!"

Yeah, this movie has some really funny parts even though the acting is terrible. TERRIBLE! I'm talkin' Sharks in Venice bad. The hero really acted like he would rather be doing shots the whole time and I never could see him as an ex-Navy Seal. Still, the special effects were pretty good. It is worth renting or grabbing a used copy for a couple of bucks.

Rating: 2.5 Bites out of 5
