For the love of god

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. This movie was so bad that I found myself doing an internal MST3K to it. Congrats to SyFy to finally getting it and playing the whole thing as tongue-in-cheek as you did. These SyFy original movies are not good, and here you finally admitted (more or less) to that fact up front. Thank you SyFy and Roger Corman for yet another (not) cinematic tour-de- force and another enjoyable Saturday night.

No wait don't criticize this movie it is suppose to suck

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? The plot is that a team of father and daughter marine biologists create a half shark, half octopus to use as a weapon for the navy. Then the remote control mechanism is knocked off and the Sharktopus goes on a killing rampage. Captian Jack (the creator of sharktopus) highers Andy Flynn, a Iraq war veteran, to capture the monster. But when Andy nearly gets killed and looses two of his friends he vows revenge. There you have it. This is not suppose to be the next Jaws or even Deep Blue Sea. This is more along the lines of Maga Shark vs. Gaint Octopus. The director told the actors to be wooden and show very little emotion. The actors wheren't trying to win a Oscar, they wanted a Razzie. I just wish that actors would react to seeing the killings. When ever someone is eaten or torn apart in the movie who ever was witnessing it didn't react. They just stand there with a stupid look on their face. At least scream or try to help the victim. The production is minimal. The props appear to be objects the actors brought from home. The special effect are also bad with Sharktopus constantly changing size. In one scene he's big enough to eat VW Bug, in a later scene he is as big as a human. There are also scenes where the monster is walking out on land. Now I am not a marine biologist, but I am pretty sure that sharks or octopuses can't survive outside of water. Another thing that bothered me was that one of the characters who was named Nicole had some moral hang ups about her father altering the mind of Sharktopus. It is a genetically engineered monster, what does it matter if it mind is tampered with? If you watch this with a critic's state of mind you will hate this movie. In order to enjoy it loosen up and get a sense of humor. Compared to Scy-Fy Channel's other original movies this is the best. Instead of being serious and trying scare the audience. Sharktopus is made to make you laugh. I rated this on level of how entertained I was while watching and gave it a 7 out of 10. Now if I where to rate it based on acting, directing, camera work, etc. Then I would give it a 2 out of 10.

Best part of this movie - The title

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! Imagine a cartoon shark in a shark movie, would that put you off? If yes: Don't see this. Not to mention the poor bloopers in it (aside from the sharktopus), there are a lot of mistakes all the time that also made me disconnect from the "story". This is a piece of CRAP!
