The title says it all. It’s about a fight between a Megalodon and a giant octopus. It’s got terrible special effects, worse acting, and frequently dives head-first into the realm of Making Absolutely No Sense. All the things that make for a great B-movie.
Now, personally, I had my money on Giant Octopus. I’ve seen some videos of a regular one versus a regular shark, and, surprisingly, it won. I don’t know about you guys, but those things are scary as hell, all those legs and those weird eyes… But when half-way through the movie Mega Shark dove out of the water and took out a 747? I was starting to second-guess myself.
Now, that’s a scene that I would like to talk about. Here’s how it plays out: You see the plane (done on what looks like a movie-maker program that comes free with your computer), then you see the passengers. They hit some turbulence. A guy stands up, and the stewardess assures him that everything’s fine, it’s all under control, to which he replies “I’m getting married in two days.” She smiles, reassures him, he sits down slightly more on the calm side…
Then he looks out the window.
AND THEN THROUGH THE WINDOW YOU SEE MEGA SHARK JUMP UP OUT OF THE OCEAN AND BITE ONTO THE PLANE!
That’s the most badass thing I’ve EVER seen. PERIOD. It takes the entire plane into the water and everyone dies. Whoa. I watched that scene five times after the movie was done. It’s so worth it.
Anyways, the rest of the movie centers around what appears to be a government conspiracy trying to cover up these attacks, of which there are a couple more. Eventually, a research team decides that they have to bring them both back to the scene where they both froze out of the prehistoric ice, so that they can finish the epic battle that they started 300 million years ago.
Who will win? Mega Shark? Giant Octopus? Place your bets.
