How could one hate a film where a giant shark jumps out of the sea and brings down a plane?

If ever there was a film that seemed designed with Mystery Science Theater 3000 in mind, this is it.

a goofy if not entertaining piece of filmmaking

The risible special effects and the clumsy acting recall not Roger Corman productions but the ineptitude of Ed Wood, though the result is far less endearing.

Observer [UK]

How this ever got released is a mystery. Unwatchable, almost unreviewable, this stupid monster movie makes the Bela Lugosi swan song Plan 9 from Outer Space look like a masterpiece.

It's hard to believe that a movie with a concept this good, could fail to be entertaining on every conceivable level, but somehow this does.
