Shark Attack 3: Megalodon (2002)

My Rating

Movie Info

A very large shark has been terrorizing the workers trying to install an underwater cable of the coast of Mexico, so a resort security diver, Ben (John Barrowman), takes it upon himself to put a stop to the killing. However, a tooth he finds is identified by researcher Cat Stone (Jennifer McShane) to be from not a shark, but a prehistoric megalodon, thought to be extinct for 24 million years. With a crew of victims -- er, sailors -- they set out to hunt the beast. But little do they know, the

[An} apropos motion picture maxim for Shark Attack 3: Megalodon would read "this's miserable...Or horrible...Or copyright infringeable."

Sure this one may be "so bad it's good" but there's something about the flick's outright plagiarism that prevents me from offering it even a backhand compliment

Audience Reviews for Shark Attack 3: Megalodon

Possibly one of the greatest bad movies ever made! The fact that it takes itself seriously is what makes it so unintentionally hilarious. Worth watching just to see how bad it is. Congrats to David Worth for directing one of the most enjoyable films in recent years.

This is brilliant! The best worst film ever made, watch the boring beginning just for the ridicules but fantastic ending where the shark eats everything no matter what size it is! John Barrowman is also the (unlikely) hero who camps it up no end. The best thing is they kept all of his ad-lib stuff so quite unexpectedly, half way through a romantic conversation you get, 'I?m a little wired... what do you say I take you home and eat your pussy?" Brilliant!

"How about I take you home and eat your pussy?" What a perfectly respectable and normal chat up line. Works an' all. Yes this piece of crap becomes better the more you drink. A repetitive cgi shark with no texture, obvious that people are going down slides when going in the sharks mouth and of course shots repeated over and over. Like Shark Attack 1 and 2 at the same time. So twice as bad but twice as funny.
