    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.

    One doesn't go into a movie called Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus expecting a masterpiece out of it. This movie is a huge disappointment with a misleading title. Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus is the California coast is terrorized by two enormous prehistoric sea creatures as they battle each other for supremacy of the sea. Well that's what my DVD box told me, but it's actually about scientists trying to killed these two giant sea creatures and it's boring beyond words. I knew I was immediately in trouble when the opening title said "The Asylum Presents", which is the same company that made the incredibly stupid Mega Piranha. One thing I notice upon viewing is that there was barely any footage of Mega Shark and the Giant Octopus which I found disappointing. How could anyone not be entertain seeing a giant shark jumping from the ocean and taking down an airplane or seeing that same shark taking a bite of the Golden Gate Bridge. Other than those two moments the movie has nothing to offer. If you want to see it just for the battle you'll be extremely disappointed since it last 20 seconds, and halve of it is stock footage from different angles. All that happens is the shark struggling when the octopus grabs and the shark rips off a tentacle of the octopus and he even rip offs the same tentacle in the stock footage. This movie was a huge letdown and offers nothing for those who enjoy watching bad movies for the comedic values. The acting is not even worth mentioning since no one clearly cared about what they were doing. I can't blame them, when you have to deliver lines like "Those guys have been frozen in ice for millions of years. Wouldn't you be a little horny?". This movie can cause seizures since it's constantly using white flashes to transit from scenes to scenes. The special effects aren't really special and it's pathetic how bad it is. What's more shocking is that this movie actually had a theatrical release which makes this movie are the more pathetic and demonstrates the filmmakers lack of talent to make a good, let alone watchable movie. Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus is simply a bad movie that rarely entertainments. Even if you enjoy watching bad movies this is one worth skipping.

    "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus" is the most ineptly made film I have ever had the sheer displeasure of encountering. Even as an intentionally bad motion picture, this one sucks.
