I know all the hipsters are excited for this epically terrible straight-to-DVD crapfest starring Debbie “Call Me Deborah Now”* Gibson and some cheap CGI. They’ll probably watch it wearing trucker hats and drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon.
But to me, it looks like a bunch of suits from SciFi got together and went “Kids today are into ridiculously bad bullshit, let’s do something with that!” It looks this terrible on purpose, and that kind of takes the fun out of it. It’s the difference between getting $20 for mowing the lawn and taking the trash out, and just stumbling over a $20 bill in the parking lot. It’s not as fun if you gotta work for it!
I think this is the Snakes on a Plane effect. But you ain’t ever gonna top SoaP, people. Stop trying. That was lightning in a bottle. Although I will admit to being mildly curious about the scene with the airplane. Apparently “Mega” means that this shark can fly, breathe out of water, and digest metal?
