AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: With shoddy FX, acting and directing. This isn't so bad it's good. It's just so bad it's terrible.

Critic Reviews for Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7)

Daft, plain daft. With a few daft but spectacular stunts.

August 7, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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

August 7, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This film is bad on every level. In fact, it's bad on levels hitherto unexplored by mainstream cinema.

What a drag. This grabby-titled disaster flick - splashing across the pond on a tidal wave of chuckly publicity - is a damp squib.

They fight, and look rubbish, and one eats an aircraft. Is bad the new good? I wish. Sometimes bad is just tacky.

For those of you familiar with the trailer, you may as well stop here because you've already seen the best bits, pretty much in their entirety.

Audience Reviews for Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus

½

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.

They say this is the best asylum movie. I ask how?

Not the best or the worst of the Asylum's output. But you do get to see Debbie Gibson fight a giant shark and a giant octopus, so it's not a total waste.
