Dude, it's got a Mega Shark! AND a Giant Octopus! AND former 80s teen queen Debbie Gibson (!) as a crusading oceanographer! Put 'em all together and that spells AWESOMENESS!
...seriously, though, this was pretty bad (but in a "so bad it's good" way). Acting sucks, script is laughable, the "special effects" are minimal, and the title characters look like tub toys swimming in dish water. Still, I laughed my ass off throughout and enjoyed it thoroughly. There's just something about Giant Monster movies that brings out my inner eight year old.
Watch only if you like really bad movies, have a crush on Debbie Gibson, or you're a masochist.
Pretty much what you expect

"Simply put, if you're here reading reviews about this movie you probably know exactly what to expect out of it, and already know if this is something you will enjoy or not.
It's a wonderfully cheesy movie chock full of over the top moments that border on being just plain silly, but that's the way I like it. If you're a fan of B movies do yourself a favor and give this a watch."
MegaGiant Cheesy fun

"If you don't know that this is a cheesy movie by the title or the cover, there is no hope for you. Where else can you see a giant shark eat the Golden Gate Bridge? Or a giant octopus swat down jets? That would be enough to make me buy it."
It's so much fun!

"Although this movie has a far bigger ambition than budget, it still manageed to delight and entertain me throughout all of its 89 minutes. It's by far the best movie THE ASYLUM has produced yet and while it certainly isn't up to the production standards of big budget hollywood stuff, it is often far more entertaining than the overblown hype Michael Bay and his ilk come up with. Honestly, the movie has a very striking, almost psychodelic look with loads of wild, garish lighting and lurid color schemes. The editing is fast and frantic and the visual effects are occasionally almost passable. The acting is over the top (and lots of fun) and the script is really out there. I truly enjoyed and appreciated this thing a lot. The DVD transfer is especially excellent and on an upconverting DVD player it often approaches bluray picture quality. The super aggressive Dolby 5.1 surround sound will also give your subwoofer a real workout (although dialog is sometimes a bit distorted). Plenty of surround effects as well for an emersive experience. The premise of this one is so goofy and it moves along with a giddy speed that kept me smiling from start to finish. I loved it."
