The overall low Amazon rating for this is really unjustified as it has a pretty good plotline and Casper Van Dien is entertaining. A must for Jaws fans!

Shark(from some other footage) Attack
cthoms | West Chatham, MA | 01/18/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Shark Attack is an interesting tale of deceit and stolen shark footage. The movie features some computer harpooning police men and a crazy fisherman turned taxi driver. The most interesting part is all the shark footage... The best scene is after the bad guy/hotel owner is eaten, the shark clearly shown with a hook in it's mouth being pulled towards a boat. This of course has nothing at all to do with the plot. So where did this hook come from? It was probably I was trying to stab in my eyes to stop the pain of this movie."
No teeth to this one

"Maybe I was just expecting something like Jaws but I didn't think this movie that great. I watched it twice now only because I kept falling asleep the first time. The script is very weak and thus so is the story, the acting is flat. Most of the shark sequences are in my opinion taken from existing documentaries (I have seen photographs of at least one scene), you can tell that they are cut into the movie and the parts that where done for the movie are very poorly done. Don't waste your money, if you want to watch it, rent it, don't buy it!"
Not a movie about sharks, a movie about poop

"This movie is the story of a man, Mark Desantis, who is killed. Mark's laptop is harpooned and then he is eaten by sharks. His friend, Shark Expertman, suspects foul play. So he and Mark's sister go on a shark filled adventure to the bottom of the fishing grounds of some local tribesmen. The tribesmen didn't harpoon Mark's laptop though so the heroic duo look elsewhere. Then they find bad scientist. He is bad, or is he? But he is bad, because the whole movie is bad so are all the actors. The shark footage is good, but because it is literally ripped from past "Shark Weeks" it was really familiar. As a final note, the last shot of a shark clearly shows a fishing line stuck in it's mouth. This line has nothing to do with "Shark Attack" but probably had something to do with the Discovery Channel episode it was initially filmed for. This movie should be shark attacked. Poop."
