The megalodon from Mega Shark Versus Crocosaurus is back. When a large chip of iceberg is transported to Australia in order to try and deal with a drought, the seamen in charge of the action find that the megalodon has been frozen inside. As soon as it gets out, it draws a line of havoc and destruction back to its breeding grounds.

I have to admit, I only paid moderate attention to the movie. I saw Elisabeth Rohm and swore it was Kate Hudson. I just couldn’t figure out what the hell Kate Hudson would be doing in a movie like this. My mind fixated on it. In the end, I had to watch the movie a second time to get anything out of it.

There’s not much to say. It’s a typical, Asylum produced, creature feature. There was no meat to the story. The graphics were slightly better than normal, not good, but slightly better.

Lastly, the acting was terrible, except for Elisabeth Rohm (American Hustle, Law & Order, Heroes). Rohm was really good with terrible lines. Once I realized who she was, though, it was kind of easy for me to expect that of her.

Nothing about this creature feature stood out on the negative or positive side. It was a movie. It happened. I will likely never think about it again.

Rotten Tomatoes Critic Score – None
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score – None

Netflix’s Prediction for Me – 2.3/5
Trust-the-Dice Score2.5/5

The Random Rating: PG-13 for moderate action violence. There was some discrepancy in my research for the movie, though. Most sources state that it was unrated, but a couple of sources indicate that Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark might have, at one point, been rated NC-17. If it was, any possible reason is not reflected in the movie at all and just goes to show how corrupt the rating system can be.
