Dinoshark (2010)

DINOSHARK: The name says it all. Half-dinosaur, half-shark... All terror! The Mexican resort town of Puerto Vallarta is in for a big shock when a giant prehistoric monster sets its sights on the local waters. DINOSHARK joins DINOCROC, SHARKTOPUS, and countless other terrible direct-to-TV travesties that have been released through Roger Corman's production company. Director Kevin O'Neill only looks to entertain while strictly following the tired old formula laid out in JAWS. The novelty of the creature quickly wears off after it chomps through the first five of six victims, but then the tedious plotting leaves it with nothing else to do for the rest of the film but commit random acts of violence against crocodiles and girls water polo teams. B-movie fans can expect plenty of corny dialog and ridiculous antics along the way, not to mention the tremendous amount of computerized gore. Anyone who is expecting anything more out of this silly creature feature deserves to be disappointed.

Rating: 4/10.
Entertainment: 6/10.
Gore: 5/10.

  1. What the heck is there left to cross gene pool ?. Garden gnomes with frogs .. Frogno The Killer Collection. You will never be safe in your own gnome again !!!.
    Here's hoping some respectability comes back to the monster from the ocean movie. Perhaps the upcoming big budget monster shark flick Meg could be it ?.

  2. The sad thing is that no matter how bad I know it will be, I can't help but be instantly drawn to any film called DINOSHARK! I still have high hopes that SHARKTOPUS will bring the laughs it deserves!

  4. I rented SHARKTOPUS about a month ago and fell asleep about an hour into it. Awful movie. For a film that is intentionally stupid, it was the absolute longest 89-90 minutes I ever sat through and I didn't even manage to see it all. Pathetic. I'll likely skip this one altogether.

  5. The absurdity of the creature in this one wears off almost instantly, so if SHARKTOPUS couldnt keep your attention, DINOSHARK will kill all future shark and dinosaur films for you.
