* NoBudget: In so very many ways. The Sinister Government Agency is always guarded by the same guy. All the naval hardware is stock footage. Location shooting at a powerplant serves for a ship, a lab, and a Sinister Government Agency. And (as noted below) they got their money's worth out of the effects shots.

* ShoutOut: [[LargeHam "It rises!"]] (seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fa7ck5mcd1o here]] at 0:28). Which was a surprisingly cool ShoutOut to the 1956 MobyDick.

A [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs prehistoric]] [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever giant]] [[GiantSquid octopus]] and a {{Megalodon}} shark have been [[HumanPopsicle frozen in an Alaskan glacier]] for millions of years when they're suddenly freed by illegal sonar experiments / a panicked pod of whales / a crashing helicopter / global warming / ice melting due to the proximity of a HotScientist in a minisub -- it's not clear which. They immediately take up where they left off -- eating everything in, on, and even above the ocean in order to fuel their vast bulk. Two {{Hot Scientist}}s, a [[TheProfessor Professor]] and a JerkAss [[TheMenInBlack Man In Black]]-- aided by the US and [[KaijuDefenseForce Japanese]] navies -- team up to combat this [[SeaMonster undersea menace]].

An ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin movie, clearly aiming for CoolVersusAwesome. Whether it reaches it is up to you.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Let's [[RuleOfCool leave aside]] how a [[FlyingBrick 50-ton]] shark could leap high enough to catch an airliner flying at who knows how many miles-an-hour (or how the shark would even know it was there in the first place). The scientist main characters play up the standard idea in films that only [[ArmiesAreEvil insensitive ecological morons]] would kill such wondrous creatures, and insist that they will only help if the military promises only to capture the monsters. They ignore the fact that feeding these things would require the [[BrokenAesop destruction of most of the ecological systems of Earth]].

* HelicopterFlyswatter: Uses the standard version when the octopus swats a fighter plane, and takes it far beyond credibility when the shark ''leaps 30,000 feet up to nom an airliner''.

* TemptingFate: You ''never'' tell a stewardess you're going to be married in two days, because you just ''know'' a giant prehistoric shark will leap 30,000 feet into the air to chomp your Boeing 747! I mean, it's just common sense, right?
