Administrivia/NeedsABetterDescription: Short
!!This movie provides examples of:

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology:
** Megalodon were thought to be shallow water predators. So surviving millions of years in a deep sea vent? Not very likely. Surviving millions of years without anyone noticing? Also not likely. At least the latter point gets a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] on it.
** Subverted by the fact that this is one of the most predominant theories espoused by proponents of the Megalodon's survival. The latter is somewhat justified considering how little of the ocean we've actually explored. Having said that, it's still unlikely.
* CoitusEnsues: The girl actually thinks "The Line" is sweet. [[CutToSex The next shot]] is the two of them having [[ShowerOfLove shower sex]].
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Tolley, the real villain in the piece. He knew about the sharks and did ''nothing''!
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:After the first Megalondon is killed, a ''much'' larger one appears.]]
* {{Fanservice}} - Bikini shots, cleavage shots, skinny dipping, lustful references to Jennifer [=McShane's=] bum, a hot ShowerScene, and, of course, John Barrowman.
* JustDesserts: The human villain leaves the passengers on a boat behind to die when the Megalodon shows up, but he crashes his jetski into the shark's open mouth.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Mr. Tolley.]] And an executive steals his girlfriend's life vest and dives overboard [[spoiler:straight into the mouth of the shark.]]
* LogoJoke: The logo of Apex Communications features a bright red arrow plunging downwards, lampshading its impending financial prospects. Though one doubts even bad investors expect to be ''eaten''.
%% * {{Megalodon}}:
* MonsterIsAMommy: Or in this case, Monster Has A Mommy. One ''big'' mother of a mommy!
* NoisyNature: Sharks do not roar. Especially underwater.
%% * NoTimeToExplain
%% * NextThingTheyKnew
* SoLongSuckers: The CorruptCorporateExecutive abandons his sinking yacht on a jet-ski while giving an EvilLaugh [[spoiler:only to drive right down the throat of the giant shark.]]
* SteelEardrums: Carpenter suffers no apparent ill-effects from an underwater torpedo explosion.
* StockFootage: There's a ton of National Geographic shark footage.
* SuitWithVestedInterests: A two-piece suit, if you will, the resort manager doesn't want the beaches closed but at least wants the problem solved. Then there is Tolley, the owner, whose wires are attracting the shark and who has a big wire junction opening coming up to which he will take a boat full of corporate guests. He knew there was a problem and still doesn't care and goes ahead with the launch of the magical shark attractors and boat ride.
* ThreateningShark: You bet.
* TooDumbToLive: In the climactic yacht attack scene, the passengers, upon realizing their predicament, proceed to fetch life preservers and begin jumping INTO THE WATER with the shark.
