So, we have Jaws, a movie about a shark causing havoc at a beach. That spawned numerous sequels and ripoffs. One of the better-known is Shark Attack 3: Megalodon, but one of the most overlooked is this little bizarre gem that does something new with the plot: conditions the sharks for counterterrorist ops.

As can be expected, this goes horribly wrong: while one of the five sharks is normally a little more difficult to control, this time around, a programming screw-up means that there are now five rogue sharks, one of which has a nuclear warhead in its mouth.


Tropes contained in this movie:

  • Artistic License – Nuclear Physics: Apparently, a warhead can be avoided if you just go to a different room.
  • Calling Me a Logarithm: A soldier thinks "Kafka" is a swear word, and tells the guy who mentioned it not to talk that way in front of the ladies.
  • Death by Mocking: Some girls are trying to break into a restricted area, through an electric fence. Two of them test it and "pretend" to get shocked. They are the first to get eaten.
  • Hazardous Water: A guy falls off a pier, and flashes around before he gets pulled to safety, despite him already being withing arms reach of those trying to save him.
  • Stock Footage: Every so often, there's a shot of the sharks swimming towards the camera. They swim up separately, meaning that it's easy to cut the shot whenever one shark gets killed.


How well does it match the trope?
