It is known as S-11, a diabolical hybrid of shark and octopus created by genetic scientist Nathan Sands as the U.S. Navy's next super-weapon. But when its control implants are damaged during a training experiment, the beast escapes to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a taste of sun, sand, bikini babes, jet-skiers, spring breakers and beyond. Now a hotshot mercenary, an investigative reporter, and Sand's biomechanical engineer daughter must stop a creature like none ever witnessed before.

It's the new "Plan 9 From Outer Space". That and Sharknado.

With a title like Sharktopus no one should be expecting Shakespeare, but I agree it was a fun movie. Some blood but not gory. The shark is more laughable than scary. All in all an enjoyable movie, and one I would recommend to anyone who likes to laugh at - and with - a movie that makes no pretensions about what it is.

Don't expect this to be an Oscar worthy cinematic masterpiece. It isn't and I doubt it even tried to be. What it is though is good cheesy fun. You might as well suspend disbelief before the opening credits end because it doesn't even strive to be half-way believable, but that is the genius of Roger Corman movies....you know not to expect much and just enjoy the ride. A word of warning though.....it is fairly bloody for a made for tv movie, but the blood and various carnage looks pretty cartoonish.

The title really says it all. I didn't really expect much, Shakespeare it ain't, but found it very enjoyable if just to laugh at the badness of it. The actors reactions are ridiculous, and performances rather wooden, but I'm hoping it was meant to be that way. Definitely not to be taken seriously but, in my opinion, one of Syfy's better efforts.
