Summary: A lush Mexico vacation spot is terrorized by a mysterious prehistoric creature no one believes exists, except a young fishing boat captain. To prevent a bloodbath, the captain must stop "Dinoshark" before it invades an inland waterway full of pleasure boats and swimmers.
A pretty solid B Movie with a not undetectable undercurrent of paedophilia thrown in for good measure.
I don't mean that as a metaphor or some sort of clever analogy, I mean actual paedophilia by one of the characters. It's not overt, but it's there.
CGI and digital cameras may have helped more people to create films, but its also lowered the quality bar horribly in some areas, especially when it comes to z-grade genre films. There are plenty of bad older works with practical effects, but it's painful to sit through most films made after 2000, which look amateurishly cheap, almost killing off the genre for me personally were it not for the fact great (or fun) ones are still being made. This Jaws ripoff perfectly capsulates this issue.
I have so much to say about this delightful movie. First I want to discuss the amazing writing. I've got some quotes which were used in a casual situation: "Oh I teach enviromental science with a focus on aquatic eco-systems", "A shark does not eat a lifeguard boat, a shark does not have horns!". The narrating is awful. Also, Trace, can grow a moustachybeard in a few minutes. A helicopter gets grabbed by the monster, blood splatter on camera + eaten while parasailing. Mega Piranha is better
