Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark (2014)
REVIEW: Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark (an obvious play on the classic Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla) is easily one of my most anticipated B-Movie releases for 2014, so I'm really glad it's being released right at the front of the year so I don't have to wait even longer for it, hahaha. The first movie, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, a couple choice scenes aside, failed to live up to the full cheesy potential that the title implied; Ultimately it was 'ok', but nowhere near what I was expecting from it. The second movie, Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus may have had even lower caliber of CG effects than the previous movie had (which itself was pretty low as it was), but everything else about it was exactly what I had been hoping that the first movie was. Sure, it was beyond stupid but it was a fun kind of stupid and I loved every minute of it, and even now after several re-watches I still love every minute of it.
A year or so back, Asylum announced that if they got so many new Twitter followers by a certain date than they would push ahead on production of a third Mega Shark movie. That goal was unfortunately not met, however it seems they had a change of heart as a half year ago they officially announced Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark, the third and final movie in the series – one last brawl between two gigantic titans, one a mechanical monster and the other a giant man-eating shark with a bad attitude.
After all this anticipation, and after the near-perfect fun romp that the previous middle chapter turned out to be, how did Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark stack up? Let's just say that if Asylum continues down the road that this movie set for 2014 for them, than we're in for one hell of a good year for Asylum releases. Between this movie, Android Cop, and Jailbait (due out later this month), The Asylum is batting three for three in the New Year and it just makes me more excited to see what they have coming down the line.
You were loved by many and hated by probably many more. Your fans stuck by you and you always kept them entertained. May the clouds of Heaven be large enough to contain you, and may the number of Angels be plentiful enough to satisfy your hunger.
