Picked by a few of my twitter buddies, Shark Attack in The Mediterranean is a made for TV movie in Germany that geared to be their version of Jaws. Because of the made for TV part, the lack gore, even the slightest bit, was very obvious and took this movie from horror to suspense; but lacked suspense.
In this 90 minute movie, we see probably only about 10 minutes of actual shark, which looked more like Jabberjaw than Bruce, and when they showed shark underwater, he didn’t look much larger than a real great white, yet they storyline tells us that it is a megalodon that is 5 times larger than the largest great white, especially when they pulled a tooth from a boat and the guy needed two hands to carry it.
Despite the lack of scariness and awesome special effects, the story of using DNA to create this killer shark by hand was not to bad. The dubbing was not the greatest, but I don’t think much dubbing is; it sounded more like a book being read to me than people acting. BUT… in between the bad and the badder, was Germany’s pop icon Jeanette Biedermann’s cameo singing “Do The 69” on the beach during the movie’s climatic scenes.
