I was anticipating an exciting, fun adventure film, and instead got Megalodon. The basic premise was good; an investigative journalist and her cameraman are sent out to get a story about a state-of-the-art off-shore oil rig. The rig is about to tap a previously unknown oil reserve deep in the Atlantic. After forty-five excruciatingly boring minutes, they finally dig, and what they find is most certainly not an oil reserve. They have found a "mirror ocean", as the box put it, full of supposedly extinct creatures from 60-70 million years ago. The first glimpses of the Megalodon are simply shadows. Finally, you see the actual shark. The effects were pretty good for the Megalodon, but that was about the only saving grace for this movie. It is fairly well-filmed for its budget range, but the acting was stale. Leighanne Litrell was unconvincing as the (slightly) environmentally concerned, smart-but-pretty journalist. There were a couple of "tragic" deaths, including a cockney (?) man who was, in my opinion, incredibly annoying anyway. The rig itself looked like something out of Star Wars, which may or may not be realistic (I don't know much about real oil rigs myself). I half expected Princess Leia to appear at one of the windows. Finally, in the end (I ended up fast-forwarding the last 15 minutes), they blow up the Megalodon, which disappears in a flash of fire and vapor (yes, underwater). Overall, this movie was a sad attempt at film-making and I pity the actors whose "big break" it was. Luckily for Leighanne Litrell, she married money. She certainly won't be making much off of this.

This movie is terrible. The acting is horrendous and it looks like it was shot with a home video camera for a high school project. I disagree with the previous review - the effects were hideous - so ridiculously fake. The writing was incredibly cheesy and so poorly delivered by misguided talent. I could go on, but not worth my time, or yours. Anything else on this website would be a better investment. More importantly, it would be time better spent.
