Failed in All Aspect

People who interested in this kind of movie usually don't expect good story. They tend to look only for the gore, the special effects, or nudity. Well, this movie sucks in all those three aspects. The gore is laughable, the special effects are very cheap, and the nudity is none. Don't waste your time watching this garbage.

Not your average weekend getaway.

Misty Talley directs this Scfy presentation that is actually a little bit scarier and more than a little bit funnier than one would expect. Also known as SHARK ISLAND, finds four friends wanting to get away for the weekend. Redplumb Island, Louisiana is the chosen spot for a perfect weekend. The opposite side of the island, that is not crowded with the fancy folks in their big houses. An experimental shark has been created off shore with the belief that there is some shark DNA with the potential of being helpful instead of harmful for humans, helping people live longer. Of course, something goes awry (a hurricane) and the experimental shark escapes its control center and begins attacking other sharks. Guess what? Innocent people get in the way; so much for living longer!

Interesting story with characters you actually like. Of course, there is always one you want to see "go" first. Some of the CGI is a bit off kilter, but overall a fun watch. Filmed near Madisonville, Louisiana.

Cast includes: Cassie Steele, Sloane Coe, Ross Britz, Becky Andrews, Jason London, Roger J. Timber and Laura Cayouette.

Not as fun as a punch in the face!

Misty Talley directs this film written by Greg Mitchell... my initial thoughts are that perhaps they shouldn't have bothered.

Three 'hot' chicks and a boyfriend go to Redplum Island for a weekend getaway. Locals don't call the island Redplum anymore, they refer to it as Shark Island... what could possibly go wrong you ask? Well, near the island is an apparently closed down research facility... still wondering what could go wrong? Well in those few sentences I've just used I've created more tension then in the entirety of the film! OK, so the research facility hasn't closed officially, they've been testing regeneration and they've been testing on sharks because they have a similar genetic make-up, apparently. The test subject, project "Bruce", escapes and starts attacking other sharks around Redplum island. Initially the attacked sharks are killed but they soon come back to life for more blood fuelled mayhem. The residents aren't safe; even if they aren't gobbled up by the sharks anybody who is bitten by a shark and survives becomes a zombie further endangering the populous of the island. Even with the help from the head of security at the research facility, Max Cage (Jason London), it's going to be a tough fight for survival.

The CGI is dire and embarrassing at best. How can a film from 2015 look so poor and cheap? I knew this was going to be a poor film before I started watching, it's a Sy-Fy film so of course it was going to be bad. It's typical of the poor films they pump out but at least some of those bad films at least have one or two redeeming features, maybe an original story, maybe tongue in cheek humour - this film had nothing redeeming and the film took itself far too seriously which is it's own downfall. The acting is pathetic and the characters seem to do things which will leave you shouting at the screen in frustration. Jason London is perhaps the most seasoned of the actors in this film and I struggled to believe him. The script is bad, the plot is predictable and the... oh let's face it, it's all pretty poor.

In summary, I think somebody at Sy-Fy had some money left over from one of the "Sharknado" films and decided they had better spend it. That person probably had a nagging girlfriend or relative that desperately wanted to be in a movie but had no acting experience. They also had a friend who promised to write a brilliant story. Combine those things and hey presto you have this film; a film that you could only enjoy if you were drinking heavily and not really watching the film at all but it was on in the background. Sorry, 2 out of 10.
