Review

This third entry in the rather insignificant Jaws simulating Shark Attack series has got the required combination of dead seriousness and ridicule that is often the basis for a cult classic. Unfortunately, Shark Attack 3 isn't quite bad enough. That doesn't mean that any potential viewer of this farce should get his or her hopes up. The quality of the acting, premise and special effects in this movie is amusing at first, but ultimately painful. With that said, David Worth has some useful ideas during the first half, and if you can't seem to enjoy anything else, you'll love it when the painfully synthetic dialogue is relieved by a moment of hilarious ad libbing by John Barrowman.
