After learning the shark has 4 heads, they know they need to study it, turning to hunter Red (Bruno) to try and capture the shark before it kills more, only for it starting to get deadlier and a threat to anything in the ocean.
Thoughts on 5 Headed Shark Attack
Thoughts – 5 Headed Shark Attack is one of the many attempts to make a wildly over the top shark attack movie, following in the footsteps of the previous 2 and 3 Headed Shark Attack movies. This film does take the film to a new location, one surrounded water, which will work, along with it being a place where shark attacks rarely happen. The story will give us the greedy aquarium owner that is willing to put his own profit ahead of human life, as well as having a preachy message about humans destroying the world by using plastic. Where this film does feel like part of false advertisement is with the shark only have 4 heads for most of the film and the 5th one barely being used other than a shock value moment later in the film. The effects are the cheap CGI ones you have come to expect from this style of movie, leaving most of the film being comical for all the wrong reasons. This is yet another trash action shark movie that doesn’t do anything fresh, falls apart on the CGI and ends up feeling flat by the end.
Final Thoughts – 5 Headed Shark Attack is the typical sloppy shark sequel that knows it isn’t going to be great, but doesn’t fall into the so bad it is fun.
