Thoughts on Megalodon Rising

Megalodon Rising is a sequel to a film that already wasn’t very impressive. Where we spend most of the time watching a military standstill. Keeping the megalodons a secret from us all, with any attacks being from afar,.Never looking like they are remotely real. This is a sequel that does feel even worse than the original, leaving us wanting it to be over quicker than anything before. It is slow, aimless and just doesn’t work. The only highlight of the film comes from the diverse cast involved in the film.
