Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark

Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark


Welcome to this call back to the Gatecast era when we would take a step away from the pure Stargate discussions and cherry pick shows/movies that featured the cast and/or crew from the franchise. As it turned out this year Alan was on call and wanted something to pass the time so we got together over skype and watched and chatted about Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark which starred Christopher Judge.

In Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark Christopher plays Jack Turner who along with Rosie (Elisabeth Röhm ) have developed a shark submersible which leads to a full military contract to provide a much larger vehicle. The smaller vessel also includes an advanced AI but when a Megalodon escapes from an iceberg and begins to run amok in the south pacific only the as yet untested “mechashark” can save the day.

The movie was produced by The Asylum who are well known for their straight to DVD or Pay TV offerings at the lower budget range, they often produce highly entertaining movies as long as you don’t hold them up against production with tens times the budget. Yes Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark was never going to win awards (in any category) but it was fun and had some real laugh out loud moments.
