Shark Attack 3: Megalodon is a 2002 action-adventure horror film that is directed by David Worth and stars John Barrowman, Jenny McShane, Ryan Cutrona, and George Stanchev. The movie is produced by Nu Image/Millennium Films and was released straight-to-video. The film takes place in Mexico, where a group of divers discovers a sunken ship that contains a very large and ancient shark tooth. The tooth, later identified as belonging to the prehistoric megalodon, attracts the attention of a group of treasure hunters who decide to search for the beast. Meanwhile, lifeguard Ben Carpenter (John Barrowman) and his team are trying to keep the local beaches safe while dealing with a group of unruly tourists.
Soon, the megalodon begins to attack boats, beachgoers, and divers, causing chaos and destruction in its wake. Ben, who has a personal vendetta against the dangerous predator, decides to take matters into his own hands and goes on a mission to hunt down the beast.
As the body count rises, Ben teams up with marine biologist Cataline Stone (Jenny McShane) to try and stop the megalodon once and for all. Together, they come up with a plan to lure the shark into a trap using a chain of baited boats. But the megalodon is smarter and more powerful than they ever imagined, and the battle that ensues is one of epic proportions.
The film boasts a mix of practical and computer-generated effects to bring the megalodon to life. The shark design is impressive, with its massive teeth and size, and the attack scenes are intense and gruesome. The film is also notable for its over-the-top dialogue and hilariously bad one-liners, including the infamous line, "That's a big fish!"
John Barrowman gives a solid performance as the heroic lifeguard with a dark past, while Jenny McShane delivers a convincing portrayal of a dedicated scientist. The supporting cast, including Ryan Cutrona and George Stanchev, also do a good job in their respective roles.
Shark Attack 3: Megalodon is not a high-brow cinematic masterpiece, but it does deliver on its promise of mindless fun and excitement. It's a movie that doesn't take itself too seriously and embraces its B-movie status. Fans of shark movies and action-adventure films will find plenty to enjoy in this entertaining romp.
