Mega Load of Croc

Deep in the Congo a group of miners stumble across a prehistoric crocodile, a colossal beast which miraculously animal hunter Nigel Putnam (Gary Stretch) manages to capture to transport back to America via boat. Unfortunately on the way back they have an encounter with a mega shark which the entire Navy have been hunting down with no success. Now with two mega beasts on the loose there is big trouble ahead. But there is even more trouble as that giant crocodile is laying some eggs.

As a rule I prefer to watch good movies but once in a while I like to watch a piece of junk, not because I want to watch something which will be a waste of my time but something which entertains through being bad. It is why having watched other movies in the series that I watched "Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus" expecting nothing more than trashy special effects, daft action, juvenile humour and a whole list of things which generally stink but to a degree where they become amusing. Sadly I have to tell you that "Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus" goes past that point and ends up just a bad movie.

Now in fairness "Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus" ticks every single box as to what I expected; the storyline is daft, the special effects are horrendous, the dialogue is riddled with cheese and the acting leaves a lot to the imagination. Yet despite ticking one box after another it still managed to leave me under whelmed and all I can put it down to is lack of a star. The other movies in the series had the like of Tiffany and Debbie Gibson who whilst not great actors were memorable but here there is no one who is memorable who draws you in to watch the nonsense.

What this all boils down to is that "Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus" is not only a bad movie but one which sadly fails to entertain through being bad. For me it lacks that someone, that actor who can draw you in to the nonsense and make all the terrible dialogue and poor special effects entertaining.
