Planet of the Sharks (2016)

Skip this Shark

In the future global warming has caused the glaciers to melt and with 98% of Earth now covered in water people are surviving on floating stations made mostly from what can be salvaged. A group of scientists plan to launch a couple of scrubbers into the atmosphere hoping to return the air to how it was before the glaciers melted and expect the water to start residing. But there is trouble as with 98% of the globe covered in water the sharks now rule the planet, swimming in a mass pack and destroying what they come across.

For those who thought "Waterworld" was bad think again as "Planet of the Sharks" is utterly horrendous and that isn't a phrase I use very often when reviewing movies. Now of course I knew not to expect great things from "Planet of the Sharks" even before I watched but this sunk to a new level of stink-idge which made it incredibly difficult to watch. As such I am not going to waste much time other than say we have different factions on flotilla stations under attack from sharks and in particular one really mean shark with the survivors trying to come up with a way of bringing the flooding to an end. None of which is entertaining, enjoyable or thrilling. It is simply poor from start to finish.

What this all boils down to is that "Planet of the Sharks" is bad even for a made for TV movie and whilst I have seen worst movies with weaker effects and poorer acting what there is in this movie doesn't in any way redeem it.
