It seems like everyone is trying to try and find a way to make the world a better place, and why not? There is so much that can be done on our part to help the environment, but instead of doing something about it, we sit back and talk about what to do instead of taking action. The talking is great, but when it leads to not doing anything, well, it is kind of pointless and so many people, including myself are guilty of doing this. Talking about what you are going to do to help and actually following up may be the hardest thing to do, but when you do it, you know that you have actually made a difference in the world, at least for a day.
Starting her new job in a marine biologist lab, Maggie is shocked to see everything that is going on around her. Being led through the lab with a group of students, Maggie gets to see firsthand what happens to the wildlife when being exposed to pollution. With a massive trash island outside of the complex, one in every five creatures pulled out of the water have a mutation and it is mind blowing to her and her fellow explorers. But there is something lurking outside of the lab that nobody knew about and it thrives on the garbage and is looking for a new meal.
Seeing the creatures in the lab acting up, the group finds out that there is a mutated shark in the water that is looking to wreak havoc for them. Ramming the complex and bringing it down, Maggie and her new friends Dr. Nelson, Greg, Ryan, Omar, Alison and Brad are left without a safe place to stay and are forced to make a swim for it to their boat. But with the shark in the water, they do not have much time to get back to any sort of safety. Causing a diversion that costs Dr. Thomas her life, everyone gets on the boat and tries to leave the polluted area, but see that the new three headed shark is right on their tail.
Heading towards the main land, the group sees a party boat that has gotten the shark’s attention over them. Seeing that it is making a bee line towards the boat, the group knows that the shark is drawn by the trash being tossed overboard and they try to warn the kids on deck, but it is too little too late when the shark has laid claim to its new victims. Being able to call for help, Max Burns, the heavy-duty fisherman is on his way to help with the situation, but time is of the essence and Maggie and her friends will have to try to assist until he arrives. As the shark is able to knock people off of the boat, it is also very hungry for flesh and makes its way onto the deck for some fantastic meals. Seeing that the boat is sinking, Maggie and her group are forced back into the water once again, to try and escape their new stalker, but it is a race against time since the shark is looking for anything it can get its teeth on, trash or human.
You know, there is nothing better than a good shark movie to get you in the mood for some above and below water action. As always with Asylum Films, all the rules are off of the table as the shark is able to accomplish much more than we could ever imagine. I loved the group dynamic that was thrown into play in this movie, because it was evident that it was the only way anyone might possibly survive a 3-Headed Shark Attack. I was however upset when they killed Dr. Thomas, she might have added more to the movie and possibly come up with a better way to kill the shark. But you had Max Burns to counter her loss and as any Bad Ass fisherman would do, he was able to take matters into his own hands. With plenty of pollution, a young group running for their lives, a party boat, a fisherman hell bent on killing and a ton of blood, it is just a fun movie that will open your eyes to what is really happening around the world…the pollution, not a three-headed shark, but you never know I guess. Stay Scared.
