***** Contains spoilers - but then so does the DVD cover *****

Great cover showing a giant shark (so obviously not a goblin shark) attacking a bikini clad bather, nice tag-line "the legend returns" both of which seem to indicate that some gigantic creature is on the loose.
Originally known as Malibu Shark Attack, the truth is far more mundane.
Undersea earthquakes initially release a group of goblin sharks, a species which "were thought to be extinct, they're extremely rare" and later "haven't been seen on the earth for millions of years", not strictly true they still exist today although they are a deep sea species so not as common as other species of sharks. They do look great though like a cross between a rhino and a great white except when created using cheap repeated CGI scenes. Most seem to be about 10/12 feet long though so not exactly "mega" shark material.
Those quakes also unleash a devastating 100 foot high tsunami on California "larger than the Indonesia tsunami (2004)", a TV reporter keeps popping up to comment on the extent of the damage which is then illustrated by a few odd floating pieces of timber or a pink coat covered in seaweed. As devastating as that wave was a wooden lifeguard station on the beach survives intact, thankfully so as our cast (including Peta Wilson) are forced to ride the tsunami out inside the shack. The pretty, but annoying and always screaming, blonde in a bikini gets a life-threateningly small cut on her thigh and the blood attracts the sharks who then lay siege to the station, meanwhile one of Wilson's lovers is on route to rescue them.
When the action switches to a new building site the tension really ratchets up a gear as the sharks chase the survivors through flooded corridors (Cheap Blue Sea?

i watched this film last night hinking it would be good and seen as the girl from final destination 3 is in it i thought id give it a go i wished now id never bought this movie because it is utter garbage. its basically what you come to expect from these films preistrotric sharks escape from an underwater tomb and reach havoc by munching on hapless bikini clad bathers. now i liked shark films like sharktopus which altho was cheesy at best was at least decent this film however was complete rubbish.

the acting was so bad and the cgi was rubbish aswell the sharks did look weird tho like a cross between a great white and a rhino you even see a great white shark get eaten by one of them inthe first 5 mins of the film but basically story is a tusami hits the west coast after an underwater earthquake releases these dinosaur like sharks which have said to have died out millions of years ago yada yada yad etc so they go on a killing spree forcing the only survivors to take shelter in a beach shack which isnt very safe for long as one of them is killed later on so the story is pretty much the same and all been done also the blonde girl who is out of final destination 3 i was laughing and shouting so much at the tv because all she did was whine and scream over a little gash/cut in her leg which probably wouldnt of been life threatening at all so she whined and and whined on about how bad it was which i thought was pathetic and of course the blood seeping from her cut attracts the sharks big suprise.

so i found her really anoyying and the other actors wernt that good either pretty predictable looked at times like they were bored. but the one that annoyed me most wasthe annoying blonde girl who spent the whole film whining and screaming at every turn in the movie.

I hope I don't come over as a "know it all" cos I'm not, but all the critics (and by no means just for this film) who say what rubbish the CGI are, whilst they are correct, are they not perhaps missing the point? Who remembers Roger Corman and "Teenage Caveman" and "Attack of the Crab Monsters" etc., and how we all mocked the men in monster suits and ridiculous "monsters". He was constrained by Budget (lack of), and so must the presnt day film makers suffer the same fate. Therefore the CGI effects are cheaper and the equivalent of Corman's monsters. There now...This film is of course pretty awful, but quite a lot of it is fun in a daft, sometimes unintentional way. It is repetive with it's sharks and illogical in it's plot, But I still kind of went along with it. I also wanted to see what Peta Wilson looked like now (yes Amazon, she is top billed), and, let's be polite, she has filled out a bit (so have I) and really doesn't look happy here at all, and I can't blame her. I've never heard of anyone else, and yes, there is an "annoying little blonde". There also many many shots of gorgeous skimpy bikini clad girls who have nothing to do with the plot such as it is (others have described it better than I can be bothered to). It' 86' long, with excellent print and sound, and price. We watched it with wine which probably helped. Some will love it, some will completely dismiss it as utter rubbish. You have to make your own mind up, but I favour viewing it! There I've said it!

Ladies and gentlemen, we have with us one of the stars of this film. Please put your hands together for Goblin Shark No 4.
(Round of applause)
Mr Goblin, would you tell us something about your experiences whilst working on this film?
"Of course. During the early scenes in this film I was given the impression me and my brothers were going to be playing second fiddle to a load of the usual muscle-bound men and bikini babes who seem to be taking up most of the screen time. But once the movie starts getting into action we were out there doing the "Jaws" business. It's true the science in the movie would hack scientists right off. Real goblin sharks are not extinct and we, as CGI Great Whites with different heads, only bear a passing resemblance to them. But come on. These films aren't made for professors, and the later scenes after the tidal wave are a genuinely tense and exciting example of the 'stranded people in danger' theme".
It's certainly nice to see someone make the effort with a kind of shark other than the usual Great White. Have you any future film ambitions?
"Actually I'd like to go into banking, but I think they already have enough sharks".
Mr Goblin, thank you.
