"Sharks don't walk on dry land".,
This review is from: Hammerhead [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A low budget shark thriller combining several of the usual elements you would expect from a film of this genre. A deranged scientist Dr. Preston King (Jeffrey Combs) who is believed to be using shark stem-cells from a hammerhead shark to try and find a cure for cancer has a more sinister aim involving the future of mankind. He has turned his son who was dying of cancer into a human-shark hybrid that he is trying to mate, using a collection of topless Romanian extras in test tubes, to evolve mankind into a disease free marine species.
Throw into this mix a team of scientists sent to investigate Dr King that includes the woman who was going to marry his son (Hunter Tylo) and her bulky looking love interest and various assorted extras who you know are soon going to become shark fodder. Not forgetting several killer plants, one of which attempts an Evil Dead style attack on one of the group, plenty of set piece action scenes and lots of explosions.
It's not a bad movie, but sadly there are very few original elements. The creature looks pretty good underwater but on land it just looks silly, thankfully there are no scenes with the mutated sharkman trying to mate as that would have pushed it way over the Z-movie barrier. As it stands it's a reasonable enough B-movie that can be enjoyed with a few beers, and there's nothing wrong with that.
