3-Headed Shark Attack (2015)
Review by Michael Mahoney

4 / 10
This follow-up to the disaster that was 2-Headed Shark Attack is a marginal improvement, but make no mistake, it's still pretty awful. The best I can say is that there are actually a few memorable characters here, and it didn't feel nearly as shallow as the first one.

Even the story is a bit better, what with some of the main characters actually being scientists as opposed to just college kids who want to party and have carnal relations. While the underwater base was likely impractical, I actually thought it was sort of cool in a Jaws 3 type of way. The movie goes down a more generic route once the facility gets destroyed by the shark, which was a shame, though not a surprise.

Before I talk about the quality of performances overall, I want to speak specifically about Danny Trejo for a bit. Possibly one of the most well-known and prolific Latino actors, I've seen a handful of his films. I enjoyed Machete, and a few other roles of his. But the fact that he seems to accept any role offered to him doesn't much endear me to the guy. In this film, he's basically used the same way Carmen Electra was in the first one - to have a big name to draw people in. As it is, I liked Trejo's character here, for the little he appeared, but his arc is exactly what you'd expect, and ultimately, he was pretty pointless as far as the film goes.

For other performances, you have a few that legitimately did okay, such as Karrueche Tran, Jaason Simmons, and Rob Van Dam. Jena Sims was rather attractive, and I somewhat liked her character, but she didn't really amount to much, which actually caught me a bit by surprise. Generally, though, this movie, much like the first, seems more concerned about showing girls with impressive breasts in bikinis as opposed to crafting an even halfway decent story. While I won't deny that some of the girls in question are beautiful (such as Brianna Ferris), it doesn't add anything to the story being told.

In reality, while the movie was pretty terrible, it did improve a bit upon the first one (but honestly, given that I rated the first one extraordinarily lowly, that really isn't saying much), and it seemed to want to be a better movie. It didn't reach anywhere near average, but 3-Headed Shark Attack is a movie I could almost see myself re-watching at some point, which is definitely something I can't say about the first one.
