Bad CGI Sharks (2019) (DVD REVIEW)
Directed By: MaJaMa
Starring: Matthew Ellsworth, Jason Ellsworth, Matteo Molinari

Two estranged brothers are brought back together when a script they’re writing comes to life and sends a poorly rendered digital shark to hunt them down in this meta take on the sharksploitation genre.

Bad CGI Sharks walks a line between very smart and too silly for its own good. Notice I said it walks the line. By that I’m going to go ahead and say that it walked right to the line but it never crosses and as a result I found it to be silly often but fun none the less. Bad CGI Sharks has their sharks jumping off the pages of a bad movie idea from two brothers who don’t always get along that well. Ones more straight laced and the other is just goofy. Regardless, these two must work together to stop this badly rendered threat before it kills them or even worse, anyone that they still do care about. It’s weird but it’s never dull and I’m very happy of that. Not that you probably had super high expectations heading into something with title but it still manages to exceed those or at least it did mine.

This is a very meta movie. And as a result of that we have a narrator of sorts who talks not only to use but also talks to the two brothers during the film to give them the “shark movie rules” and to have a laugh or two with us. That might be a little much at times and I do think it might be a bit too much in spots but it doesn’t hurt things enough to really hurt the movie. This one is silly and there’s no other way to describe it than that. I don’t mind, however, and I think it’s a solid indie flick with a good idea that is used about as well as it could be. It probably won’t be for everyone, but if you like indie stuff you’ll be able to tolerate it.
