Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
This movie is magnificent!
Save your money for something good and enjoyable
Although it has its amusing moments, in eneral the plot does not convince.
The acting in this film is nothing short of breathtaking. A marvelous combination of veteran actors and Ground shattering CGI puts this blockbuster at the top of the charts.

I will just start off with saying that if you enjoyed the first "Sharktopus" movie, then you will also enjoy this one. Or if you enjoy these cheesy monstrous predator movies, then chances are you will find some entertainment in "Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda".The storyline is essentially the same as it always is in these particular type of movies; a scientist of sorts have created a monstrous species of hybrid by mixing two species of predators. And as luck will have it, what they thought they could control runs amok and starts killing people.The first "Sharktopus" movie was campy and cheesy, and "Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda" is right up alongside with it. And this is the type of movie that you just sit back, laugh at and enjoy for what it is; senseless storyline and b-movie entertainment.And apparently there is another "Sharktopus" movie on the way.Anyway, I wonder who sits at the drawing boards and comes up with these ideas. I mean a half shark and half octopus, at least that makes sense in some bizarre way. But a half pterodactyl and half barracuda. Why? It is just so stupid.As with the first movie, you know exactly what you get here. A silly storyline with questionable CGI effects. And to top it off, the creatures make these really awful screeching noises.The acting in the movie was as to be expected for a movie of this type."Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda" scores a 3 out of 10 stars, just as I rated the first "Sharktopus" movie.
This film is another terrible creature feature from the ScFy Network. No one should be surprised by its low quality. Roger Corman is a master of lousy science fiction and this is no exception. A half-Shark, half-Octopus does battle with a half-Pterdactyl, half-Barracuda. It has all the expected elements, half-hearted acting by the stars, hammy extras, and lousy special effects. Of course, the creatures snack on the extras and destroy a few boats before the inevitable battle between them takes place. Coreman has described the schedule as "grueling." That also accurately describes sitting through this whole movie. What took so long? It's no better than the no-budget quickies that this resembles.
Well I doubt I'll watch this one again but it wasn't as bad as I expected for a SyFy made movie. The opening scene with the biologist taking samples and pulling up an egg sac was so wrong when she said it could be from a Great White. They pup live young, octopi do the egg sac thing. Robert Carradine is very good in his character, a little insouciant, pragmatic, rich, and just good. Conan O'Brien looks very old in his, thank goodness, brief appearance. So anyway after the bird-fish goes bananas and Carradine bribes the owner to release the sharktopus to counter act it, Ha Ha, things go as you would expect. Blood, dead people, violence, more dead people, the creatures hunting each other when they aren't eating people, very predictable. I thought the sharktopus was suppose to only go hunting the flying fish thing when it was implanted but it slaughters as many people as the fishy thing. This is all started by an apparent Russian agent working as a slimy mercenary, who has high jacked the birdyfish's control signals. The interaction between the biologist who worked with sharky and her lifeguard boyfriend is kinda funny, at least at times. They find the mercenary, he escapes through some badly written scene, they track him, wound him, and the birdy thing rips his arm off, he dies, a fitting end. Carradine's end epitomizes poetic justice. The end when it finally comes is predictable and trite. The two creatures plunge to the depths with a bomb in the birdy, it blows up, both appear to die, but then just before it is over guess what shows up?? (hey gotta leave room for another darn sequel).
