| Not worth the watch, even if you expect to laugh at it for being bad
Being neither a purposely ridiculous joke film, nor a "so bad that it's good" B-movie, this movie just hovers in a dull middle territory that makes it not worth the watch.

Typical creature feature with all the dated and contrived plot points of random attacks which are first met with disbelief, followed by curiosity, and the eventual plan to go out and get/kill it. Not an ounce of creativity or originality (not that I was expecting it, but just another point in how dull it is) save for the shark having five heads. Although it doesn't match the film poster and does not look like a "demented starfish". It actually starts out with a believable enough four heads, but the fifth head that comes later requires too much suspension of any logic.

There's nothing too alarmingly or comedically awful about the production quality or the CGI (I mean, you can't expect Hollywood quality in the first place). Coupled with the contrived and sub-par writing, this leaves nothing to be entertained by, whether you planned to take the movie seriously or get your schadenfreude kicks out of mocking it.
