Plot
The thing that’s convenient about a 2-headed shark is that it can eat two people at once... or the same person twice, not that this impacts the story. The beast looks bad ass! At some point, in horror film history, sharks started attacking boats and that’s how this movie starts. It gives a reason for the protagonists, then, to land on a deserted island where nothing can possibly go wrong.
So, you get a bunch of muscled dudes and gorgeous babes not wearing much. You even get topless bisexual action leading to a threesome. You get Carmen Electra looking good in a bikini, tanning; Charlie O’Connell ordering everybody around and Brooke Hogan, who may end up being the final girl. She has baggage... shark baggage, which means she’ll probably survive this film.
In terms of slapstick shark movies, 2-Headed Shark Attack is as good as it gets. You get boobs, blood, and a retarded computer-generated monster. The pacing is hectic. Interestingly, nobody is studying the beast. Nobody questions it. There are no cops around, no military and no scientists. Basically, there is no fun police, so please leave your brain at the door. You’re in for a ride.
