Mississippi River Sharks is a 2017 American motion horror movie through which sharks assault a fish rodeo and it’s as much as a gaggle of locals to cease them.

Sharks assault a fish rodeo on the Mississippi River, and it’s as much as a gaggle of locals, together with a visiting actor from a profitable franchise of shark motion pictures, to fend off the killer fish…

Pay attention, Syfy has been displaying shark movies for over 4 years straight now. We’ve had zombie sharks. We’ve had poisonous sharks. We had a ghost shark. We’ve had a planet of the sharks. The sharks have taken over the oceans. They’ve taken over the Jersey Shore. There’s even a film known as Sand Sharks, through which the sharks take over the seashore! And, let’s not overlook that Syfy and the Asylum have constructed a complete franchise round the concept sharks can survive in a twister. And I haven’t even talked about what occurs in Shark Exorcist.


My level is that there are quite a lot of shark motion pictures and, consequently, the sharks are having to department out and discover new aquatic territory. It was inevitable that the sharks would ultimately discover their solution to the Mississippi River.

As quickly as I noticed the title of this film, I believed to myself, “Please inform me that this film will open with a giant outdated riverboat getting attacked by sharks.” You’ll be able to think about how completely happy I used to be when, lower than 5 minutes into the movie, that’s precisely what occurred. Once you’re watching a film on Syfy and also you see a bunch of CGI sharks leaping onto the deck of a riverboat and snapping off folks’s heads, you realize you’re in good fingers. You already know you’re going to be correctly entertained for the subsequent hour and a half.

Actually, on the subject of shark motion pictures, all you really want are the sharks and a few victims who, for no matter motive, refuse to remain out of the water. Nevertheless, Mississippi River Sharks presents a bit greater than that. After the sharks get completed with that riverboat, they transfer on down the Mississippi and assault a small city’s annual “fish rodeo.”

For sure, a fish rodeo all the time tends to draw essentially the most eccentric amongst us and this one isn’t any completely different. For example, there’s Possum (Kevin J. McGrath), who isn’t going to let a bit factor like a shark assault stand in the best way of his quest to win a trophy. There’s Huge Invoice (Marco St. John), who owns the native automobile dealership and who doesn’t see why the presence of some sharks ought to stand in the best way of creating a bit cash. There’s Wyatt (Dean West), who has a means with a quip and rapidly emerged as a favorite of the viewing viewers. After which there’s Tara (performed by Cassie Steele, star of each Degrassi and Zombie Shark) who rapidly reveals that she is aware of simply take care of ill-tempered sharks.


Lastly, there’s Jason London, taking part in the position of …. Jason London! That’s proper, Jason London performs himself in Mississippi River Sharks. Within the movie’s universe, Jason is well-known for starring in a number of editions of the Shark Chunk franchise. (“We don’t discuss Shark Chunk 3!” Jason snaps.) When Jason accepted the invitation to be the fish rodeo’s particular movie star visitor, he by no means realised that he must face real-life sharks! Nevertheless, when these sharks do arrive, this film hero proves himself to be … properly, not a lot of a hero. I’ll simply say that London is hilarious and it’s quite a lot of enjoyable to look at him pretending to be a pretentious and stuck-up film star. He delivers his traces with simply the correct amount of weary annoyance.

Different opinions:

Mississippi River Sharks has a tiny bit going for it and that begins with Jason London who’s taking part in (I hope) a puffed-up model of himself right here. He appeared like he was having some enjoyable and the refined dropping of different dangerous shark motion pictures he has executed (and sure, a few of these are coming right here) was fairly humorous.” The Interior Circle

“The dialogue presents a enjoyable combine, from London’s dialled up efficiency to some tacky one-liners to one of many worst southern accents round. Not quite a lot of quotable or overly wild traces, however some enjoyable stuff is right here and that earns some factors. By way of craziness, this one by no means goes for broke and appears content material to be goofy, relatively than outrageous.” Marc Fusion

“The water is muddy, so the sharks are blurry. The script is punctuated by sluggish comedic moments which might be all anticlimactic. Each different scene slows the film down.” Tales of Terror

The movie debuted on the Syfy channel on July 31, 2017, as a part of their Sharknado Week.
