Schlock Lock

Ah, back to the basics. A shark, a lake, it writes itself!

In one movie, a bad guy is running away from the police, and dumps a shark into a lake. Five years later, it and two young are swimming around attacking people, in bad CGI effects. (There’s one absolutely terrible moment where it looks like two divers are superimposed onto a lake scene. There’s no reason for it not to be real, but it looks incredibly fake.) Eventually, the bad guy has to side with the police to take the shark out.

In another movie, a bad guy is taken away by the police, leaving his daughter who is then adopted by one of the police officers. The bad guy gets out, and the new mother wants them to have nothing to do with each other, but of course the daughter is interested, and gets back with the bad guy and gets into trouble, and the two of them have to pair up to save her.

If any of these stories happen to overlap in the same movie, it’s pure coincidence. At least these stories have Dolph Lungren in them, improperly cast as he is for some random reason. And I’ve already mentioned the bad CGI.

Another movie to easily skip.
