About 'Shark Side of the Moon'

“Shark Side of the Moon” is a film that falls into the cat­egory of B‑movies and provides enter­tain­ment with its absurd ideas. The film is about a group of astro­nauts who are on a secret space mis­sion to the moon. But instead of encoun­tering an unknown lunar sur­face, they sud­denly find them­selves con­fronted with an unex­pected threat – hungry sharks in space.

One of the film’s madcap ideas is the notion that sharks have the ability to sur­vive in space. The film­makers delib­er­ately dis­tance them­selves from any sci­entific logic and go for pure enter­tain­ment value. The sharks are equipped with rocket engines and can man­oeuvre in the vacuum of space, which enables them to attack the astro­nauts. This absurd premise provides a mix of sus­pense and unin­ten­tional comedy.

Another crazy con­ceit of the film is the fact that the sharks are endowed with extraordinary abil­ities. Not only can they breathe, but they can also make sounds in space and com­mu­nicate. This idea may seem absurd to some viewers, but in “Shark Side of the Moon” it is accepted as a normal premise to move the plot for­ward.

Another ele­ment of the film that could be described as “insane” is the use of excessive viol­ence and blood­shed. The astro­nauts have to defend them­selves against the attacking sharks with impro­vised weapons, which leads to absurdly cho­reo­graphed fight scenes. How­ever, this depic­tion of viol­ence serves more as a humorous exag­ger­a­tion than a real­istic por­trayal.

Des­pite its abstruse ideas and uncon­ven­tional plot, “Shark Side of the Moon” man­ages to cap­tivate and amuse its audi­ence. The film lives from its ironic approach and its aware­ness of its own absurdity. It is a work that delib­er­ately eschews realism in favour of fantasy and enter­tain­ment. Those looking for an uncon­ven­tional and humorous film exper­i­ence might find it in “Shark Side of the Moon”.
