Being a huge fan of sharks and enjoying the first movie I was looking forward to this one. I didn’t expect an AMAZING movie but I was hoping for an enjoying one. I was not disappointed! Right from the beginning with the almost James Bond intro it was pretty much constant, no down time. It jumped right into things going wrong. The characters weren’t developed as well as they could be but you got a sense of who the main people were and who you needed to root for. I enjoyed that despite the cheese they did use some practical effects, it wasn’t completely CGI for the sharks. And the people that you wanted to die did. It was more of a remake than a sequel, similar storyline and no mention of the first one. It had an element of sci-fi with the medical aspect, like the first one did, but it wasn’t as prominent. It was definitely a creature feature but was better than SyFy Channel quality. 😉
Where I found it: Rented from Netflix DVD
How much I paid for it: 1hr 34mins
Points of interest:
- Filmed in Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa.
- Direct to DVD release.
- Rated R!
The Money Shot:
There were two!
First was one of the shark handlers just being revived from almost drowning leaning over the pool and saying “Fuck you” to the sharks and having his head bitten off. Total Samuel L Jackson moment.
Second was the billionaire going underwater and screaming at the main shark Bella and then bragging about being her master and she comes up under him and swallows him whole.
My Favorite Lines:
- “It’s completely safe.”
- “Sharks don’t do that!”
