1.5/5 - It's no 'The Reef', that's for sure. The relationships between all of the girls is so odd and although they try to explain it, it doesn't do a very good job of making the tone and interactions feel any more realistic or legitimately understandable. I also don't understand why the shark becomes *obsessed* with them. This isn't Jaws, and sharks don't naturally do that kinda thing to humans but it's a reach to try and convince me this shark was so dumb it kept thinking they were seals. There was something personal about it and like no duh, it's obvious that it's meant to be a stand-in for the trauma that they're all experiencing but it just doesn't work for me and felt way too forced.
Decent shark flick, acting was a bit rough at parts but some tense scenes made up for it.
This was good
This is not a good movie, and it's hard to believe that it was directed by the same guy that directed the far superior film, The Reef. I was sorely disappointed.
Wow. A boring shark attack movie. Worst CGI ever. Awful acting and saccharine script.
