Absolutely horribly boring, only one person dies by shark. 0 out of 10
Boring storyline and the women are portrayed as overly emotional and not able to think rationally . H
I think The Reef: Stalked is a solid, if not aware what it is, movie. I love the theme of trauma and the relationships between the friends and sisters. If this film really did use real sharks in some scenes, then it earns extra points. Obviously, the CGI is apparent (and downright bad in one instance), but aside from that I felt a genuine terror. It was extremely lacking in gore, especially compared to other shark movies. The characters were fun and 3 dimensional. I do feel though the plot was a little contrived and maybe could've benefited from a change. It's worth a watch though more than anything.
It ain't no JAWS.
