    One of the few big-fish horror films that still has the power to surprise. show more

    After slogging through the predictability of countless would-be action thrillers, I admired the sheer professionalism of this one, which doesn't transcend its genre, but at least honors it. show more

    It proves capable of doing something that many more artistically ambitious films fail at: entertaining an audience for nearly two hours. show more

    Good movie! The FX are astounding. The point of the movie is pretty much about who dies and was the only down of the movie along with the story. I did like the movie and was a good horror. By it's time, it was time for a new shark film anyway.
