    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

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

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    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

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

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

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    One of those stupid movies that are good to relax with. show more

    Barbara Shulgasser Chicago Tribune

    Even overlooking the fundamental inanity of the movie, one is left to contend with some offensive racial stereotyping. show more

    Unsalvageable B-movie junk. show more

    Ron Wells Film Threat

    If distinctly uneven CGI, minimal originality and overly convenient plot devices turn you off, this may not be your film. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    The characters are two-dimensional and the story is intensely formulaic. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    A preposterously silly bit of work, chock-full-o' nuts and rife with the kind of plot holes you could drive a submersible ROV through. show more

    How refreshing: a big-budget, F/X-happy action flick that actually appears to be intentionally stupid. 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.
