Terrible story, dialogue and CGI. The film has a predictable outcome. But I did like the cinematic wide shots and the overhead birdseye view shots with the sea plane that were done for the first act. Even in SDR, the seascapes were impressive. I can only imagine how much nicer it would have looked in HDR. The rest of the camera work, not so much. I didn't like the rapid closeup edits for the rest of the film.
When u come to watch a typical shark movie , you definetly do not expect to see an oscar withy movie however this movies dove below the already set average standard of a typical shark movie. Horrible CGI, disatrous actors, weak dialouge, expected story and the list goes on. As a shark lover, i immediately downloaded the movie but left utterly disappointed at the end.
Thought it was a great Shark Movie . Special effects were decent. Everyone stop your complaining. Geezzzz. Great camera work. Definitely worth a watch !
Many have tried to replicate the success of Steven Spielberg's Jaws and have not yet succeeded. This film too often puts the viewer on a buffer, as with a bad Internet, and does not help at all to understand what is happening. The creators had an ocean of opportunities and they missed them. Two things worry me: what the sharks have done, that they are forced to shoot in this, and how you and I will survive this film.
The film is meh when it comes to these types of films. Characters are lame and stereotypical but is that a bad thing with these films? No, I don't think so but maybe a little more time could be made to build them up a bit.The shark looks bad, very bad. It's amazing that the shark in Jaws looks better and that was in the 70's! One of the biggest issues I have with films today is the use of bad cgi and using camcorders for movies. This one has really bad cgi of the shark.There are better shark films that have come out since Jaws and this is not it. If you have low expectations, as I did, you will probably still be disappointed.
