Editorial Reviews

Kate (Halle Berry) is a shark expert whose business has been failing since a shark attack killed a fellow diver under her command. Once dubbed "the shark whisperer," Kate is haunted by the memory of the attack and unable to get back into the water. With bills piling up and the bank about to foreclose on Kate's boat, Kate's old flame Jeff (Olivier Martinez) presents her with a lucrative opportunity: lead a t hrill-seeking millionaire businessman on a dangerous shark dive…outside the cage. Battling her self-doubts and fear, Kate accepts the proposal -- and sets a course for the world's deadliest feeding ground: Shark Alley.

2.0 out of 5 stars YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME March 17, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The film takes place in scenic South Africa. We get the National Geographic tour. The film starts out great showing us Halle Berry's cleavage, a guy filming her cleavage, and then they throw a shark into the film...and no more cleavage. Halle's hobby is to pet Great Whites in open water out of a cage. She is married to Jeff who films the action. So when sharks suddenly behave badly, Halle quits diving with them.

After a year, Jeff is trying to get back with Halle. The have fights about the relationship. The film contains Halle doing a first person philosophical narration and the music is very tame, not what one expects for an action/thriller. Halle who has spent 10 years in the water doesn't like the smell of fish and screams when someone tries to push her in. Clearly this is an action flick written for women, or by a woman (Amy Sorlie). In one scene Jeff apologizes for whatever it was that made Halle angry. Halle is angry that he doesn't know why she is angry and won't tell him...because he should know! She finally says, "You have no idea what's wrong with me!"

As Halle's business starts to fail, a wealthy Brit (Ralph Brown) trying to connect with his son (Mark Elderkin) wants to swim with Great Whites without a cage. Halle is reluctant but agrees.

They set out in the water to go dancing with sharks. And if everything went well, there wouldn't be a movie. Dad fights with son, Jeff fights with dad, Halle fights with Jeff, and Halle fights with dad. At this point I was hoping a two headed mega shark would swallow the whole boat. The climatic scene I can't detail because I have no idea what is happening. Everyone is in the same dark suits and it is dark. The full view film of the sharks appear to be stock footage. (Ed Wood would be so proud.

"My father once told me to be careful of the things you love most in the world because if your not careful that very thing can also destroy you." Nine years after being attacked and nearly killed by a shark professional diver Kate (Berry) is ready to give tours again, just not to swim outside of a cage. After a financial crises forces her to help a man live his dream of swimming with the sharks she is forced to confront her fears again. This is a movie that hardcore fans of shark movies will enjoy. For me it was very slow and pretty boring. I think the problems with this one are pretty much even across the board. I felt no connection with any of the characters, the movie was longer then it needed to be and this is the type of movie you forget as you are watching. You may see it different but to me this is boring and forgettable. Overall, unless this is your favorite type of movie you may feel the same as I did. I give it a C.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wait for it go on sale.... for it surely will. April 21, 2012
By indigo
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I give this movie one star for the sharks, as previous reviewers mentioned the shark footage is pretty amazing, and one star split between wonderful shots of S Africa and equally, (for this viewer) pleasant shots of Mr Martinez. The story line itself was almost unpalatable. As someone else stated, mbee for the girls, I doubt even then. Without giving any spoilers there is little to say other than any action above the waves was plain tedious and even annoying. With that said, I am not sorry to have rented this, I really loved the underwater footage, but I really wish I had waited until it was the 99 cent special, as it is obviously destined to be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Halle Berry in a bikini. Enough said. April 30, 2012
Halle Berry is the best in the business when it comes to swimming with sharks. Following a shark attack on a friend, Berry retreats to giving boat tours until a rich father offers her a price for he and his son to swim with the very thing she is trying to avoid. The film falls in neither the action, horror, or thriller genres as marketed by the studio and DVD rental services. It's a flat out drama about a woman re-discovering who she is and living up to reality. Awesome underwater shots, Halle Berry in a bikini, and live shark footage help give this DTV title a 3/5.

1.0 out of 5 stars I rooted for the Sharks!! July 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A beautiful, academy award winning actress. A sexy French film star made famous in The Horseman on the Roof. Beautiful South African scenery - what could go wrong?! Um - just about everything!
Let's start with Halle and Olivier. This movie is supposedly where the now married couple met and fell in love - hard to believe as there is zero chemistry between them! Olivier looks like he needs to give up smoking immediately - and Halle has a 5 oclock shadow in most of the scenes? Maybe after paying the actor's salaries there wasn't any money left over for a make up artist but seriously- two of the best looking people on the planet and either they look like crap or they are wearing goofy deep sea diving masks with enormous flippers!
Next the story - Halle is supposed to be some famous Shark Whisperer who free dives and then cozies up to great whites by reading their body language and not making any bubbles - ridiculous! All the scary moments are telegraphed so far in advance I was almost screaming "just attack them already" to the menacing sharks! I think the audience is supposed to feel some sort of remorse or sadness when the bad things go down but really it is just a relief as it meant the movie was nearing the end!
You would be better of going to the local aquarium to view live sharks swim around their tanks for a couple of hours than spending any time on this mistake of a film - don't waste your time on this one!
