Editorial Reviews

Researchers on the undersea laboratory Aquatica have genetically altered the brains of captive sharks to develop a potential cure for Alzheimer's disease. There is one unexpected side effect. The sharks are getting smarter.You can swim but you can't hide when a tropical storm floods Aquatica, plunging Samuel L. Jackson, Saffron Burrows, Thomas Jane, LL Cool J and the rest of the crew into a harrowing battle of wits against sleek killing - and thinking! - machines. Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Die Hard 2) directs, squeezing nerve-jangling suspense and thrills from a film that's a monster movie, a chase movie, a movie that snaps hold and won't let go. Dive in!

4.0 out of 5 stars Deep, but not so wide July 21, 2003
Format:DVD
"Deep Blue Sea" is one of those monster flicks that makes an attempt at being an intelligent man's horror film. The genetically-altered, Alzheimer cure-all mako shark idea was a good one, and a little more unique than most creature films, but in essence this is a man-screws-with-nature-nature-screws-back sort of tale. There are a couple of suspenseful moments, and the makos look great throughout the majority of the film. Other reviewers accuse the acting as being standard and weightless, but remember that this is a creature feature and the first rule of this genre is that the creature is the star. I found nothing terribly wrong about the acting, and much like "Anaconda," this film has a token rapper(LL Cool J) who does a good job. The rest of the cast is fairly standard, but none of their performances are that bad. Samuel L. Jackson gives "Deep Blue Sea" a solid actor, and he seemed to enjoy his time on screen in this film. Thomas Jane is another standout who plays the heroic lead, although little is left for our hero to save. Saffron Burrows does an excellent job as the good-meaning, yet slightly mad scientist who you really want to see get bit by a mako.
Overall, this is an above-average flick. It isn't as cheesy as "Lake Placid," and it doesn't make the sharks quite as smart as the raptors of "Jurassic Park" fame, but it takes parts of both of these films and combines them with a little suspense and terror a la "Jaws" and serves up a fish dinner that just about anyone can enjoy.
Also, notice the nod given to "Jaws" during Jackson's initial landing at Aquatica.(Hint: Check that license plate)

5.0 out of 5 stars These sharks could blow Jaws outta the water November 1, 1999
By Siren
Format:VHS Tape
At first, I was looking more forward to see Lake Placid, butthis turned out to be much better. The sharks looked great. Surprises everywhere! Just when you think you know what is gonna happen and who is going to make it and who won't, they turn the tables. Jaws was nothing but an overgrown great white who was a maneater. These sharks are genetically altered by humans. It gives a better depth of their intelligence. And unlike Jurrasic Park, it goes even deeper into what can go wrong when you screw around with nature.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mindless Fun January 4, 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I came to this movie with pretty low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Yes, the plot has major holes, some of the effects are chintzy, and the thing is just too damn long. Still, the action scenes are well choreographed (especially the terrifying helicopter crash) and any movie about killer sharks is going to press a button or two. This one pressed several. Yes, Samuel L. Jackson is terrible, just as he was in The Phantom Menace (it is rare to see an actor who is so equally capable of brilliance and bathos), and the characters played by Saffron Burrows and Thomas Jane, both gifted peformers, are as one-dimensional as LL Cool J's is stereotypical. Of the rest of the large ensemble cast, which includes indie fixtures Michael Rappaport, Jaccqlyn McKenzie and Aida Tuturro, few are allowed to do more than wait their turn to be fish bait. Of course, character development is not the main concern here, action is and, on that count, Deep Blue Sea works quite well. Just don't think too hard about it and you will find an enjoyable way to kill a couple hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars deep blue sea December 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This DVD was far better than I had hoped for. The special effects were awesome! After watching this DVD I'm not so sure I want to go in the ocean again.If what you like is to watch a shark tear a person apart, then this one is for you! This has become our all time favorite .The more you watch it the better it gets. This movie will NOT disapoint the the person that likes to sit on the edge of the seat. p.s keep your feet out of the water.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just another action movie May 16, 2000
Format:DVD
This is a bad action flick. The basic plot is they (scientists) try to cure Alzheimer's and other brain diseases. There is a serum in the shark's brain, but to make adequate amounts, they break some code of ethic (it is named in the movie, but it escapes my memory). Well, in the process of doing so, it makes the sharks smarter. It is a very run of the mill action movie, bringing little invention to the genre. It's a Jaws wannabe.
One redeeming factor, however, is it will surprise you on who will live and who will die. During one scene, a character is making a good speech, and then WHAM! Everything JAWS tried, it succeeded. I've heard the sequels are terrible, but I haven't seen them.. But if you hold this against JAWS, this fails terribly. There is no suspense or terror in this movie as in JAWS. It saddens me that Jackson, a fine actor in his own right, was in this movie. He is also another redeeming factor in this movie. The cast does an alright job, bringing the script up a little - but still, a pretty dismal effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes Jaws look like a relaxing fishing trip. September 28, 2003
By Sweek
Format:DVD
This film is increadible, mainly because it has no respect for it's cast. Anyone can die in this film. Someone who's the main character one minute is shark food the next. Although Renny Harlin took the 'special effects' option instead of building up real suspense, it works. There are some real shock moments in this film.
Basically it's Genetic Modification gone bazerk, super intelligent sharks, modified for the purpose of curing a disease, turn against their creators in a frenzy of snapping jaws and red-water scenes. I know, it's not the most in-depth plot review but that's it really, which doesn't matter because the great content makes up for the barely existant story.
The cast is great. Saffron Burrows shows that she is more than just cleavage as the meddling scientist who went too far, while Thomas Jane succeeds as the action hero (Even though he falls down about 50 times) and LL Cool J is surprisingly good as the comic relief/chef. Although he's playing the token 'cowardly character' Michael Rapaport gives a good performance, Stellan Skarsgard and Samuel L Jackson are both very talented actors who are good in any film and Jacqueline McKenzie gives more than just a creadible performance, watch the deleted scenes to see her at her best.
I would reccommend this film to anyone who likes a high tension thriller with plenty or guts'n'gore, but it belongs in anyone's DVD collection. It's in mine ;).
Sweek!

BB also has the occasional $7.99 sale which is a great save. I think it's a store exclusive though, so that's why it's so expensive here.
