Editorial Reviews

Dive into this carnivorous adventure when a massive man-eating bull shark takes over the quiet waters of the Mississippi. Nobody knows what or who is leaving behind mangled remains on the banks of a Louisiana river until it is revealed that there is one breed of shark that can live in fresh water a giant carnivore, stalking the living under the surface. Now, as workers search the river for a source of natural gas, and criminals are hunting a buried treasure, it is up to a small group of hunters to find and destroy the murderous beast, bent on killing anything that leaves the shore

4.0 out of 5 stars IT WAS OK FOR THIS TYPE OF FILM February 9, 2007

This film is honestly not as bad as every one makes it out to be, I mean just take it for what it is. And what is it exactly you might ask, well it is a rip off b movie, and for that it really isn't that bad. Sure it isn't a classic in any sense but it is still entertaining enough for a boring night with nothing to do.

Director Charles Robert Carner does what he can with this film, it turned out ok for a cheap rip off film. Writers J.D. Feigelson and Chris Mack are mainly the ones to blame here, even I can't deny that the script could have been better. Also the acting was ok at best from most, Lou Diamond Phillips was great as the lead in this film but I have seen him do much better [The Triangle]. Still The Lou shines in any and everything he does. Phillips steals the show and rightfully as the lead. Kristy Swanson did well in her part as Phillips ex wife. Coolio like Lou was only ok in his part of some side kick goon. But I must say that the actor who played Bret was well beyond every one else in this film. But other then him nobody else seemed to do any thing other then ok.

The story was an easy one to follow, a shark is loose in the fresh water of the Mississippi. It just so happens that in that same water is some people drilling for natural gas, and some guys looking for some money that was lost in the river 5 years ago. As it turns out both groups cross paths and find them selves battling each other as well as the shark. Actually when I spell all of this it seems like the story should have been much better, but I'll stick by what I wrote earlier and say that this film is ok for a rip off movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Harmless. March 6, 2004
What's wrong with a straight-up shark thriller? Deep Blue Sea showed us that character development and sparkling dialogue aren't necessary when you approach shark movies with craftsmanship and little pretention.
RED WATER is here to remind us how hideously wrong it can all go. Should we start with the acting? Let's. Lou Diamond Phillips is not a bad actor. I loved his over-the-top performance in THE BIG HIT, but he plays it straight here, bogging down in unspeakable dialogue and trying to make the melodrama appear genuine. I haven't seen Kristy Swanson since the Buffy Movie. Her appearance is significant because I thought she was dead.. :/
Coolio doesn't need much talent: he character ought to be natural to him. The bad guy is okay, typically scruffy and unshaven.
All of these actors certainly could have done better had they had better dialogue to spew. How many times have we seen the scene where the ex-husband and ex-wife begin to be reuinted in the face of danger? How about where the hero mournfully recounts his troubled past?
But let's talk about what REALLY matters. The animatronic shark looks great, but it is intercut with some shoddy CGI work, and it frequently changes size and shape. There are several attacks at the beginning, all of them predictable (a bad sign, DEEP BLUE SEA's best attacks were viscous and surprising) and bloody, but not done in a visceral fashion. There's no new camerawork or methods of making an old creature attack more hard-hitting. When people are killed, I felt very little.
Several opportunities to create genuine suspense (the flashing on the underwater lights to alert the divers of the sharks presence) are squandered so often that their mere possibilites must have been accidents.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bullshark! Wasted... July 6, 2004
By Mari
This movie got 2 stars only because they used a bullshark. If they'd used a commonly used shark they'd have gotten no stars from me!
I love shark movies...I was too young for Jaws, but I get excited to see movies that aren't about great whites. And as far as I know this was the first one about BULLSHARKS! They can live in lakes which makes them really scary. Yay!
Well, the focus of this movie wasn't really on the sharks/shark as it was on a flimsy plot about robbers and thieves hunting for treasure and a crewman trying to get along with his ex wife on a business-boating trip. No one was worried about sharks until the last minute and it was all put it on the backburner. The good thing about this was that it wasn't a thinly veiled soft-porn like SOME movies. That still doesn't make it a shark movie! PLEASE someone make a good movie about the bullshark!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better jaws rip offs made for TV April 8, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember when this aired back in 2003, as being someone who was obsessed with josh i couldn't wait to see this. A bull shark swims farther upstream then usual an starts eating people. A group of convicts are trying to find a lost treasure at the same spot people are trying to drill for oil, and you can guess the convicts hold people hostage and the shark munches on people. I actually couldn't believe the budget on this movie the shark looked real, unlike the Shark attack movies of using stock footage sharks to attack people. While it is no jaws, but it was a great movie!
