Shark Night 3D is just so...dumb. The hillbillies are as stereotyped as they come (one is even named "Red") and the college kids are a bland mix of interchangeable actors. The director attempts to crow bar in some "romance" between the characters but you won't care because soon most of them will be chum anyway. The PG13 rating guarantees no boobs or gore so the entire fare ends up being a big tease. Even with padding the entire film is only 1:17 minutes long.
My little cuz is the person I most often watch all the animated films with, makes sense since she is a kid. But at four or five [wish I could remember] she started getting interested in sharks, shark movies in particular. It was weird because what little kid is into seeing sharks eat people alive, but she liked them. So as the years have gone by I have watched just as many crazy shark films as I have animated ones. So when this one went to theaters and was also in 3-D I knew she would want to go. So my brother and I grabbed her from school that Friday and took her to see it. Naturally she loved it.
Seven friends from college are getting together for a getaway at one of the friends family vacation house. That is plan as they know it, just a good time at a nice house and water, what more could a young person need. Well things go horribly wrong when one of them is attacked by something I the water. Now they have to find a way to get him to the hospital in which the only way is to get him a flight there, but they are stuck. Now with time running out and crazy locals running about what will they do, and oh yeah there are sharks.
Now I will say that this is far from a perfect movie but she absolutely loved it. I will admit that I enjoyed it as well. I have always been a fan of the killer shark flicks and being able to see another on the big screen was excellent. Add in that this was in 3-D and all three of us had a great time watching this. I really liked the little rap video that the cast did after the credits were over. The cast was good and made for nice young bodies for the sharks. Over all it was a good, pointless, fun flick. The DVD comes with two bonus features but I wish it would have had a commentary. Any way this was a fun flick and gets five stars from me for the good time we had with our little cuz.
The movie had potential. But the silly reasoning behind why the sharks were there combined with the bad CGI just made this movie bad. The first 30-45 minutes weren't all that bad and it was semi entertaining. I just wish we could have been invested in these characters, gotten to actually know them and like them. Its just a shame that it ended up being as bad as it was.
If you can get passed the awful CGI you might like this movie.
The movie opens up similar to "Jaws" where the girl dies (oops sorry about the early spoiler). There were some differences. The music wasn't as intense, it was broad daylight, it was a shallow water attack, it was in fresh water,and we don't see a dorsal fin until later in the film. A group of college students, including a top athlete prospect (Sinqua Walls) who wants to be monogamous head up to the Sara's (Sara Paxton) lake/gulf house for the weekend. We know they are going to encounter 3D sharks, but in addition they meet with some uncouth sexist men who should be belong in a slasher film. Nick (Dustin Milligan) has interest in Sara, but hasn't made his move.
The dialouge was fairy decent. It wasn't predictable and at times had the classic "indy" freshness to it along with some modern pop music. After the first shark attack (you knew it was coming) we discover they have no cell phone reception...then there is the mishap with their boat. What to do for a shark attack? Stay out of the water. Humans have the advantage on land, believe it or not. But that doesn't make for a good shark horror movie so we add the twist. This is not just any shark. This is a movie shark. It can swim miles in a matter of moments. It appears to go out of its way to hunt humans, even leaping out of the water to get them.
The shark special effects didn't seem that great, perhaps viewing in 3D would make them better. The movie had a few slow scenes needed to establish relationships and character. We find out Sara is a survivor out of a different horror movie. The acting was on par for B movies. Dialogue slightly better. Soundtrack slightly better.
Rear nudity, sexual situations, language.

Friday the 13th with sharks.

Jaws started it all. Shark movies are in vogue again. There are more shark movies than there are sharks in the oceans or so it seems. This one is a no brainer. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Gary Gilfoy
