When Nick swims out into the lake to retrieve his arm, he is stalked and pursued by the shark.
K. Sommerfield
Not as great as I thought it was going to be it could have been a little better it was a fair movie not as good as some of the other Shark movies I have seen.
Rhonda Taylor
I did not expect lots of gore or something like that, I just wanted some good old "so bad it's godd" kind of movie.

Country gal Sara, wants to show her city classmates what small town life has to offer. Rounding up 6 of her bestest friends she takes them to her family's sprawling remote lake house for a weekend of debauchery. Cell phones don't work, of course. The gang have a great old time drinking, boating, and having sex (I made up the last part, there is NO sex or boobs in this movie) but things take a sudden turn for the worse when football hunk, Malik, gets his arm torn off by an enormous shark while waterskiing (!). A shark, in a lake, you ask? Yes, a shark in a lake. We are informed that it is a salt water lake, silly goose. As Malik clings to life the classmates try to figure out a way to get him to safety and the only solution appears to be by boat. Adding to their troubles are Sara's former, shady, hillbilly friends who seem to delight in the gang's predicament. We eventually learn that the hillbillies have stocked the lake with many different breeds of shark in order to film people being eaten for a "Faces of Death" like movie they are preparing for a web show (I'd watch it).

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.

The sharks (except for maybe 1-3 shots) were all CGI and all looked like CRAP. Perhaps in theater 3D it looked good, but not in 2D at home.

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.

"Shark Night" is the tale of vacationers whose fun weekend at a lake house turns into a nightmare when they become victims of a series of shark attacks. When Sara (Sara Paxton) and her pals arrive at her parents' Louisiana lake house, the party is in full gear. Everyone is having a wild time until Malik (Sinqua Walls) loses his arm in what initially appears to be a tragic water skiing accident.

Concerned with getting him to the nearest hospital as quickly as possible, it isn't until they're far from shore that they realize the lake is teeming with hungry sharks and a small speedboat isn't about to stop them from getting their next meal. In addition to the sharks, Director David R. Ellis ("Snakes on a Plane") has thrown in some backwoods "Deliverance"-style rednecks and inept law enforcement.

The film has its share of "Jaws"-inspired scares, but lacks the polish and genuine fright factor of the Spielberg classic. The plot device is improabable at best and serves only to offer up a number of bloody shark attacks every few minutes to keep us from dozing off. The Blu-ray edition contains several featurettes and a Digital Copy.

Okay first off if you are not a cheesy horror buff you will probably not like this movie. The main reason i liked this movie was because of the great 3D effects it had in it.Seeing it was shot in 3D seemed like a win all around and i was very excited for this to come out on 3D blu-ray. The problem is there is no news of this being released right now on 3D only 2D. I can not begin to tell you all the great effects you are being robbed of by not offering a 3D version of this film. The movie itself was very plain and generic and is like a kiddie up version of piranhas in 3D. (except shark night had even better 3D effects.)

I really don't get why you would shoot a movie in 3D and then not even sell it as a 3D movie. I still feel bad for all those who haven't been able to see avatar or legends in 3d. these flicks where ment to be shot this way and so did shark night......IN 3D!!!! I know 3D isn't for every one but some movies really have benefited from the technology and this movie is a good example.

Shark Night 3D was not what i was expecting at all. I thought it was going to be like Piranha 3D but that was not the case.Shark Night 3D took a different route and it worked, very suspenseful. I really enjoyed the movie. The 3D was AMAZING!! the sharks looked so real it was freaky. The hammerhead in particular looked so real that combined with the 3D element i felt as though i was face to face with the shark and it gave me some chills. I'am hoping for a sequel so in the meantime i will wait for its blu-ray release. I recommend for you all to see it :)

I'm a fan of the b-movie genre, but this flat out sucked. You might as well skip this, and go straight for Sharktopus.

Really this film is goddamn awfull, cartoonish sharks, horrible script and acting and the PG-13 rating are the film's main problems, and the only good thing this film had was the 3D, and there's only a 2D version of it. What a shame.
