Editorial Reviews

The Seventh installment in the Maneater Series, Shark Swarm is the highly anticipated miniseries now available for the first time on DVD. For decades, the Pacific waters have been a dumping ground for atomic-testing debris, bacterial pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, and nuclear waste. Some ocean species died off. Others adapted. When a group of Marine Biologists discover a beached Bull Shark, they find that it has sensory organs exhibiting violent tendencies-even after death. But the news continues to get worse. When tourists begin disappearing all over the fishing town of Full Moon Bay, a team of scientists learn that a more dangerous species, the Great White, is now loose, 40 strong, and cutting through the waters together with one horrifying purpose - to kill for pleasure. featuring Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill), Armand Asante (American Gangster), John Schneider (Millville), Shark Swarm, a jaw-snapping, bone-crushing ecological thriller miniseries about the day nature really goes wild.

Want to hear sharks that roar like lions?
THowerton
I got bored long before it ended... but, I have to admit, it was one of those terrible movies you watch until the end, and you don't really know why!
Raymond Pauly
Even if it is on TV, don't waste your time watching it, the movie is that bad.

Greedy land developing schmuck, Armand Assante is buying up the properties of a small coastal fishing town called Full Moon Bay so he can put up a bunch of condos. He's got everyone in his pocket, but fisherman John Schneider just won't sell, and his property is the key to the whole project! Assante decides to play hardball by bullying Schneider with his henchmen. But most importantly, he's dumping toxins in the ocean to kill off all the fish, and in theory, ruin Schneider's business.
Oh, it kills the fish alright, but it messes with the food chain and creates a hungry swarm......A FRIGGIN' SHARK SWARM!!!! Now there's a buttload of sharks chomping down on everything they can get their fins on, including each other. Schneider and his woman, Daryl Hannah have got to turn the tide on this ravenous swarm(Ya like that "turn the tide" ocean-type pun?), and at the same time save their little town from becoming tacky.
This movie is an epic. Sort of. It's awfully damn long, longer than a movie like this should be(damn near 2 hours and 40 minutes!). But from my understanding it was a miniseries so that accounts for the ridiculous length. It's really not all that impressive. It's just interesting enough to keep you watching to the end, but that's about it. There are a bunch of pointless subplots, and good actors are used in very cookie cutter type roles, Assante and F. Murray Abraham especially(Abraham was almost downright pointless!). There are seemingly endless scenes of various people getting attacked by the sharks, at least one scene for every four that go by. This is kinda funny coz nobody seems to notice such a massive amount of people are missing!

Obviously, this movie is not Jaws. To hold it to those standards is setting the viewer up for immediate disappointment. But if you take the movie for what it is--a two-hour-and-forty-minute shark drama/epic, then you just might enjoy it as much as I did.

Some of the characters are laughable, and some of them are even kind of likable. Some of the acting is terrible, and some of it is at least okay. And for CG sharks, these aren't the worst out there.

And the lengthiness of it, I for one never found it slow. I never got bored. I don't know; it's definitely not Jaws. Just know that going in and you'll be alright.

This movie had an interesting story. I watched it because I had family members that were extras in the movie (parts of the movie were filmed in Mendocino). I thought some parts were a little gross, but the story held our attention. I thought certain things were unbelievable but I thought Daryl Hannah and John Schneider did a good acting job.

As a lot of other reviewers have stated, you aren't expecting much when you decide to watch a movie like this...it's definitely no "Jaws".

***POSSIBLE MINOR SPOILERS***

The basic premise of "Shark Swarm" is yet another Hollywood warning about the dangers of trashing Mother Nature. Hamilton Lux (Assante) has been authorizing the dumping of toxic waste into the waters of Full Moon Bay for a long enough time to kill off the fishing industry and turn every shark in the area into an ultra-violent maneater. Daniel Wilder (Schneider), his wife (Hannah), and his brother set out to stop Lux from taking over their town in order to build his development of luxury condos. F. Murray Abraham plays Dr. Bill Girdler--the university professor who seems to spend a large chunk of the movie sitting at computers, tracking the shark swarms by satellite, and relaying their position to the movie's heroes.

O.K., the story is lame but it isn't any lamer than "Hammerhead Shark Attack", "It Lives", and similar fare. The acting is so-so. I have to admit I was rather surprised and saddened to see four actors--Hannah, Assante, Schneider, and Abraham--who used to be respectable actors choosing to be in this turkey. I guess money is money. The other actors are noticeably bad. The guy who plays Schneider's brother and his EPA girlfriend are terrible, as is the girl playing Schneider and Hannah's daughter. My husband and I both found the daughter particularly irritating, as her idea of acting was apparently to simper like an idiot in practically every scene.

Schneider's character was also hard to cheer on, as he came across as a hot-headed, arrogant jerk. I've always liked Armand Assante, but was saddened to see how much hair he has lost.

Let me start by saying that we cannot expect much from a shark movie. I mean after Jaws.... there's not much to really do with a shark story, except add a biological alteration mixed with lots of sharks. This kind of reminded me of that Spring Break Shark Attack movie, only much better (for one thing, fins weren't overlapping in the water.... the effects were pretty cool in this one). The cast in Shark Swarm was pretty good. Had John Schneider killed a shark with an arrow with dynamite on it, that might have "jumped the shark" for this movie. Overall I was impressed with this movie. It was horror without a lot of gore (believe it or not....). If you like shark attack movies. and don't mind an almost 3 hour flick, check this one out. Another recommendation would be 12 Days of Terror. Not Jaws-quality (since all shark movies will be compared to Jaws, but this one is actually the true-life event that inspired Jaws), but worth watching at least once.

I guess the only step left for shasrk movies at this point would be a land shark, flying shark, talking shark, revised megalodon story or sharks in space. Then again, I wouldn't mind seeing something done on bull sharks, which can survive for long periods of time in fresh waters. One was caught in Missouri several years ago in the Mississippi River. I think there was a movie done about sharks in a river a few years ago.... but it sucked. There is also the USS Indianapolis movie due out next year, I think.
