While this isn't the first movie that floods the coastal cities with a tsunami, and than lets loose nature's greatest killing machines on hapless survivors, the shark(s) in BAIT provide a great combination of thrills and anxiety with their presence.
I personally found the story to be entertaining, and the characters to be believable. The idea of being trapped in a flooded shopping mall with a great white shark was entertaining enough, but the shark itself was truly impressive. It provided some genuine scares, and the scenes leading up to an attack were tense and frightening in equal measure. There was no shortage on gore either - the blood red water being churned as the shark would rend its victims was well done. The close ups - particularly when he would breach were well done, and if I am not mistaken, for at least one of the sharks, I certainly felt a slight homage towards the greatest of all shark films - JAWS (well - JAWS II at any rate)!!!
This movie moves at a good pace, and leaps right in with both feet (forgive the pun), and will not disappoint. If you like shark movies, than this one is for you. Be sure to watch the credits too, as a great rendition of the Mac the Knife is played, and we are rewarded with one last scare.
The movie is an extremely lean and taut suspense thriller. This is a real sleeper!
Now that I've spouted off, I shall focus on BAIT 3D. Actually, BAIT isn't all that bad. First of all, this isn't another of those scantily clad teeny-boppers vs. shark movies that have inundated our screens for years. Setting the action in a post-tsunami flooded supermarket gives the film a certain freshness. The 3D and CGI effects aren't state-of-the-art but adequately support the movie's atmosphere. The stock of cliché characters, including the precious pom Bully, are still more interesting than a bevy of brainless beauties or steroid-laden hunks. I must say that Julian McMahon's presence in a rather small role is puzzling and TWILIGHT's Xavier Samuels continues to support the fact that those guys just can't act!
The closing credits include a delightfully demented version of MACK THE KNIFE that is quite fun!
Overall, even if BAIT won't make us forget JAWS, it does manage to entertain...and that's meant as a compliment.
The plot of this movie is pretty good, it has a lot of twist and turns you won't see coming in the middle as well the end. While this movie Bait is a shark movie, it's noting quite like Jaws. The chars in this film are put together well. I am tired of seeing movies that have great actors but no plot, such as the new movie "The Expendables 3", it had a perfect cast but the plot was just stupid. Another good part of this movie is how the sharks get to where they are, it is a very explosive plot creation. Hope you enjoy it, i did.
