After just barely getting out of the water without becoming lunch, the "brooding" surfer dives back in to save the beautiful camera lady from the increasingly wild group of sharks. Narrowly dodging both tooth and fin the crew all make it to the surface alive, and after witnessing what seems to be a brutal inter water grudge match between warring jaws clans, they decide to call it a day, and head inland...........Where they are attacked by a group of Colombian terrorist, Rambo's friend stealing paramilitary types, captured, brought back to their boat and threatened with rape and torture.
You can almost hear the pitch guy, sweating dripping from his brow. The executives didn't like the shark idea, and it's up to him and him alone to save the movie. "Well it's not only the sharks, you see these sleazy Colombian coke smugglers types show up and pull them all onto a boat." He scans the room, they all appear a little happier, but not much, then it hits him. "Where they are all attacked by the biggest Salt Water Crocodile the world has ever seen." Smiles all around, the movie is saved.
Blood Surf's "story" is pulled in more directions than the Backstreet Boys thrown into a Junior High Girl's Gym Locker Room. We've got hot shark dodging action, Terrorist attacks, wild jungle traps, a surfer's love affair with a beautiful, yet underage local girl. Oh yea, and the Cheesiest Crocodile the world of Giant Crocodile Cinema has ever seen.Read more ›
The screenplay is very silly and quite bad. The lead characters are stupid (otherwise they wouldn't be blood surfing) and don't seem to care much when some of their friends gets killed. Most of the actors are mediocre at best, except for Katie Fischer, who plays the photographer, Cecily. The editing is also quite poor and manages to ruin one scene that could have been quite cool. The worst thing about the movie, however, is probably the extremely bad crocodile FX. It doesn't even move its legs while swimming.
So, this is not a good movie, and I didn't expect it to be. Still, it is entertaining enough to be a painless way to kill one and a half hours if you're bored and don't have too high expectations on it.
The whole thing was just a mess. The acting was so bad that you were cheering on the croc to kill off the actors.
If you want to waste some time and have to see this one I would suggest that you borrow it from someone who has it or wait for a re-run of this on the sci-fi channel. Save your $!
My recommendation rating: 5.5 out of 10. Explanation of recommendation rating: "You'll probably enjoy this film only if you're a hardcore fan of the genre. More than its share of flaws. Serious genre fans should use caution and all others should stay away."
The premise (modified from the box description): Follow an MTV style filmmaker as she and her crew shoot an expose of the latest, most dangerous craze in extreme sports-bloodsurfing, or surfing in shark infested waters while intentionally trying to attract the creatures. While trying to shoot in Australia, the crew encounters non-cooperative locals and various kinds of relationship problems. They also get more than they bargained for while bloodsurfing in an isolated location. Not only are the sharks putting them at risk, but there just may be a legendary monster in the water.
"Mish-mash" describes this film better than such a non-technical term should. The premise is a mish-mash of Lake Placid, Anaconda, and tens of other monster films, with some touches of adventure and romance thrown in for (good?) measure. The quality of the film is a mish-mash of a too-confusing script with more than its share of holes, some pretty hokey dialogue, and some decent direction, editing and performances, with surprisingly good cinematography, occasional moments of tension, and the requisite beautiful actresses.
The biggest problems seem to arise from the script, which isn't very straightforward about what bloodsurfing is, why it is popular, what the relationships are among the principle characters, who some later characters are and why they are taking the actions they're taking.Read more ›
