Deep Blue Sea (BD)
Researchers on the undersea laboratory Aquatica have genetically altered the brains of captive sharks to develop a potential cure for Alzheimer’s disease. There is one unexpected side effect. The sharks are getting smarter. You can swim but you can’t hide when a tropical storm floods Aquatica, plunging Samuel L. Jackson, Saffron Burrows, Thomas Jane, LL Cool J and the rest of the crew into a harrowing battle of wits against sleek killing – and thinking! – machines. Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Die Hard 2) directs, squeezing nerve-jangling suspense and thrills from a film that’s a monster movie, a chase movie, a movie that snaps hold and won’t let go. Dive in!]]>

Thomas Jane looks great as what my friends and I simply refer to as "the swimmer", amazing physique! And L.L. Cool J is great comic relief especially after we experience the sudden and unexpected demise of one of the main characters in the movie!! My personal favorite scene in the movie simply because of that shock value! Give this one a try! It is NOT boring!
Deep Blue Sea is one of the movies I own.
I'm not going to rehash the plot; plenty of folk have done that already. The acting is decent on all fronts; but the actors we're here to watch don't have any lines of dialogue. There are quite a few 'Whoa!" moments, knocking you back in your seat not because of gore, but just because you didn't expect THAT to happen. But the gore is good too, not over-powering though. There is a lot of situational/ironic comedy (The anti-smoking ad and the chef's special are my favourites). And there are a few cases of 'That would never happen'. But my brain shut off the switch that follows the logic stream and I enjoyed it for what it was: a B-Grade monster flick.
The special features are nothing to scream about; what they have here is pretty much just the expected fare - a commentary track, a few deleted scenes, and a behind the scenes featurette. They could have done better. The soundtrack is decent, but again, nothing to prompt a need to own; it has passable 2-channel and 5.1. The digital transfer is awesome though, and for me that more than makes up for the lackluster technical and special features.
There are a LOT of bad shark movies, even or especially from the Jaws franchise. But Deep Blue Sea somehow manages to swim above the rest. It's a good addition to a BD collection if you want to watch monster sharks outsmart the human cast.
I had seen this long time ago, and when we watched it together, she agreed it was far better than even Jaws, which she saw in the theatre.
Great story line, some great intense moments.
