Editorial Reviews

Dive into this carnivorous adventure when a massive man-eating bull shark takes over the quiet waters of the Mississippi. Nobody knows what or who is leaving behind mangled remains on the banks of a Louisiana river until it is revealed that there is one breed of shark that can live in fresh water a giant carnivore, stalking the living under the surface. Now, as workers search the river for a source of natural gas, and criminals are hunting a buried treasure, it is up to a small group of hunters to find and destroy the murderous beast, bent on killing anything that leaves the shore

RED WATER

This film is honestly not as bad as every one makes it out to be, I mean just take it for what it is. And what is it exactly you might ask, well it is a rip off b movie, and for that it really isn't that bad. Sure it isn't a classic in any sense but it is still entertaining enough for a boring night with nothing to do.

Director Charles Robert Carner does what he can with this film, it turned out ok for a cheap rip off film. Writers J.D. Feigelson and Chris Mack are mainly the ones to blame here, even I can't deny that the script could have been better. Also the acting was ok at best from most, Lou Diamond Phillips was great as the lead in this film but I have seen him do much better [The Triangle]. Still The Lou shines in any and everything he does. Phillips steals the show and rightfully as the lead. Kristy Swanson did well in her part as Phillips ex wife. Coolio like Lou was only ok in his part of some side kick goon. But I must say that the actor who played Bret was well beyond every one else in this film. But other then him nobody else seemed to do any thing other then ok.

The story was an easy one to follow, a shark is loose in the fresh water of the Mississippi. It just so happens that in that same water is some people drilling for natural gas, and some guys looking for some money that was lost in the river 5 years ago. As it turns out both groups cross paths and find them selves battling each other as well as the shark. Actually when I spell all of this it seems like the story should have been much better, but I'll stick by what I wrote earlier and say that this film is ok for a rip off movie.

What's wrong with a straight-up shark thriller? Deep Blue Sea showed us that character development and sparkling dialogue aren't necessary when you approach shark movies with craftsmanship and little pretention.
RED WATER is here to remind us how hideously wrong it can all go. Should we start with the acting? Let's. Lou Diamond Phillips is not a bad actor. I loved his over-the-top performance in THE BIG HIT, but he plays it straight here, bogging down in unspeakable dialogue and trying to make the melodrama appear genuine. I haven't seen Kristy Swanson since the Buffy Movie. Her appearance is significant because I thought she was dead.. :/
Coolio doesn't need much talent: he character ought to be natural to him. The bad guy is okay, typically scruffy and unshaven.
All of these actors certainly could have done better had they had better dialogue to spew. How many times have we seen the scene where the ex-husband and ex-wife begin to be reuinted in the face of danger? How about where the hero mournfully recounts his troubled past?
But let's talk about what REALLY matters. The animatronic shark looks great, but it is intercut with some shoddy CGI work, and it frequently changes size and shape. There are several attacks at the beginning, all of them predictable (a bad sign, DEEP BLUE SEA's best attacks were viscous and surprising) and bloody, but not done in a visceral fashion. There's no new camerawork or methods of making an old creature attack more hard-hitting. When people are killed, I felt very little.
Several opportunities to create genuine suspense (the flashing on the underwater lights to alert the divers of the sharks presence) are squandered so often that their mere possibilites must have been accidents.

Big bull shark swims into fresh water river, actually that can happen, Bulls are able to do that. This bull attacks people and pursues you. Not actually true there, I don't believe sharks actively hunt man, most humans don't have enough body to satisfy the shark, we just happen to look like seals sometimes when we are floating on the surface, and like puppies and kittens and human babies everything is explored by the mouth, with sharp teeth sharks are going to do damage testing us to see what we are and yes it will hurt. Obviously I am mixed when it comes to shark films Hollywood makes out to be monsters that they really are not. Humans are easy prey especially in the water, it it wasn't for our ability to use tools and great weapons we would not be a top preditor on the food chain.

So the story, treasure in river, people after treasure, shark in river, it came up river, eats people playing in water, beaches closed, shark hunt on for man eater, bad guys, good guys, some good guys get eaten by sharks, bad guys make good guys risk lives in water with shark, most if not all bad guys eaten by shark, cute star survives, gets girl, shark dies, same killer shark scenario different setting and players.

With that being said it is a good story the shark looks pretty dang good. I think they gave him a little bit of a white shark look in some scenes, but white sharks are highly identifiable and bigger than a bull.

this one time in 1920 something a bull shark did get into the mississippi river and kill a kid and a man and attacked two others. good enough for the digital shelf and the dvd came in new conditon. Shark movies never get old infact my favorite movie is jaws and this is jaws but in the lake. the plot is like that one movie night of the sharks but with more shark attacks. kinda makes you think who is the real shark(s) in the movie. was a TNT made for tv movie and worth the watch in my opinion as I love z-rated shark movies. no bull sharks dont get that big.
