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!Read more ›
I lost track of the number of scenes where someone looks as though they are about to say something profound, only to look off in the distance, saying nothing (Assante in particular). The premise is fraught with inconsistencies and great lapses in logic. The few townsfolk featured are either greedy, corrupt, or stupid, as they keep referring to `their community' that is about to be taken away from them and replaced with fancy homes they can't afford. It's no surprise then that the EVIL Assante sanctions kidnapping and murder in order to further his schemes. Thank goodness they just happened to have those snazzy `pulse' guns on hand. Goodness knows what they would have done without them.
If you have a lot of time to kill, this may provide some diversion.
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.
It is not terrible, but the shark attacks are not as spectacular as they could be. This is made up for by adding more of them... kind of a quantity over quality deal. You see plenty of swimming sharks and more sharks and people falling in the water and more sharks and sharks lunging at the camera with shrieking violins to try scare you and some bloody water.
More drama and drama and some more scenes of sharks swimming violently.
The bigger issue is that there is little to no involvement of the sharks in the plot. No one even knows the sharks are there until 3/4 of the film is even over with. They may show shark kills, but they are not connected to the film - the town isn't scared of sharks or even notice that people are missing. The threat of the film is the land developer... he has an old plant that is pumping waste into the surrounding waters. The sharks are affected by it becoming overly aggressive, but the majority of the film doesn't even acknowledge the sharks at all. This leaves the viewer to drudge through a slow moving plot of this drama.... only being kept watching due to the hopes of seeing the next shark attack.Read more ›
