Editorial Reviews

The Seventh installment in the Maneater Series, Shark Swarm is the highly anticipated miniseries now available for the first time on DVD. For decades, the Pacific waters have been a dumping ground for atomic-testing debris, bacterial pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, and nuclear waste. Some ocean species died off. Others adapted. When a group of Marine Biologists discover a beached Bull Shark, they find that it has sensory organs exhibiting violent tendencies-even after death. But the news continues to get worse. When tourists begin disappearing all over the fishing town of Full Moon Bay, a team of scientists learn that a more dangerous species, the Great White, is now loose, 40 strong, and cutting through the waters together with one horrifying purpose - to kill for pleasure. featuring Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill), Armand Asante (American Gangster), John Schneider (Millville), Shark Swarm, a jaw-snapping, bone-crushing ecological thriller miniseries about the day nature really goes wild.

Greedy land developing schmuck, Armand Assante is buying up the properties of a small coastal fishing town called Full Moon Bay so he can put up a bunch of condos. He's got everyone in his pocket, but fisherman John Schneider just won't sell, and his property is the key to the whole project! Assante decides to play hardball by bullying Schneider with his henchmen. But most importantly, he's dumping toxins in the ocean to kill off all the fish, and in theory, ruin Schneider's business.
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!

Yes, this is a very very very long shark movie featuring CGI denizens of the deep. The story could have been summed up in a few words but for some reason they thought it should take 164 minutes. The plot features an EVIL land developer (Armand Assante) who wants to decimate a small community in order to build a better community for the wealthy. Most of the locals go along with this scheme, eagerly giving up home and hearth for filthy lucre! One stubborn SOB (John Schneider) refuses to give in. He's a fisherman, so EVIL Assante poisons the waters so there are no fishes to be had. Enter the sharks who apparently like the `poison' and set about eating quite a few people (I counted over 20-some bodies, yet no one seems to notice these people were missing. In passing, a teacher mentions 3 delinquent students. That's it, no search parties, no outrage. Gone and certainly forgotten).
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.

Obviously, this movie is not Jaws. To hold it to those standards is setting the viewer up for immediate disappointment. But if you take the movie for what it is--a two-hour-and-forty-minute shark drama/epic, then you just might enjoy it as much as I did.

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.

This movie had an interesting story. I watched it because I had family members that were extras in the movie (parts of the movie were filmed in Mendocino). I thought some parts were a little gross, but the story held our attention. I thought certain things were unbelievable but I thought Daryl Hannah and John Schneider did a good acting job.

As you may have read in other reviews, this movie is a longer film. This does not help the movie any as some of it could have certainly been trimmed and edited out to make the film more enjoyable. Imagine a drama film about a greedy developer trying to buy out everyone on a coastal fishing town... they film the whole movie with alot of long, drawn out scenes to make the movie a full length of say 1 hour and 50 minutes. Then they decide it is too dull, so they film a bunch of sharks and shark kills and speckle it through out the movie - making it the 2 hours plus that it is. Now you have our film.

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.
