ha ha!, 18 August 2008
Author: jcshetler from United States

ha! ha! this "film" is a joke.

it purports to be a "real documentary" and does have actual shark experts, but they turn it into a "movie" with horrible acting, dialog, etc. and fictional scrapes with death. the best parts include: the shark experts fox and clarke being "surprised" by a great white with water being sprayed on them and fake screaming. also the lamest-shark-costume-ever being used for the fake great white/plastic cage attack. i was actually startled by the monstrosity but only because its bottom jaw stuck out at an impossible angle and the possible sight of diver fins coming out the back.

all in all an enjoyable experience watching venerated shark experts trying to act.
