A businessman sinks $200 million into a special project to help fight Alzheimer's disease. As part of this project, medical biologist Susan McAlester rather naughtily figures out a way to genetically enlarge shark brains, so that disease-battling enzymes can be harvested. However, the shark subjects become super smart and decide they don't much like being cooped up in pens and being stabbed with hypodermics, so they figure a way to break out and make for the open sea...

An uncredited Ronny Cox doesn't get any lines at all, in the one scene, in which he appears. See more »
When they are extracting the protein from the shark, the monitor displays real-time MRI imaging showing the insertion of the probe into the shark's brain. This is impossible, since they removed the imaging device before placing the probe jig. See more »
We will start with the perfect omelette which is made with two eggs not three. Amateurs often add milk for density; this is a mistake.

Deep Blue Sea is one of those films that you simply cannot take seriously or you will go out of your mind with annoyance. It seems like the film makers thought about having a plot, but then they found they could have way more fun playing with the CGI Sharks (which are pretty good actually) The conversation between the film makers probably went something like this.
'Hey i have a great idea for a story, we can breed super sharks with oversize brain capacity in the quest to find a cure for Altziemers disease'
'That sounds good, then we can have the sharks get out of control and add some action sequences'
'Yeah good idea, but lets show the scientific side first while we build the characters'
'Yeah of course we have to build the characters and set the scene, wow what's that over there; come and take a look what the special effects team have done it's brilliant'
'Wow that's really cool, lets have lots of that.'
'But what about the story and character depth'
'We could always show the sexy female lead in her underwear, i reckon that and loads of sharks and death will distract the audience enough and they'll never notice'
And so Deep Blue Sea was born, and guess what? It's actually a good laugh and has wall to wall action, sharks and blood; and oh yeah! The female lead gets down to her underwear too, SHOCKER!
Please accept my apologies for the rather corny review, but i felt it was very fitting for this movie.
6/10 By the way Yes i did enjoy it, just in case you were wondering.
