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...

The license plate pulled from a shark's teeth is the same plate as the one found in the tiger shark in Jaws (1975). See more »
When Carter first grabs the "Tiger" shark's Dorsal fin as he tries to remove the license plate, there are several wide shots that show he is too far from the mouth to be able to reach the plate, which would be accurate with the portrayed size of the shark. In the close-up shots, he is still holding onto the dorsal fin, but is able to reach the mouth. See more »
i'm no professional, but i thought deep blue sea was an excellent shark movie. the sharks were scary, surprising and fast. i thought the casting was excellent ("carter" was a cutie and the cook was funny) and i really liked the ending...no matter what anybody says. i thought the plot was good and simple enough that you didn't have to do any deep thinking really. and there really wasn't enough time during attacks for my stomach to untense. the girl scientist's accent got annoying at times, but she was a believable character. i wasn't crazy about samuel l jackson's character, but he made it work...and did i add that the shark attacks were scary and GOOD!! i'll admit it...i JUMPED!!
