Don't believe the other reviews!
22 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Listen, people are giving this movie bad word of mouth for no reason! If you are a fan of cheesy Movies or think you are, you could find this disapointing. But if you are seriously into bad cheesy movies, bottom of the barrel bad films with stock footage, bad acting, and fake gore, than this movie is for you! Awesome shark stock footage that has no place in the actual movie being reused over and over, horrible acting by Casper Van Diem, no tense moments in a thriller labled movie...basically everything you want in a cheesy rip off. So people, stop rating this movie as if it should be taken seriously. It SHOULD be taken as a joke! If you can do that and lower your expectations like I did, you'll have a good time laughing your ass off at this film! On a B-Movie scale, I give it a 7 out of 10. Don't rate this movie on an actual scale comparing it to serious films. Rate it on a B-Movie scale
