Good for standard fare mystery-thriller

More a mystery-thriller than a horror, Shark Attack is about a marine biologist who is lured to Africa to investigate a string of gruesome shark attacks that leads to sharks on steriods, sharks curing cancer and a little conspiracy that'll fall together at the end. This is pretty good for a standard fare mystery-thriller which isn't big screen material.
