The mutant sharks from Dr. Craven's experiments in "Shark Attack 1" are back, this time choosing Cape Town, South Africa as their hunting ground. Two sisters, Amy and Samantha, while diving near a wreck in the reef are attacked by a shark; Samantha survives. One week later, Dr. Nick Harris and his assistant get the shark and install it as a new attraction at Water World - a Sea World rip-off. When the shark escapes, Nick and Samantha go to hunt it and discover that there are 6 mutant Great Whites living in a cave near the beach, and the Water World's surfing competition might be the next victim! Now they team up with Roy - a Discovery Channel shark hunter - to kill the beasts and save Cape Town. Written by Matheus Marchetti

Enjoyable and fun creature feature
1 October 2015 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

After a captured Great White escapes from a sea park, a former biologist and a victims' sister find their quarry is part of a school of genetically-engineered sharks and must team with a TV-show host to stop them from attacking more.

This turned out to be quite a fun if slightly cheesy killer shark effort. What really works here is the fact that this one gets some nice shark action throughout here as this one plenty of action along the way. It even manages to switch nicely from suspenseful to cheesy, as the opening ocean-going attack on the sister and the first attack on the worker in front of the tourists come off as highly suspenseful scenes as the ocean attack features the stalking through the wrecked ruins while the tank attack is based off the struggle to get out of the water before being eaten as the whole thing is in front of children and a news-crew. There's also plenty of cheesy action here that comes off every nicely, from the capture of the shark as well as the escape attempt of it swimming into the sea afterwards, while the film's two big highlight scenes work in a nice mixture of both as the underwater cage attack works with the brutality of the sharks' relentless banging into the cages and the slow realization of the flimsy cage not holding them out with the goofy shark heads coming through and dragging them away, while the other big scenes here is the great attack on the surfing contest where the high body-count and the action is immensely fun and enjoyable that gets fun again with the relentless action here that it comes off rather well. Even the finale in the cave ins incredibly thrilling battling with the different creatures in and around the caves, even through this here does come with what is the film's only real flaw here in the laughable special effects here. While it's not the fault of the live-action stock-footage which comes of really well and is integrated nicely into here, but overall there's little else here that works about the sharks. The CGI looks best here where it's not noticeably obvious, but the prop-heads are pretty cheesy-looking, never once betray their rubber nature and always configured into the same position that carries on for each scene that runs itself into the ground by featuring the same thing which really ruins the effect. These here are what hold this one back considerably.

Rated R: Graphic Language, Violence, Brief Nudity and a mild sex scene.
