Nothing new for us Shark-aholics, but still entertaining.
The other review here really covers the movie really well. It's completely right when you read that it unfortunately doesn't cover that much Great White territory. Probably because Great Whites were just beginning to be truly studied at that time. Watching GWD I kept thinking I knew everything that was being said. It's true. If you've watched loads of Shark Week and National Geographic etc., none of this should be really that informative. But it is a rare documentary that has it's own unique footage. So you will be seeing new footage of sharks, and creatures of the sea. Which is good enough for a person who loves the ocean and it's inhabitants. There are a couple fantastic scenes that I really enjoyed, one being a shot of a Great White eating another Great White, and of course the footage of a man who's brought on board only moments after a shark attack. At first I thought it was fake, but looking over it again, it does seem pretty real. Especially getting a look at that pale and shock-induced face he was sporting. Like I said previously, it's nothing new for shark enthusiasts, but it does do the trick in entertaining the viewer.
