cool mechanical shark
17 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

i like the fact that the shark was the first ever to be completely remote controlled. i thought the movie was good. the fact that someone dies in the first few minutes made me realize that anyone could ide in the movie. overall, i thought the movie was pretty good, for a made-for-tv movie.
