Trivia

The license plate on the sunken car is Louisiana 007 o 981 - the same one that Hooper pulled out of the shark in Jaws (1975) also the same one pulled out of the tiger sharks mouth in deep blue sea by Thomas Jane. See more »

Goofs

The shark portrayed in the film is supposedly a Bull Shark yet it is quite clearly a Great White and the tooth John throws into the water at the end belongs to neither species and has more in common with that of the Blue or Tiger Shark. See more »

Forgettable Adventure
11 July 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Louisiana, the fisherman John Sanders (Lou Diamond Phillips) is near to lose his boat to the bank when his ex-wife Kelli Raymond (Kristy Swanson) that works in environment research and the arrogant son of her boss Gene Bradley (Gideon Emery) offer an amount for him to help their company in a drilling operation in the river. Meanwhile a freshwater shark is attacking people in the area. When they arrive in the site, they see an anchored boat and they believe that belong to their competitors from the Global Oil Company. However they are dangerous criminals that are seeking a large amount of stolen money that is hidden in the bottom of the river. Gene confronts the mobsters and the group is threatened by the gangsters.

"Red Water" is a forgettable adventure with the usual flaws and clichés of B-movies of the genre. Kristy Swanson is very sexy and beautiful and I did not recognize her. The scene of a hiking group near a bridge is totally out of the context and ridiculous. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Rio Sangrento" ("Bloody River")
