Highly enjoyable bull shi-, er, I mean Bull Shark action, 4 June 2007
Author: HaemovoreRex from United Kingdom

Well firstly, I must admit that I've been a big fan of shark flicks ever since seeing the original (and still by far the very best) Jaws when I was much younger. In fact, sharks in general terrify me so it's almost a morbid curiosity of mine to seek out as many shark movies as possible.

Most of the said films (post Jaws) tend to be fairly run of the mill affairs albeit highly enjoyable ones. The film being reviewed here is a cut above most of its ilk however for a number of reasons.

Firstly, this isn't just a man eating shark plot. Here we have a straight forward, but nonetheless enjoyable 'gangsters searching for hidden loot' scenario weaved into the unfolding events. Secondly and a huge plus this, the film has some very good performances in it, most notably from the always excellent and sadly underrated Lou Diamond Phillips. The special effects to, are very commendable considering that this was a 'made for TV' film i.e.low budget. As is very common with these films, the shark effects vary depending upon what technique is being utilised to portray the voracious predator. As a general rule and as is very usually the case in all such films, the CGI shark effects pale in comparison to the model work. And finally, well I've just got to say it – although there aren't many present, the ladies that feature in this are universally hot including the ever lovely Kristy Swanson.

Gore wise, (always another plus in these shark oriented movies) there's a few fairly decent scenes in store including one brief shock moment when Lou Diamond Phillips grabs someone's arm only to find that the rest of the body is no longer attached to said appendage(!!!)

All in all, if like me, you like your films with BITE, then this is definitely well worth a look.
