Whoo. This was an overly ambitious project considering its obviously LOW budget. Five super-sharks poised to deliver Jaws-like terror. The opening credits were wonderful. Wetting the appetite for a slick movie. To be fair, the production values are decent throughout, except for the cheesy shark fins. Computer animation is above par for such a low budget flick. Unfortunately Dan Grodnick doesn't have a clue about creating suspense or delivering scares. Although his actors for the most part tried to deliver credible performances, his characters have all the depth of those found in bad 80s porn movies. A few are so far over-the-top that they deflate any pretense of this being an actual horror movie. Played for humor, their scenes are tedious to an extreme. A blundering pop-jazz soundtrack adds to the annoyance factor. The action sequences are pathetic, no doubt due to the ambitious task of compositing the animated shark action with live actors on a shoestring budget, or choreographing the plastic shark fins. For adolescent fans interested in the T'N'A factor, it is non-existent here. There are some talented babes in very minor roles. Hopefully they'll turn up in better movies with more substantial roles.
