Very tough to sit through, 30 May 2010
Author: Wizard-8 from Victoria, BC

This is a production from RHI Entertainment, the makers and distributors of a number of awful movies like "Sharpshooter", "Depth Charge", and "Mask Of The Ninja". This should be your first clue as to the quality of this movie. The second clue is that this movie, like those others, was made for television. So there's no foul language, no nudity, no sex, and the presentation of blood and (very limited) gore could easily be showcased on prime time. But even if the movie had any of that juicy stuff, it would still be pretty hard to sit through. The script is awful - it stretches the movie past the breaking point by making the movie last more than two and a half hours. It takes forever for the characters to realize that something strange is going on and that a lot of people are missing, and even longer to find out that it's sharks causing the problems. The movie is also not very well made, with cheap-looking CGI sharks and cinematography that looks somewhat dark even when the movie is outdoors in the sunshine. There is an extremely high body count, and there is a somewhat amusing small subplot about a little girl afraid of the water, but those things are just a couple of drops in a sea of ineptness.
