After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents.
This movie is about a group of people who get trapped in a Supermarket after a Tsunami hits the coast of Queensland, Australia. But they soon find out that they have more to worry about than being in a flooded grocery store, there's 12 foot sharks swimming around them, and it's hungry. Written by

Cariba Heine and Phoebe Tonkin starred together in the Australian TV show H20: Just Add Water. They played two out of the three mermaid friends Rikki Chadwick and Cleo Sertori. However, in this film, they don't share any screen time till the end of the film and they do not exchange any dialogue between each other. When Martin Sacks' character walks in the store after locking Phoebe's character in the car, a board has a Melon named as H20 Melon. See more »
The characters are worried about live electrical wires touching the water, yet to turn it off they flip a switch already underwater. This would mean that the water is already conducting electricity in the first place. See more »
It's coming back!
[we see the fin swimming pass the far end]
Why does it keep doing that, just circling?
Cause It's not sure what we are. It's curious.
Curious about what, sharks are only curious about one thing. It's trying to decide if were food or not!

Stop doing this. Dumb, laughably awful shark movies are not funny anymore. As far as I'm concerned, they never were funny. Stop insulting Jaws and acting as if sharks are evil killing machines when they're not and make something which is actually funny. Yet another shark B movie, this one is The Mist meets Deep Blue Sea, as following a tsunami a supermarket is flooded and 2 horribly rendered great white sharks start snacking on the survivors trapped in the supermarket. That is a faintly awesome premise, and it could possibly happen in real life. The bad acting and writing were to be expected, but surely it would be fun and funny right? Wrong. This is about as exciting and interesting as your routine trip to the supermarket, and despite its potential it doesn't do anything or go anywhere. You can't criticize something which really doesn't care about actual quality too much and the direction is actually decent, but here's a tip: If you can't afford realistic CGI, don't use it at all!
So, terrible writing. That's alright because it's a B movie. The film's biggest crime is that it's not fun or funny. It's actually played relatively straight and it's totally lazy. None of these characters are interesting or funny, and there's no actual tension. Much of the film consists of underwater shots of sharks which could have come straight out of an old Play Station 1 game swimming around in circles. A good example of a dumb shark movie done right is Deep Blue Sea, which at least had some tense moments and clever shocks. This has none of that at all, and it's just another depressing descent into B movie tedium only this time we're in a supermarket. Some may find this a guilty pleasure kind of movie and that's what I was prepared for but instead the film takes itself too seriously even though it's ludicrous and nonsensical. Also, why so many annoying plot holes? If a film features so many stupid things it should at least make them funny. Throw this one to the sharks.
