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

After the Tsunami hits the supermarket, the camera pans back showing the devastation and passes over the top of the shelves with stuff washed up and shows a pair of thongs sitting upright and next to each other like someone just slipped them off. 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!

I can't imagine it's all that hard that execute a killer shark flick. However I must be wrong because there are only a handful of them that really work like the original Jaws, the silly but incredibly entertaining Deep Blue Sea and Open Water amongst a few others. It's hard to believe something could be less effective in this sub genre recently than the cinematic dud Shark Night but here it is. A film populated with even dumber characters and tortuously painful pacing. The film features on a group of annoying characters after a painfully unnecessary setup who are given generically long back stories only so we can dislike them even more.They become trapped in a supermarket after a freak tsunami hits the coast with some hungry cgi sharks. The only positive thing about the film is a few bits of nice cinematography and decent spfx. Other than that its a hodgepodge of expected genre film clichés populated with some of the most annoyingly dumb characters I've seen in quite sometime. Unfortunately what could have been a cheesetastic gory foray into fun ends up committing the biggest cardinal sin of all it's terribly boring. Bait is a sad disappointment after seeing the tightly crafted trailer I expected so much more but I guess I should have known better it's just another in a long line of over budgeted flicks with less imagination and entertainment value than watching a leprechaun sequel, who knew looking back on the mediocre Jaws sequels that it would been some of the highest points in the cinematic sub genre. So sad, so very sad.
