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

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!

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!

This movie had potential despite the overused storyline. I had high hopes for this film after reading some reviews on well known horror websites. But after watching the first ten minutes my hopes went out the door. For starters, the special effects were not that good, and the 3D was average at best. I admit some of the gory parts were not too bad, but it wasn't enough to save the film. And the acting was below average compared to some Aussie horrors I've seen. You could tell that the accents they were trying to do were orientated towards the U.S market, as most Americans wouldn't understand what they were saying if they were speaking with the full Aussie twang unless there were subtitles, and that made the film even more laughable for me as a Kiwi who lived in Aussie for years. The idea was there but they failed to deliver here, again I'm sure it was aimed towards the U.S market. So I give this movie a 3 out of 10, the extra points for the gore (even though there wasn't a lot).
