Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 was good
14 September 2012 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

OK when i saw the trailer for this i thought to myself that this movie was gonna be another cheap ''Shark night 3d'' but no. This movie had effort put into it and it's NOT cheap awful Shark Night 3D. I enjoyed the movie. The acting was good, suspense was good, it had some twists that we're nice too! and a great character development with humor and nice characters! i enjoyed character development and relationships and the team work was great too. Yes, the CGI shark wasn't the best, but there were a lot of good scenes with non-CGI shark and gore scenes too.

This wasn't an average flick with no effort, it was a good movie. With effort put into it and does not deserve to get trashed by dumb kids with ''oooh, the movie was bad! i expected this too be God Father, but it disappointed me!!! skip it!!! 3/10 durr'' no, and that also applies to the first user reviewer (no offense) this is not cheap bad shark money- grabber for me. It's good flick

Yes, some facts about the shark may have been unrealistic, but so? doesn't make it a bad movie, cause it's a movie! and the idea is also nice and rare. You don't see a lot of movie with sharks, tsunami, and markets.

Check it out if you like Shark horror movies. It i snot a masterpiece, but it entertaining. Don't listen to ''average'' IMDb Mr.Negatives who won't give the movie 7 unless it's Citizen Kane or Pulp Fiction. Check it out.

7/10
