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 »
Do you see it anywhere?
Yeah I see it, but I'm keeping it a secret from you because I want you to be surprised.
Oh thank you for your thought of this Kyle. Really, it's always what I wanted in a boyfriend.
[the shark swims past the rear end of the car]
Oh! I can't handle this much longer. It may seem surprising, but I'm not equip to deal with this kind of situation.

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.
