Storyline

An underwater earthquake generates a tsunami that strikes Malibu, bringing a hunting pack of prehistoric-looking goblin sharks to the surface. Although the beach is evacuated before the big wave strikes, a group of lifeguards and a crew of construction workers are stranded in the high water and have to fight the sharks to get to dry land.

Trivia

The final shot is a close-up of rescue helicopter approaching the west coast disaster site shows the logo (inverted) of Scott & White Hospital and Clinic which is located in Temple, Texas 1400 miles east. See more »

Goofs

After the tsunami has hit, the water level on the outside of the lifeguard shack is just a couple of inches below the windows. But when we look at the characters inside the shack, the water level is only about a foot deep. This indicates that there is a difference in water levels by about two feet between the inside and outside water levels. See more »

8 September 2012 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

Just don't expect too much out of this movie, and you'll be satisfied with it. It was a reasonably scary movie. It wasn't meant to be Jaws or an Academy award winning movie at that-just entertaining. The tsunami scene was scary, and several of the shark attack scenes made me jump out of my seat, and the lady's responses to having the bandage put on her wound (SHE SCREAMED OUT IN PAIN!!!!!) were realistic. It was a good escape from reality, as movies are supposed to be. It will remind you a bit of Baywatch with a shark attack and a tidal wave thrown in for good measure. I think that if you have the time, you should check it out if you like horror/disaster/good looking people on a beach type movie.
