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 »

So bad its good
29 July 2013 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

OK. I saw this piece of rubbish on our Space channel. I couldn't believe how bad it was. It was so bad Donkey Punch was actually better. Clichéd. Bad acting or was it over acting. Still I watched with fascination this train wreck. Or was it a shark wreck. As to the sharks. Well they were, what can I say, over the top!

If there was one thing I kept hoping for it was that all of them, and I mean all of them were eaten by the sharks. It would save us a lot of pain.

But sometimes it is just fun to watch a really bad movie. No not Ed Wood bad but well just bad.

Watch if you dare!!!!!!
