Trivia

The opening sequence at sea looks like it takes place on one boat but was actually two boats. They filmed on a sailboat for one day during principal photography. The film needed pick-ups and they rented a cheaper boat to double for the hero boat. You can tell they don't match in certain shots as the original boat was longer and had a mast and large ships wheel. See more »

Goofs

There is no air inside of a shark. A chainsaw would not run if you tried to operate one in there. See more »

Quotes

April: What's wrong?
Fin: Your son wants to go into a helicopter and drop a bomb into the tornado.
April: No, it's too dangerous.
Nova: I'll watch his back. I'll be the bombardier.
April: Then definitely not.

One of the funnest "bad movies" I have ever seen.
12 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Listen--there is a certain kind of spectrum of movies. There are the hugely-budgeted blockbusters, and then the b-movies, which live in their own little world. You cannot watch a b-movie with the same eyes that you do a blockbuster. If you do, and if you are overly critical, you will probably not enjoy it, and Asylum Studios will just laugh at you.

I honestly loved this movie! The difference between this and a lot of b- movies is that this film was decently fast-paced--in a lot of low-budget films, they make a ridiculous monster or something, but barely ever show it, and just have lame dialogue in-between. But in this film, the action never stopped. There were flying sharks munching people at least every ten minutes or so. It was fun, and you could tell the people who made it had fun. For the budget that this movie had, I was very impressed. It was quite a ride!
