Trivia

The VFX crew also provided a slightly different look two underwater views versus the shark above the water VFX Anderson stated " the underwater look of the shark had a particularly aesthetic that was really driven by Jaume and his scene by scene mood of the film, we started with very realistic looks and actions culled from a large amount of shark reference footage, that drove both the look development and character development at ILP, what was this actual difference? Underwater we did tend to keep the shark a bit more shiny than it is in stock footage it just made our hero shark more of a star than the flat look of unlit footage. We were also balancing the look between visibility and naturalistic blending of the shark into the environment. Most animal, sharks included are designed to blend into the environment our job is to use visibility selectivity to meet the needs and direct the audience and eye when we want our need to".

Goofs

There are a few instances where the shark is shown backing up after striking an obstacle, something that is physically impossible for a shark. They would have to stop moving altogether and sink back to move backwards. See more »

such a disappointment
8 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Well, This movie is the worst movie I have seen this year. I just saw Blake Lively in Cafe Society, and there she really could show what she is capable of. In The Shallows the director only showed us what a fine figure she has for her age. I was never afraid of the shark and sometimes laughed because it all was so ridiculous. With sky-ping and speaking to a camera the director wanted to give a modern touch to the movie but that was simply to fill the gaps of the story and nearly make me walk out of the theatre. I had to think a lot of Jaws, the movie of Steven Spielberg of 1975. Why are the old movies so much better than the new movies? Please stop with these nonsense and show us the old movies. I felt very sorry for Blake Lively that she had to appear in such a bad movie, where nothing happens. What a disappointment. The only good thing about the movie was that it not lasted more than 80 minutes.
