Special effects were incredible!!
23 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Go see it and leave your opinions at home. I felt there was not one single scene where I thought "Yeah. that was a cheesy shark effect". Quite a few "jump out of your seat" moments that makes this a really intense and entertaining movie. You spend a lot of time scanning the water behind Nancy for a clue of where the shark might be. If you like adventure, suspense, and horror, this is the movie to see this weekend! Blake Lively played the part of Nancy well, and you suffer along with every drop of blood she loses. I haven't had such a good time at the movies in a long time. It came out one day early at the local cinema, and I just had to see it. Very real and believable special effects makes this the shark movie that now sets the bar for all other shark movies. I rated it 8 out of 10, because of a few plot holes that could have been patched fairly easy, but were overlooked. This movie shows what can be done with a good special effects team and the attention to detail that sets this movie apart from others released over the past few years. If this movie causes a resurgence of animal attack movies I for one am ready for the ride, because if they are as well done as "The Shallows" I will have a reason to see things on the big screen instead of waiting for the DVD.
