Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
A businessman sinks $200 million into a special project to help fight Alzheimer's disease. As part of this project, medical biologist Susan McAlester rather naughtily figures out a way to genetically enlarge shark brains, so that disease-battling enzymes can be harvested. However, the shark subjects become super smart and decide they don't much like being cooped up in pens and being stabbed with hypodermics, so they figure a way to break out and make for the open sea...Written by

The spears makeshift bomb is constructed from flare gun cartridges. The cartridges are disassembled and the black powder is poured into one of the original spears. The spear has a steel cable attached to it and when it's connected to a car battery the bomb explodes. Carter Blake (Thomas Jane) is seen making the bomb in the movie. This scene was also tested on an episode of Mythbusters. See more »
When Dr. Whitlock first injects the protein complex into the vial, he holds it up and you can see that the vial is about half full. But when he hands the vial to Dr. McAlester it is all the way full. See more »

SPOILER:In a test screening one month before the film's opening, the ending had Susan (Saffron Burrows) escaping the shark at the end and saving the day with the spear gun. Audiences booed that ending, and sure enough, it came out with Susan getting eaten and Preacher (LL Cool J) saving the day. You can actually tell that some of the final shots were three-shots, with empty space where Burrows would have been. Sometimes Thomas Jane's eye-line looks like it should go to her. She's been digitally erased. See more »
Deep Blue Sea is one of those films that you simply cannot take seriously or you will go out of your mind with annoyance. It seems like the film makers thought about having a plot, but then they found they could have way more fun playing with the CGI Sharks (which are pretty good actually) The conversation between the film makers probably went something like this.
'Hey i have a great idea for a story, we can breed super sharks with oversize brain capacity in the quest to find a cure for Altziemers disease'
'That sounds good, then we can have the sharks get out of control and add some action sequences'
'Yeah good idea, but lets show the scientific side first while we build the characters'
'Yeah of course we have to build the characters and set the scene, wow what's that over there; come and take a look what the special effects team have done it's brilliant'
'Wow that's really cool, lets have lots of that.'
'But what about the story and character depth'
'We could always show the sexy female lead in her underwear, i reckon that and loads of sharks and death will distract the audience enough and they'll never notice'
And so Deep Blue Sea was born, and guess what? It's actually a good laugh and has wall to wall action, sharks and blood; and oh yeah! The female lead gets down to her underwear too, SHOCKER!
Please accept my apologies for the rather corny review, but i felt it was very fitting for this movie.
6/10 By the way Yes i did enjoy it, just in case you were wondering.
