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

This was the first movie Stephen King saw after his near fatal encounter with a van he stated "my first trip after being smacked by a van and almost killed was to the movies, I went in my wheelchair and loved every minute of it". See more »
At the end of the film, Dr. McCallister jumps into the water having cut her hand to attract the attention of the shark with her blood. The time taken for the shark to detect her blood is extremely short - far, far shorter than the time it would take for it to diffuse through the water even if there were considerably stronger currents than were visible.

i'm no professional, but i thought deep blue sea was an excellent shark movie. the sharks were scary, surprising and fast. i thought the casting was excellent ("carter" was a cutie and the cook was funny) and i really liked the ending...no matter what anybody says. i thought the plot was good and simple enough that you didn't have to do any deep thinking really. and there really wasn't enough time during attacks for my stomach to untense. the girl scientist's accent got annoying at times, but she was a believable character. i wasn't crazy about samuel l jackson's character, but he made it work...and did i add that the shark attacks were scary and GOOD!! i'll admit it...i JUMPED!!
