Deep Blue Sea gives good rush -- earning its stripes as one terrific junk movie.
80
Dallas Observer
Not everything in the film happens according to the traditional, overly familiar blueprint.
75
ReelViews
It proves capable of doing something that many more artistically ambitious films fail at: entertaining an audience for nearly two hours.
70
Film Threat
If distinctly uneven CGI, minimal originality and overly convenient plot devices turn you off, this may not be your film.
70
This movie's entire raison d'etre (that's French for "shark meat") is to toy creatively with the "rules."
60
Powered by exceptional displays of physical filmmaking, Deep Blue Sea is pulled back to shore by the usual suspects -- weak plotting and weaker dialogue.
50
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
One of those stupid movies that are good to relax with.
25
Chicago Tribune
Even overlooking the fundamental inanity of the movie, one is left to contend with some offensive racial stereotyping.
25
Unsalvageable B-movie junk.
25
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
So uninvolving as basic storytelling that it quickly becomes boring.
