With the sweet smell of blood still lingering in the water after the encounter with the lethal predator in Shark Attack (1999), the marine biologist, Dr Nick Harris, finds himself fighting a losing battle. As the oceanic monster escapes from Cape Town's theme park, Water World, and joins a school of six mutated great white sharks, once more, helpless swimmers fall prey to the invincible apex predators. Now, there's no turning back, and Nick has to team up with the experienced Australian shark hunter, Roy Bishop, and the beautiful Samantha Peterson to put an end to this nightmare. Is there a way to stop the second wave of the deadly shark attacks? Written by Nick Riganas

A ripp off of Jaws and Deep Blue Sea anyone.
23 September 2003 | by mack3175See all my reviews

Put those two movies together, and you got Shark Attack 2. Although I did not see the first Shark Attack movie, I seriously doubt I will. Even though the actors seem to do pretty well. The story falls flat on itself, because if you saw Jaws and Deep Blue Sea, well you know what I'm talking about. It's right up there with Jaws:The Revenge. It might has been called Jaws:The Next Generation.
