Storyline

In the quiet waters of the Mississippi, body parts are being discovered. No one knows what is behind it all, until a huge man eating bull shark turns up. This bull shark is different, as it can breath in fresh water, making a deadly encounter between anyone who comes before it. John Sanders must now try and reach the surface, with his ex-wife and whilst being held hostage. Written by Film_Fan

Yep,it's as bad as you can possibly fathom
18 June 2004 | by cmacaroniSee all my reviews

My partner and i enjoy our regular DVD night's as the video shop we use has the biggest archive of hard to find movie's in Tauranga,but as my missus is usually in a hurry,she just grab's random movie's cause the cover look's good without reading the blurb on the back of the cover,hence we end up viewing the odd abomination such as this film.Some of my mate's came round that fateful night and viewed this jaw's invading the waterway's of a small hick town/criminal's searching for submerged loot sub plot, we could not help but giggle,make snide remark's and pick hole's in the sub porn wooden acting and the 'menacing' bull shark.Lot's of the ridicule was directed at coolio, washed up rapper/actor who seem's to think he's in a L.A gangsta flick and not in a small backwater community being terrorized by a vengeful, rubbery shark.Lou diamond phillip's career has taken a turn for the worst over the year's,yet he was in some fairly good movie's like La bamba,Young guns and The first power(i liked it anyway).Well worth a look to poke fun at but seriously do not see this thinking your gonna get a top notch thriller.
