Storyline

Doctor Mike Olsen returns from his oceanic observation station, where his wife Linda feels in charge, when it's reported in desperate trouble after a sudden shark attack wrecked the oxygen supply. The accompanying ship and even the coast guard are also attacked, and soon other sites in and around the Bermuda triangle, where a few years earlier an alien space-ship crashed, which now seeps a mysterious organic crystal. The US Navy sends a submarine, which also carries bureaucrat Ben Stiles, who berates safety and other violations aboard. More dangers lurk inside as getting out proves physically daunting.

Pretty Much Ten Times Worse Than I Hoped and Feared
29 December 2010 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

When the crew of an underwater lab discovers an unearthly sunken object that is mysteriously attracting hundreds of sharks, they become a security risk and a target.

I do not think this film deserves a real review. It is another shark film, plain and simple, and not a good one. From executive producer Avi Lerner, who also brought us "Kraken", there seems to be the idea that throwing in a big squid or shark is all it takes to keep an audience watching.

The shark subgenre has been done to death. It started off strong with the classic "Jaws", but has gone downhill ever since. The Jaws sequels are decent for what they are, and other shark series are okay. Now we have more than a handful of megalodon films, films that have sharks fighting octopi, a film with a shark crossed with an octopus ("Sharktopus")... By comparison, "Raging Sharks" is bland and just one more on the heap. You can make a hundred slashers, each unique, but there are only so many ways to have a shark attack and it has been milked to death.

I am not going to lie... I spent more time listening to this film than watching it. I just could find nothing to hold my interest in it. Nothing. I am sure those involved with the production put their best effort in, but starting with a lackluster concept can only get you so many good results.

The cover of the film proudly announces that Corin Nemec is in it. And that is true. But if your first reaction is wondering who Nemec is, you are not alone. It is bad enough trying to carry a film with pop star Tiffany or Lorenzo Lamas, but if your star is Corin Nemec, why even hire actors we have vaguely known at all? Do not watch this film, please. I own it ass a part of Echo Bridge's Horror Four Pack. I have now watched half of the films, and they are both garbage. The next two are about werewolves... I want to believe they cannot possibly be worse.
