Storyline

Corporate real estate tycoon Hamilton Lux sets his sights on developing the quaint seaside town of Full Moon Bay into a prime getaway for the wealthy, but runs into some unexpected problems. Lifelong fisherman Daniel Wilder owns property exactly where Lux wants to build high-priced condos, and isn't planning to sell. Lux secretly laces the local waters with a toxin deadly to marine life, decimating the fishing industry in an attempt to starve Daniel out. Alas the chemical react differently on the area's sharks, drastically increasing their aggressive tendencies and transforming them into engines of pure destruction moving in coordinated swarms. Without fish to feed on, shark attacks on humans rapidly increase. Lux uses media contacts to paint the attacks as random incidents. Daniel, his marine biologist brother and a concerned E.P.A. agent must expose Lux's plan and rid the area of the chemically-altered sharks before the town's entire population is devoured by hungry sharks.

Swarm of Has Beens
21 September 2008 | by naderw75See all my reviews

Ugh. One lame story. Empty dialog. Actors who can't get movie roles anymore. One exception - what is F Murray Abraham doing in this cast of mediocre actors? He has actual acting talent as opposed to Armand Assante who turns in the same swaggering tough guy persona every time. What is with that walk anyway? It's so embarrassing. And poor Darryl Hannah. Glamour girl no more.

Who read this script and said, "Wow, this is gripping. Let's make a movie!" It makes you wonder what scripts don't get picked. Now that's scary. Before there were so many cable stations, this movie would never get made. A studio wouldn't waste money on a rehashed shark tale and mediocre actors. So thanks Hallmark for lowering the standards.
