Goofs

The characters are worried about live electrical wires touching the water, yet to turn it off they flip a switch already underwater. This would mean that the water is already conducting electricity in the first place. See more »

Quotes

Heather: Do you see it anywhere?
Kyle: [sarcastically] Yeah, I see it, but I'm keeping it a secret from you because I want you to be surprised!
Heather: Oh, thank you for your thoughtfulness, Kyle. Really, it's always what I wanted in a boyfriend.
[the shark swims past the rear end of the car]
Heather: Oh! I can't handle this much longer. It may seem surprising, but I'm not equipped to deal with this kind of situation.
Heather: [puts her dog in the back seat] Here, Bulli, you need some space.

More than just flesh...
14 September 2012 | by BreakawayDailySee all my reviews

Some shark movies are laughable, cheesy, and way too far fetched (Sharktopus). Some shark movies and horror movies in general can just be unbelievably bad. This Australian film was a pleasant surprise. There wasn't scantily clad girls walking around topless (Piranha) or cheap thrills. This had some genuine pillow clenches, it had some unpredictability, great acting, and had a location I had not seen before in a shark movie, Australia. Most importantly it had characters I actually cared about! There is more to this shark flick than just sharp teeth and flesh. Dig your teeth into this film if you are a thriller, horror, shark movie fan.
