Trivia

The school bus sequence was filmed over several days at the 6th Street bridge, in downtown Los Angeles. While a stunt double was used for certain shots, Ian Ziering did a lot of his own rappelling stunts. See more »

Goofs

(at around 27 mins) During the tunnel scene the cars are stopped for no reason. Then, after driving through the tunnel, Fin looks in the rear view mirror and it shows a flooded area with lots of sharks directly behind the vehicle. This same shot is shown a couple of times. However, when they leave the vehicle there is no water or sharks. See more »

One of the funnest "bad movies" I have ever seen.
12 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Listen--there is a certain kind of spectrum of movies. There are the hugely-budgeted blockbusters, and then the b-movies, which live in their own little world. You cannot watch a b-movie with the same eyes that you do a blockbuster. If you do, and if you are overly critical, you will probably not enjoy it, and Asylum Studios will just laugh at you.

I honestly loved this movie! The difference between this and a lot of b- movies is that this film was decently fast-paced--in a lot of low-budget films, they make a ridiculous monster or something, but barely ever show it, and just have lame dialogue in-between. But in this film, the action never stopped. There were flying sharks munching people at least every ten minutes or so. It was fun, and you could tell the people who made it had fun. For the budget that this movie had, I was very impressed. It was quite a ride!
