Goofs

As they chat awaiting rescue, Kate asks Lisa "the other night at the hotel, what did you mean when you said that your relationship was the only thing you were good at?" Yet the line Lisa actually spoke when she admitted her boyfriend had dumped her was to call the relationship "the one good thing in my life." Of course, Kate's query in the cage may not have been meant to recall a line actually spoken in the film, but typically a reference like this is meant to be "bookended," addressing something viewers have seen so they understand the reference. The closeness though suggests that Mandy Moore accidentally altered her line, and the director didn't notice or think it mattered, so left the shot in. See more »

Pretty solid!
29 July 2016 | by theshadowrunnerSee all my reviews

For a scary shark flick I found it totally worked. Of course the intro, party scene & boys are what you'd expect for this genre, and had me wondering if I'd make it to the end due to all the cliché.

But it did take off from there nicely, had some genuine holy f*ck moments, a good pacing and had me wondering all the way if the girls would make it to the end...

The camera work was great and the sharks well done (a bit too aggressive for total realism, but hey). The ending was also original, for once!

Compared to The Shallows, I'd say it's equally solid in terms of entertainment value and getting the viewer hooked until the end.

Overall a solid 7 in my book.
