In the taut thriller The Shallows, when Nancy (Blake Lively) is surfing on a secluded beach, she finds herself on the feeding ground of a great white shark. Though she is stranded only 200 yards from shore, survival proves to be the ultimate test of wills, requiring all of Nancy's ingenuity, resourcefulness, and fortitude.Written by

Blake Lively's hair stylist, Rod Ortega, had to get into the tank to do Blake's hair, Blake recalls: "He basically spent 30 days in the tank with me-like in the water the entire time he was doing my hair from the water he was like a fish." See more »
Nancy has to get off the rock before the tide covers it. Tides flood and ebb at a speed represented by a sine wave. In other words. the tide turns very slowly, speeds up and slows to a crawl again before the cycle repeats, The film counts down the submerging of the still nicely exposed rock from full tide minus 20 mins or so. In fact the tide would pretty much be at its full height with 20 mins to go. Also, even in gun laden Mexico, hazard marking buoys would not have flare guns concealed in boxes for no apparent reason and the buoy would be a different colour since it didn't seem to be marking any channel, See more »

Although Blake Lively looks amazing in her bikini. There were too many body shots of her during the entire movie. I am not a prude by all means, but how many butt shots do we need to see to get the idea? With so few characters it gets boring with her moaning and grunting during the whole movie. It was like the movie with Robert Redford where he was the only person in the movie and all he did was moan and grunt, that also was a horrible movie in my opinion. It starts out really slow and there are several suspenseful moments, overall it was just dumb. It has not comparison to the 1st jaws movie. I honestly couldn't wait till it was over. A bit ridiculous if you ask me. Her performance in Age of Adeline was awesome.
