Insulting to our intelligence

I never saw such an awful movie. A shark that hangs out and eats people all day?A buoy that has prob been out there for years, and all of a sudden this shark comes along and tears it up? Really? This chick's annoying dialogue,combined with whatever the hell it was she did at the end... I am SO glad I didn't pay to see this movie.What a complete waste of time. Who wrote this crap? When will there ever be a good movie to look forward to? What did this cost to make, 5 bucks? Sigh... I really believed movies would be better made over time with all the graphics they can use and all the editing,and sophisticated software these days. I guess I was mistaken.This movie is nothing but filler until a real movie comes along.If you liked it, then I don't know what to tell you. But I just wasted an hour of my life on something that was ridiculous.
