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

Steven Seagull's name in real life is Sully. He lives (to this day) in a seagull sanctuary in Australia. Two extra seagulls were used to portray Steven Seagull. According to producer Matti Leshem, she added "They were all good but not nearly as good as him. Peggy was the vocal one, the very squawky bird. Gaviota (which means seagull in Spanish), I think he's almost 30 [as Steven is estimated to be about 15 or 20 years old]. The most challenging thing about Sully as an actor is that seagulls are remarkably clean. They self clean a lot, so the blood on Sully, obviously fake blood, he kept wanting to clean it off, so we had to deal with that." See more »
Sharks are known to have a very fast response action when chasing their prey, when Nancy was pulled down by the chain she would never make it tricking the shark and dodge it to hit the anchor. See more »

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.
