Really a beautiful movie from a beautiful soul
22 October 2018 | by samriq-29479See all my reviews

Shakwater Extinction is one of the best documentaries where sharks are the victims. Rob, the real life hero who gave his life to save the Sharks for this world and delivers an important message and changes the way you see the oceans. Its underwater photography is breathtaking. Really a Beautiful movie from a beautiful soul. I would also appreciate Rob's parents (Sandy and Brian) and Team Sharkwater who worked tirelessly to complete and release this movie after Rob's death. -Shariq
