Solid and highly enjoyable shark effort

Preparing for an annual tradition, a group of locals at a fishing competition on the Mississippi River find that the whole affair has been invaded by a species of man-eating sharks and must find a way of getting the rest of the fishermen off the river and stop the sharks.

There was a lot to really like in this one. One of the film's positive points is the fact that there's plenty of solid lead-up throughout here to get the main point of the film going. With the exploits of the fishing competition carrying on with all the fine build-up here of the big attacks that provide all the lead-in to the infestation, from the first fisherman attack out on the marina and the ensuing ambush on the deputy trying to clean up the crime scene, the confrontation on the main section of the river where they produce the creature for the masses and the sequence where the creatures arrive to interrupt their plan to stop them by launching the out-of-water attack on the locals. With these scenes all coming to point out the rather fun concept of the creatures invading the fishing competition with the disbelieving locals, there's a lot to like with the idea of this one setting up a race to warn people against the attacking creatures while they work their way down in several shorter attack scenes. Given that these attacks are pretty much continuous for the most part as it shows them grabbing the fishermen off the river or jumping out of the water to grab people, that allows this one to really give this the kind of frantic pace that really appeals to the cheesy nature of the storyline. That even continues on into the rather fun finale where their plan to rid the sharks is initially foiled through sheer ineptitude rather than anything to do with the film itself even though that carries the action rather nicely and sets up some rather fun moments here. Alongside the big body count that produces some solid CGI gore, these here make for quite a lot to like in the face of the few minor flaws. The film's biggest issue is the rather problematic reasoning why the mayor continues the fishing competition as long as he does even in the face of the mounting evidence against it. There's obviously sharks in the water and have already eaten several by the time this one gets going, but the fact that he keeps it going for ludicrous reasoning is simply continuing a genre standby more than anything else and it just makes no sense why it would be featured. The continual ineptitude displayed to carry on the film makes no sense either and really does serve the film no reason for existing longer than it really should. The CGI is also a problem, but overall there's a lot to like here.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence and Language.
