Almost two decades after the underwater carnage in Deep Blue Sea (1999), the shark conservationist, Misty Calhoun, accepts the pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant's invitation to join his team of marine biologists in the Akhelios Complex: a sophisticated research facility in the middle of the ocean. Intent on succeeding where the ambitious Aquatica Project has failed, instead, Durant makes the same mistake, and genetically enhances the brains of his bull shark specimens with a highly experimental formula, transforming them into smarter and deadlier predators. Now, one of them is pregnant. Can the team survive the onslaught of the super-sharks? Written by Nick Riganas

The water levels in the corridors constantly changes. Prior to their escaping from the moon pool area, the water in the corridor is above the doorway and deep enough for a partially-eaten body to float past the window. After the survivors somehow escape from the moon pool level, the survivors flee through the corridors where the water level has fallen to between waist-high and shoulder-high. See more »

User Reviews

Not the worst film that I have seen this year....but that's not saying too much.
18 April 2018 | by jmix66See all my reviews


Michael Beach is a journeyman actor, but even cannot save this POS. Let's review:

1) A shark scientist who looks like a stripper (Or the director/producer's girlfriend) 2) Assorted people around to get eaten by sharks. 3) A billionaire who travels alone 4) A billionaire who apparently has only a single attorney 5) Zodiac boats used for traveling to locations way offshore 6) A shark trainer who doesn't seem to understand sharks. 7) A shark scientist who's also a pain in the a*s whiner 8) Zero suspense 9) Nobody who understands science working at the facility (You know...like physics) 10) Not a single character who you can care about.

Terrible film that would have been better on Syfy as an Asylum project. Avoid,avoid,avoid.
