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

Did You Know?


While pregnant, the bull shark pups will cannibalize in the womb, as a "survival of the fittest and/or smartest" nature tactic. So a female bull shark will typically give birth to about 1 or 2 pups at a time. The film suggests that the genetic altering had changed the pups nature, so instead of cannibalizing, they ate the humans as an alternative "survival of the fittest and/or smartest" tactic, as more than 2 pups were born.

There are several mistakes when Derek and Josh are attacked. When the water came into the room, Derek jumps up onto the top bunk and the water fills the room up to the bottom of the bunk even though Josh is still shown as only being waist deep. After the water rises it doesn't go over the bunk. Later Derek uses the steel framed bunk as a raft. See more »

Has nothing to do with the real deep blue sea movie
8 May 2018 | by Sammy74See all my reviews

Horrible! If they had called it something else, it would not be as bad. Then it would just be another B-movie. But calling it Deep Blue Sea 2, sets expecations high. The original was a great shark movie. This sucks.
