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.

The fins of the sharks never rose high enough out of the water to be able to slice the mooring lines and cast the boat partially adrift. See more »

Horrible and pointless of a shark thriller.
19 April 2018 | by cruise01See all my reviews

Deep Blue Sea 2 (1 out of 5 stars).

Deep Blue Sea 2 is a direct to dvd sequel that should not have been made. The first film was no masterpiece of a thriller. But it did set up a fun concept of scientists working on an underwater laboratory were experiments on sharks made them faster and smarter. Plus the original was better made than this sequel. The action and thrills were well executed. It had LL Cool J and Thomas Jane trying to survive the shark attacks. This sequel fails at everything which is what you can expect for a straight to dvd movie. Cheesy acting, horrible dialogue, terrible direction and logic with the characters. It tried having a similar concept idea like the first movie. Like the main character being a pro at swimming and facing against the sharks. A maniac scientist that is obsessed with the research. And a wise talking side kick to the main character that is cocky about himself knowing best.

The plot follows Dr. Misty (Danielle Savre) who believes sharks are conservative creatures. That they only harm people when they are mistaken. Dr. Misty joins in this top research facility that is below the ocean. Where they are experimenting on sharks to help combat human diseases. Trent (Rob Mayes) an ex military notices that the sharks may be planning to escape.

This film was horrible. From a cheesy opening credits of watching Dr. Misty swimming with sharks looking like it's an opening credits to a 1970s James Bond film. The film is filled with bad performances. The script is filled with bad dialogue. And an annoying performance from Michael Beach who becomes obsessed with his research. And sees random algorithms out of nowhere.

The film also lacks thrills and scares. Seeing these obvious cheesy cgi sharks is bad. Seeing them jump out of a water pool to attack someone was even worse. This may be fitting in the category with the Sharknado films. And the direction is not coherent with the characters making choices. They make terrible decisions. And than decide to follow the corridor that would be an escape route.

Overall, Deep Blue Sea 2 is horrible. It may not be the sequel we were looking for. It is so bad. Acting, direction, and action is just one long bore. I would not recommend the film at all.
