About the Movie
As a result of irrational and unchecked human hunting, the world's shark population has decreased an astonishing 90%. In this true-life adventure, biologist and filmmaker Rob Stewart brings us closer to sharks than ever before. Surviving pirate boat rammings, gunboat chases, mafia espionage and battles with corrupt governments, Stewart risks his life to stop the slaughter of sharks and save our oceans and the very earth itself.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This beautiful and horrifying debut feature by the underwater cameraman Rob Stewart of Toronto characterizes the depletion of the world's shark population as an ecological catastrophe with dire consequences for humanity.
Fresh: This beautiful and urgent eco-doc takes a bite out of the shark mythology made indelible by Jaws.
Rotten: Stewart is his own star, a would-be Speedo model and whoa-dude narrator whose droning reflections get in the way of his stunning underwater cinematography.
Fresh: Sharkwater probably ranks as one of the most frightening shark movies ever -- but sharks are the victims.
Before this movie, I had the view that sharks did nothing but attack humans. This movie completely changed my view. I definitely suggest watching this movie. 100%
This documentary was great and I hope more people see this because it is about time we all started helping out with things in the world besides thinking of our selfs for a change. Rob I cant say how much this movie touched me and I have donated lots of money to stop shark finning. I am a scuba diver and have my license at 14 years old and I have to say this movie is all true, MOST SHARKS ARE GONE. So for the people who are reading this, do something in life that will help our world become a better place. Save the sharks! :)
