About the Film
In the taut thriller, when Nancy (Blake Lively) is surfing on a secluded beach, she finds herself on the feeding ground of a great white shark. Though she is stranded only 200 yards from shore, survival proves to be the ultimate test of wills, requiring all of Nancy’s ingenuity, resourcefulness, and fortitude.
Ok, so I didn't know what to expect - being an 80s kid and growing up watching the jaws movies.....
This was watchable, but in times very dull with the main star of the movie being a seagull....
It's watchable- but most likely only once!
5.5 / 6 out of 10
What I thought would be a fairly poor quality film is actually one of the highlights of the summer cinema. It's extremely tense, stressful even to watch, but finally there's a good quality film that doesn't need to use bass notes to let you know the shark is approaching; it's always there, it's the fear of being in the water with it that's great about this film. I'm not sure how well it will transfer to the TV screen but if you're afraid of what might be under the waves, the cinema is the place to see this.
A great, trashy slice of B-movie fun. Tightly constructed and very well paced throughout. Excellent for a Friday night!!!
