The first time i've seen the trailer i thought the movie would be amazing and full of thrilling scenes, unfortunetly i was wrong. The acting in it are mediocre and falls short of satisfaction. Not only that, the storyline not as good as i hoped. Truly bad shark movie.
The plot was okay but the acting was down right awful. I saw the first one on Netflix and I was surprised at how good it was but this mess here was terrible for something that was promoted in theaters. Perhaps they would've gotten better reviews if they skipped the box office and went straight to Redox or Netflix. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!
So I really enjoy these types of movies. And I always go into them knowing well enough that it is fictional, unlikely, and unrealistic. But that's what makes a MOVIE. If you are trying to be a critic and point out all of the flaws and have realistic expectations then you should stick to National Geographic or animal planet.Now for those of you who enjoy movies and have an open mind, I recommend this movie. If you saw the first one then you kind of know the synopsis of what happens. I thought this one was a lot scarier and had more to it to keep you engaged. There were a few jump scenes some were predictable and some were very shocking. There are some parts of the movie that reminded me a lot of first one, like running out of air, sister bonding, and of course the sharks. If you haven't seen the first one it's OK it won't affect this movie at all. I probably wouldn't see it again only because this is one of those movies that is better in theater and it won't be as good a second time knowing what happens. But all in all I'm giving it an eight because it was rather enjoyable, had me on the edge of my seat, and had me rooting for the main character.And the sharks were great, A+ for scary & toothy smiles.
My nephews 9 and 16 loved it. I liked it a lot and would probably watch it again. It's one that is best in a theater like setting like the first one in my opinion. The scares are more effective in a theater setting due to that it does rely on a decent amount of jump scares. But and it's a big but... they are placed well and aren't cheap jumps. You jump for a reason and not just a noise so they're done right and effectively in my opinion. But it has plenty of scary moments and situations that aren't cheap jump scares. You can't call the jumps like you can in other movies and that's what makes it refreshing.For what it is it did an amazing job and you should give it a chance. I think you'll like it. They might be pushing it with another one but this can stand alone as a decent creature feature that isn't boring in the slightest. The only reason it's getting a seven and not an eight is the horribly done word changes. I caught two moments where they changed what they said. I'm assuming for the rating since it was a crap in place of a cuss word and another that I can't remember off the top of my head but it was a cuss word. I wasn't happy with this. I'm tired of over censorship and I think this is one of those cases. A bunch of young girls are gonna cuss it's not surprising. Watch it and you'll most likely enjoy it. That's the only thing I didn't like about it.
This was seriously so intense, the shark scenes are crazy! I spent the whole movie on the edge of my seat. The beginning lead up to get the girls into the shark situation didn't take up too long and was fairly credible. Then the shark shows up and it's utter insanity until the end of the movie. There's a scene with a flashing red light and the sharks are circling, was so suspenseful I could barely breath. Action packed to the very last second. Top notch.
Who funded this movie that should be in jail. Not to mention the writer.
