It’s a shark movie.  If you want a big explanation you should look elsewhere.  Because it’s a shark movie.  It’s about people who are hunted by a shark, just like every other shark movie.  Although, I will say that this one has a lot better acting than most shark movies (aside from Jaws, of course).  The specials were also pretty magnificent.  It never looked superimposed although I’m sure parts were.

For some reason, there’s a large portion of people that either didn’t understand or didn’t like the ending.  To that I say, phooey.  It was a realistic ending.  Really realistic.  And if you don’t understand it, you may need help tying your shoes, too.

We both recommend this one.  It was an entertaining movie.

Our score: 64/100.
