I like shark movies, the more peril the better, and I took a chance and rented this movie to see how bad or good it was.
I was really surprised, it was quite good. You get to care about the charaters, the villian gets his come-uppance in the end, sorry if that's a plot spoiler, and you really get to worry about whether the hero or heroine might get eaten. After all, there are no stars in this movie, except a deplorably under used Bryan Brown, and with no other names, you can easily be forgiven for thinking that many of the cast are on the menu.
The only down side was that the sharks were underused for most of the start and middle of the film, they are a constant presence, and people do get eaten but no one seems to notice that friends are disappearing. I know it's based on the American Spring Break but come on, surely if your friend is not seen for two days you might show a little concern.
The final scenes are great though, you really feel tempted to press the fast forward button just to check that a charater doesn't get eaten and I certainly felt like screaming at the TV, GET YOUR FEET OUT OF THE WATER!
I must get a life, or better still, just recommend this film if you like a low key but high adrenaline movie, watch this one.
