A handsome transfer onto Blu Ray - and it has to be said - you notice it straight away too. But I must emphasize that 'DBS' looked great anyway for the vast majority of the time on my trusty old DVD. It's just that on BR you do notice the clarity far more.
And the audio...wow! It's huge. A packed 5.1 Soundtrack that is much improved over the DVD delivers a mighty surround-sound punch - especially when all hell breaks loose in the corridors of the flooding marine facility (which is often).
But the truth is that you'll be enjoying yourself too much to be looking out for any print difference. "Deep Blue Sea" is a hugely entertaining watch and a very satisfying thriller into the bargain. It mixes great set pieces with characters you route for - and even supplies its genetically modified toothsome frights with genuinely funny moments too. So when the gorgeous Saffron Burrows gets into the water at the end of the chase to lure Mister Big Nasty People-Munching Shark to her side for a chit-chat (dialogue above) - you'll be biting your nails to beat the band...and cancelling that snorkelling holiday...
To sum up - if you're a fan of "Deep Blue Sea" - then the Blu Ray of Renny Harlin's sharks-with-brains caper is definitely worth the upgrade. And even if you're coming to it for the first time, then you're in for a bit of a treat.
Reasonably priced and better than a slap across the kisser with a wet mackerel - treat yourself to this watery wonder film-lovers.
And stop feeding your goldfish spinach...ask Samuel L. Jackson...
