Renny Harlin's first feature since The Long Kiss Goodnight reinvents the rampaging shark movie for the digital age. Echoing Alien and Deep Rising, a typically motley crew is trapped and terrorised in a remote ocean research station incapacitated by storms. Saffron Burrows' scientist has devised a means of using shark brain-tissue to fight Alzheimer's Disease, but it has the unfortunate side effect of increasing by fivefold the intelligence of the station's three test sharks. Once the sharks escape captivity, their captors become prey and Burrows, along with Thomas Jane's diver and corporate sponsor Samuel L. Jackson, are pursued through the station's maze of corridors. LL Cool J also appears as the most unlikely action-movie chef since Steven Seagal in Under Siege, chanting Biblical passages to his pet parrot and choosing the perfect omelette recipe as his message for posterity.

As the bizarre premise indicates, this is not a film for those seeking great acting or rich narrative complexities, but it does deliver action and effects in abundance, particularly with the state-of-the-art computer-generated sharks themselves. While they'll never attain the iconic status of Bruce in Steven Spielberg's Jaws (still the granddaddy of all screen sharks), Harlin's swift predators are clever enough to open doors and operate an oven. As the water level rises, Burrows indulges in some Sigourney Weaver-in-Alien-style disrobing, there is one of the great surprise-death scenes, shocking and funny in equal measure, and all concerned keep their tongues firmly in cheek. This DVD version also features commentaries from Harlin and Jackson, deleted scenes, a "making of" feature and a documentary on sharks. --Steve Napleton

4.0 out of 5 stars "...Come To Mama!" 5 Aug 2011
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! 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...

4.0 out of 5 stars A good transfer of an older action classic 13 Sep 2010
If you are a fan of this film, then the blu ray disc is a worthwhile upgrade. The picture quality is much improved over the DVD and many scenes are super clear. The audio quality is also a big improvement with a robust DTS MA 5:1 soundtrack that excels in all the right places and offers clean, well balanced dialogue.
The great thing about the DBS is it doesn't take itself too seriously and there are a few moments for laughter between the awesome action.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disengage brain, disregard science, enjoy action 14 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What you have here ia an above-average action movie with some cool scenes and some atypical characters from across the actiuon and horror genres.

Samuel L Jacksons presence is (as always) a bonus and the acting of LL Cool J is suprisingly good and you can see him progressing his acting skills that would eventually give him a lead role in NCIS Los Angeles. Saffron Burrows is on auto-pilot and Thomas Jane puts himself forward for more films that require more action than actual acting. Having said that, in this type of film, acting is not exactly an essential part of the film-making process.

The science in this is not entirely unbelievable, and is, for the most part, given in snippets through the first half of the film and not overplayed. There are some notable scenes, specifically in the kitchen with the chef and the parrot, and whilst there are no big twists that will baffle you, the end is not entirely as expected.

So if you just want to watch an action movie with sharks, Sameuel L Jackson and some decent effects, sit back, disengage brain and cheer for the bird.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Blu Ray. Brilliant Film 29 Aug 2012
Deep Blue Sea on Blu Ray. Well, the first thing is, has it really been 12-13 years since this was first released? Wow! Time does fly. I remember when this first came out - I was kind of Shark mad, thanks to a childhood friend whom is now my best friend, and this film was just 'ours'; we loved it and (I) still do... not so sure about him anymore...

Anyhow, I shall talk about the Blu Ray transfer.

Picture: 9.5/10. The picture is a real upgrade over the DVD counterpart and the best thing is that you can notice this right away. Everything just looks super clear and pure, crisp gorgeous. Honestly, the picture quality of the transfer really surpassed my expectations. Everything, whether it be backgrounds, characters' faces, explosions or underwater footage, it's all just wonderfully upgraded now on the Blu Ray. Well worth the money and, in turn, the upgrade.

Audio: 7-8/10. The audio, in my view, is slightly questionable, especially in the region of character dialogue. In some scenes, it is a little difficult to hear what characters are saying. However, once the action really gets going, the audio then improves greatly so, overall, it isn't a big problem.

To conclude, I picked this up just yesterday (at the time of writing) for a pretty good, cheap price and I was amazed at the value of this for my money. As I mentioned above, the picture quality really surpassed my expectations, making Deep Blue Sea a wonderful addition to my growing Blu Ray collection. So, without further ado, add it to yours!

Thanks for reading this review. I hope it helps.

4.0 out of 5 stars The taking of Samuel L !! 21 Sep 2010
Big improvement over the DVD but what is then clear is how clunky the special effects and CGI is. Sure it's 11 years old now and CGI wasn't as advanced as it is now but high def really brings that home. Never mind, that aside it's great fun and doesn't take itself seriously at all and at times will have you squirming in your seat when people are taken by the sharks. Just put your brain in idle, sit back and enjoy!
