Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

When a shark accidentally clobbers himself, a small fish named Oscar (voiced by Will Smith, I, Robot) just happens to be around, prompting everyone to believe that he killed the shark himself. This lie soon makes Oscar a celebrity, worshipped by the general mass of fish, wooed by a glittering golddigger (Angelina Jolie, Girl, Interrupted), missed by his best friend (Renee Zellweger, Cold Mountain)--and hunted by the godfather of great whites (Robert De Niro, Goodfellas). Can a vegetarian shark named Lenny (Jack Black, School of Rock) get Oscar out of this mess? The formulaic story of Shark Tale never reaches the giddy heights of Pixar's output (Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., Toy Story) or the freewheeling comedy of Shrek, but it's capably told and impeccably animated--the sheer technical skill is stunning. Kids won't get the mobster jokes or the other pop-culture references, but they'll enjoy it nonetheless. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars Less than the sum of its parts 15 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
Shark Tale ought to be a sure-fire smash hit. All the important elements seem to be present: a great cast to provide the voices, fantastic animation (sometimes the similarity of the animated characters to the human providing the voice are spooky) a decent story set in a genre rich with opportunities for parody and pastiche.
My son (4) loved it and I enjoyed it but sadly, there is something missing. Yes, it is an enjoyable romp but it lacks the soul of the very best animated work: Shrek, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles (in fact all of the Pixar films). They seem to have been so impressed with the A-list cast and the animation trickery that they forgot that it is the strength of the story that creates an enduring classic. A further problem is that the jokes (aimed at adults) seem to have been tacked on rather than being integrated into the story - sometimes it feels like there a two films here rather than one film working on multiple levels (as the best films do).
This film dazzles but nothing more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a second bite 9 Sep 2006
By MartynM
Format:DVD
When I took my children then 7 and 10 to see this neither they nor I were particularly impressed and it had considerably less impact than many other films of similar genre probably due to the rather thin plot line

However on revisiting the DVD it was infinitely better and the characters'nuances/one liners could be appreciated far more eg the Rastafarian jellyfish. I suspect that given the success of similar films,immediate expectations are always high and disappointment is often inevitable. This film is definitely worth revisiting

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous ! 8 Jan 2012
By Lemmi
Format:DVD
I just love it.
Got This one about four years ago.
I must say I can't bear my kids watch it without me.
The Story is so funny, even for adults.
I don't mean that they lewd or anything like that, but children might not get the humour of references to "the Titanic" or "The Godfather" - those are for us - the story is so rich in detail, as is the picture that every age and gender will be entertained.
The characters are well developed.
Animation is state of the art as of 2004.
Sound is fabulous. Top voices and soundtrack.
You'll love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!! 3 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
My son loves this movie, my niece lives in the flat down stairs and has it and my son had it on practical perminant loan, every time my neices wanted to watch it she had to come and beg for her own DVD. since I hve brought him his own copy, we have watched it at least 20 times, he's carried it with him for weekends away with his grandparents and has the soft toys to go with it. perfect!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars a good laugh 19 Feb 2005
Format:DVD
I like all different kinds of films ranging from monster to lord of the rings to nightmare on elm street but it was really nice to just put a film like shark tale on and laugh along without having to think to much about it, the 2 rasta jellyfish were my favorite characters but the veggie shark [lenny] and the main man Oscar were also amusing to watch. this isn't groundbreaking stuff but i really enjoyed watching it.
a good film for adults and children alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars I had a whale of a time! 21 Oct 2007
By DVD Fan
Format:DVD
I was worried this might be aimed more at the very young than some recent animation films but I can say this has something for everyone, no matter their age! With an all star voice cast that includes Will Smith, Robert De Niro, Angelina Jolie amongst many other well known actors, there is plenty of talent to be heard. It's very good how they manage to include characteristics of the actors in their animated characters. Oscar is clearly Will Smith just by looking at the face!The animation is great, with strong bright colours and plenty of detail. The sound track is very strong to with Chrisitina Aguilera's Car Wash the main theme song.
For the youngsters there are plenty of funny scenes, and characters. For the older generation their are some great in jokes as De Niro's Great White Shark has a Godfather like role! If you liked Finding Nemo, Flushed Away, Toy Story you will have a Whale of a time here to! The disc also has plenty of little extras and features to keep you busy as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shark Tale 8 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Although this is a cartoon movie, it suggests it is for children, however, it is most definatly for all ages. I really enjoyed the humour of this film. Will Smith & Robert De Niro as the main characters was an excellent choice for voice overs for their respective characters. Great Film, Enjoy!!!
