A shark movie with a delicious B film fun factor,
This review is from: Deep Blue Sea  [DVD] (DVD)
Expecting serious realism and a great story of a shark movie is probably akin to expecting a James Bond film to show a realistic portrait of a spy. Not that this means that either one cannot be fun.
The 'Deep Blue Sea' is - in my opinion - rather a better specimen of the genre. The sharks are supernaturally massive - in line with the story of genetic alteration - and for a change, the real bad ones are not great whites but makos. The story revolves around a group of scientists and their support staff being stuck at their oceanic / shark research station by a storm and then chased down by the other inhabitants - the resident sharks.
The cast is surprisingly famous and while some acting definitely reflects the B movie nature of the film, there is also some, which is quite good.
And then there is the comedy factor, whether with LL Cool J in his role of cook, or with the rousing speech of Samue Jackson - who is the overall boss and a survivor of being stuck in arctic ice in the past.
One also has to commend the CGI, given the age of the movie. Sure, it is not quite up to 2013 scratch but for the time it was made it must have been quite impressive.
So overall a good 'shark movie', with a delicious B film fun factor and without being too cringeworthy; definitely something for a Friday night when you are not looking for cerebreal stimulation but easy relaxation.
