Also, please re-watch Jaws before saying it's special effects were better than films like BAIT. They weren't. Bruce was a plastic shark who kept sinking and looked like a rubber bath-toy at the end. What Spielberg did so effectively was craft a suspenseful film out of the problems he was having.
Now BAIT is never going to be thought of as highly, but it IS a very entertaining film with some great set pieces and some pretty decent effects. The actors fit nicely into their, predominantly cliché, roles and all perform adequately. The director even manages to create some decent suspense.
Deep Blue Sea is the only 'recent' shark film I can think of that was a success (albeit with a totally barmy plot!). I watched Shark Night and enjoyed it. I've also sat through the abysmal 'Mega Shark vs...." and 'Sharktopus' films.
Go into BAIT with an open mind and wanting to be entertained for 90 minutes and you're sure to have a good time. Go in expecting a high-budget blockbuster with amazing special effects and you will be disappointed. Not every film has to be an Oscar winner or another Jaws, Rocky or Lord of the Rings. Film is meant to be enjoyed - maybe people should try that, instead of perfecting their armchair critic skills.
Just a thought.
In `Bait' we see just what happens if you let Great White sharks into your local hypermarket. It doesn't end well for anyone concerned. Great White sharks are less inclined to use clubcards and queue nicely at Customer Services departments while trying to exchange a faulty toaster; instead they tend to eat anyone who gets in their path.
Bait follows a long line of so-so B-movies, all with sharks as the main threat. However, whereas most of them are pretty forgettable, this one is actually pretty watchable. You'll notice I said `watchable' not good. Sadly, the special effects are pretty awful (CGI sharks just don't cut it) and even some of the acting is pretty wooden.
However, that said, it's a fun - if incredibly silly - ride. If you think `sharks in a supermarket' sounds like a good film, then you're probably the sort of person who can appreciate a daft little B-movie like this. But if you think it sounds totally ludicrous, then you're probably best bending a selection of wire shopping baskets all around your body in an attempt to put as much distance between you and the film as possible (seriously, that's what someone tries in Bait).
Personally, I loved Bait. It was silly, cheesy, fun and totally stupid. A bit like me (I like to think, anyway). I can't wait for the sequel (yes, there's one on its way, if you believe the online rumour mill). I'm hoping this time we'll have either `sharks in school' or `sharks in an old people's home.' Classic. I should write those ideas down and copyright them before they're stolen!
This is an Australian film, and I recognise several of the cast from Australian soaps. It's pretty low budget, but given that the bulk of the film takes place in a confined space this doesn't affect the quality of production.
It was nice to see in 3D - as this did add to the effects.
Overall, this isn't a new shark epic like 'Jaws'. But it is good fun, and worth a watch.
So when I saw this one advertised I didn't come into it with the highest of hopes.
After the first 5 minutes, those hopes were confirmed when I thought "Great, another low budget shark film with really bab effects"
But I stuck with it and boy am I glad I did. Apart from one or 2 poor CGI effects (no where near as poor as sand sharks though) the effects were actually quite good. There's gore aplenty and lots of tense moments to satisfy even the most demanding of horror fans.
The story is summed up pretty easily, some crooks try to rob a supermarket and during thier heist, a Tsunami hits the town and floods the place. As people try to climb to safety on top of what objects they can reach, it becomes clear the the giant tidal wave has washed a 12 ft great white shark into the building. And the hunt begins. The film is kind of split into 2 sections, it focuses on the survivors trapped in the supermarket but it also focuses on a seperate set of survivors trapped below in the flooded car park.
This film could have been really awful but it wasn't. It's tense, exciting, full of thrills and really was a treat to watch, especially after viewing some of the garbage shark movies around these days. The acting was good, the characters believable and the action and (Most) of the effects were top notch. The film moves along at an electric pace and it was a really nice surprise.
Sure there's were plenty of cliches and it is predictable as to who is going to die and who will survive but that apart, it's a really cool film. Kudos to the Aussies for embarrassing Hollywood yet again. 8/10
