This is the second worst film of all time, just behind Highlander: The Source. For starters, whichever Baldwin it is that is in the film is clearly hugely overweight, and you can clearly see his boobs bouncing up and down in all the action scenes. It is particularly painful watching him squeeze into a scubadiving suit.

The shots of the shark are from the ocean, and not downtown Venice; added to this is the fact that the shark doesn't have anything to do with the plot.

I would have given this film two stars if the shark had eaten Stephen Baldwin, but sadly he was too fat.

The geniuses at Nu Image, who brought us 'Shark Attack', then the spectacular 'Shark Attack 2', 'Shark Attack 3: Megalodon' (one of the best films ever!), 'Shark Zone' and then 'Raging Sharks'. Has suprised us with 'Shark in Venice' (or pretty much Shark Attack 6: Hideousness).

I love these awful films. If you have seen all of them, you will feel quite nostalgic watching 'Shark in Venice' because they have used the very same shark footage they have used through all six films. They have made new effects shots, however there aren't that many. Besides the shark we have Stephen Baldwin, who is one of the ugliest men in Hollywood. These two ingredients equal a spectacular mess of a film. Watch out for the repeated shots of Stephen Baldwins face and his rather grouchy girlfriend. Hilarious!

To 'Nu Image' - please make more! I love them.

Wrong on so many levels that it's difficult to know where to start. Baldwin looks like Ricky Gervais and clearly isn't doing his own stunts. In fact, I'm quite convinced that the main actors were never actually IN Venice, at any point of this production. The very best bit is the closing scene (spolier alert) where a remaining Great White is still lurking in the lagoon. Seriously, they have stuck a fin onto a piece of polystyrene, and it just bobs about, ridiculously. My 6 year old daughter didn't stop laughing all the way to bed. Utter, fantastic, rubbish.

Shark in Venice and Sharks in Venice are the same film.

Dr. David Franks (Stephen Baldwin) travels to Venice to hunt for his missing shark bait dad. He find's Italy's Hidden National Treasure (stolen from Muslims) and doesn't want to go after it because there are always man eating sharks in the water and no one knows anything about lowering a shark cage or chumming to lure the sharks to a different location.

The Eighth Crusade was said to be in 1271. It was actually 1270. Also Marco Polo was born in 1254 making him 17 in 1271. He was on his way to Asia and did not take Solomon's treasure to Venice. If you are going to make stuff up, do some research.

As a treasure hunting film it didn't make it as the treasure was discovered early in the film. The shark attacks were murky and generic. Can be missed.

Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

If you buy this film you will either love it or hate it - if you like sharks and shark films it will make no difference to you, you'll still either love it or hate it. There is something you can do however to ensure you fall into the 'Love' bunch. Basically, watch it with a few beers, your mates and have a good, long, loud laugh at it all. Take the movie for what it is - one of the worst films ever made - and then just point and laugh at the screen, the story, the effects (I use that word lightly) and of course Steven Baldwin and his acting ( I use that last word lightly too). At this point it might be worth mentioning that Steven is clearly the least gifted of the Baldwin brothers in both the acting and the looks department. He is basically Ricky Gervais. He looks exactly like him and is just as funny - except you'll be laughing at him not with him.

This film is hysterically bad and funny for all the wrong reasons - at one point I'm pretty sure Baldwin had his leg bitten off by a shark - but that seemed to be a 'minor detail' to the film makers, who weren't big on continuity it seems, because in the very next scene it seemed to have miraculously grown back (cue point and laugh moment with your mates).

Baldwin could have been out acted by my garden shed he was so wooden - one highlight must be the ''Look out! He's got a gun'' line, from one of the 'action scenes' - (cue point and laugh moment with your mates). Said action scene was also hysterical and included some awesome stunt work from Baldwin in a fight scene with what seemed to be my grandma's table lamp (cue another point and laugh moment with your mates). I won't go on - you get the idea.

When I picked this movie up in HMV, lets face it - it was the cover that sold it too me...

If you are are looking for either a gruesome action packed shark tale or a travel guide to Venice or just a film to chill to this film delivers on none... I recently became very interested in shark associated films after watching the sharknado trilogy that was everything and more with a star studded cast such as a bad ass Christian slater lookalike the hoff and many more top notch actors... The only consultation for this film was the title says shark however if you are into sharks you will see numerous buggers however nothing is quite like seeing Christian slater cut his way out of a great white after being flung out of a tornado without a single scratch delivering one of his many gripping lines straight to camera... So summed up in 2 words.... No shaknado
