"There's a 12 foot great white shark in here..."

On paper, Bait 3D sounds like a hoot and a half. After all, the film was co-written and produced by B-movie extraordinaire Russell Mulcahy, and it's about a supermarket which gets flooded during a tsunami and invaded by sharks. Alas, however, this Australian-produced shark thriller is underwhelming and limp. Only occasionally showing ... read more

I've just finished watching it and I have to say I enjoyed it. The only let down was the CG sharks and tsunami. The budget was $20 million so why was the whole thing CG sharks?

“I've just finished watching it and I have to say I enjoyed it. The only let down was the CG sharks and tsunami. The budget was $20 million so why was the whole thing CG sharks? But there is some scenes which use mechanical sharks but I wish they kept it like that throughout.. Kirby's accent was kinda annoying and I think he was trying to do an Australian accent since the whole thing takes place there. But I enjoyed the story and everything else about it.

When I saw the first trailer for this I was looking forward to seeing it because they didn't show any signs of CG sharks, but then came the red band. That showed CG sharks but that didn't really stop me from watching it since it had a lot of celebrities that I knew.

So in the end it wasn't such a bad movie, it was surpr” read more

I think the reson why there were so many survivors is because they are making a sequel, so that's just the set up. Besides, a lot of people survived the tsunami, so they had a lot of people to kill o

Underwhelming and limp

“"There's a 12 foot great white shark in here..."

On paper, Bait 3D sounds like a hoot and a half. After all, the film was co-written and produced by B-movie extraordinaire Russell Mulcahy, and it's about a supermarket which gets flooded during a tsunami and invaded by sharks. Alas, however, this Australian-produced shark thriller is underwhelming and limp. Only occasionally showing signs of goodness, the picture predominantly sits there on the screen, dull and limp, with its amateur-hour presentation yielding pure boredom. It's admittedly a step up from the irredeemable Shark Night 3D since it's at least equipped with R-rated levels of gore and language, but the film nevertheless fails to provide that enlivening sense of B-movie lunacy which was nailed by Piranha 3D a couple of y” read more

"Hay, look it is a shark in a supermarket! So with that premise you aren't expecting Macbeth. I can't really rate the film as I just sort of got bored and left the room... which is saying a lot for a guy with only one leg... so... meh... "

the characters are well developed ( even the blonde retarded one Heather is loveable and she has litle dog, no pls not a dog :(, kill all the humans but a litle small dog ), the chase/death scenes are well donne, realistic as possible.

the end doesnt kill the movie, its really good but way too many survivors, well sharks are not serial killers or one smart killer, makin this the most realistic shark movie i ever seen” read more

Movies I've Seen In 3-D... (58 movies items)

"Viewed in Standard (non-IMAX) Cinema 3-D Wasn't overly impressed at all. It doesn't do much for the film and it doesn't enhance the scares or atmosphere. The 3-D is completely inessential."
