"I fish these waters, mate. I know what's out there!"

When was the last time you remember seeing a genuinely good shark movie? Steven Spielberg's Jaws from 1975 is likely the most popular choice, and it's perhaps the only good shark film in existence. In subsequent years, a few subpar Jaws sequels entered cinemas along with films like Deep Blue Sea, and then in the noughties we bega... read more

On the beautiful but dangerous waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, ship delivery man Luke and four friends chart a yacht to its new owner. Along the way, their ship is torn open by sharp rocks and begins to sink, leaving the passengers with a terrifying choice: stay on board with slim hope of rescue, or swim twelve miles to the nearest island through shark-infested waters. When they enter th... read more

"A boat containing a group of young people is capsized in the Pacific Ocean and all but one decide the best thing to do is swim towards an island but they didn't count on a hungry Great White Shark stalking them. It is based on a true life tale. Although a movie with a similar plot in Open Water has been released 7 years earlier, I haven't seen it so I can't compare between the two. I did find this movie rather gripping and tense. It's not fast paced or action orientated but the shark attacks are"

“On the beautiful but dangerous waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, ship delivery man Luke and four friends chart a yacht to its new owner. Along the way, their ship is torn open by sharp rocks and begins to sink, leaving the passengers with a terrifying choice: stay on board with slim hope of rescue, or swim twelve miles to the nearest island through shark-infested waters. When they enter the water, an unstoppable, relentless Great White immediately follows their trail for a white-knuckle chase that will fill the waters with blood! From the director of the acclaimed monster hit Black Water comes a pulse-pounding, visually stunning thriller that never lets go until the final, heart-stopping scream!” read more

" Pretty people with accents in bathing suits traveling exotic locations. It's a classic setup, and one in which I've never not found something to enjoy. But of course when the strength of those aspects alone begin to fade, we have the promise of blood-thirsty sharks to rekindle our interest. But... it never quite plays out that way. Though the performances here are actually quite admirably strong, the script and direction lags too far behind to lift this title too far above other entries into t"

"Katsottu: 5.6.2011 Odotuksiin nähden tämä ei ollut ollenkaan hullumpi. Kun odotin jotain jäätävää paskaa, jossa digihai polskuttelee menemään ja popsii koko joukon epäonnisia haaksirikkoutuneita mahaansa. Yllätykseksi tämä tarjosikin varsin realistisen kuvauksen hain armoille joutuvasta ryhmästä. Edes itse hai ei onnistu pilamaan hyytävää tunnelmaa, jonka elokuva saa aikaiseksi. Roolihahmot ovat inhimillisiä ja heihin on helppo samaistua. Samalla heidän tukala tilanteensa on"

Competently-crafted thriller machine

“"I fish these waters, mate. I know what's out there!"

When was the last time you remember seeing a genuinely good shark movie? Steven Spielberg's Jaws from 1975 is likely the most popular choice, and it's perhaps the only good shark film in existence. In subsequent years, a few subpar Jaws sequels entered cinemas along with films like Deep Blue Sea, and then in the noughties we began seeing a glut of awful, low-budget, straight-to-DVD shark features (Shark Attack 3: Megalodon, anybody?). Thank goodness, then, for 2010's The Reef; an incredibly intense Australian thriller from writer-director Andrew Traucki, who was last seen at the helm of the similarly-themed Black Water back in 2007 (a crocodile flick). Traucki has visibly improved his cinematic technique since his 2007 feature” read more
