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 ... read more

Enjoyable

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 th... read more

"A freak tsunami traps shoppers at a coastal Australian supermarket inside the building. The shoppers have to deal with a deadly and unwanted visitor, which is a 12-foot Great White Shark. This movie turned out to be quite entertaining and not at all as cheesy and stupid as I had initially anticipated it to be. There is a good amount of action and thrills in the movie, which turned out to be a great combination. The movie, despite being predictable, does keep you thrilled and almost at the edge "

" This was really fun to watch. The idea of people getting trapped in a grocery store with a shark seems a bit much, but it gets pulled off. Great production value, a bunch of actors you'll recognize, a cheesy scene here and there. I had a blast, though. This was good fun."

"Haielokuvat ovat nykyajan roskaa. Nykyaika masentaa minua. Olihan tässä hetkensä, mutta ruma kolme-dee ja tehosteet pilasivat tunnelman. Bait on muuten lähempänä Deep Blue Seata kuin mitään muuta haiaiheista filmiä. Hyvä Renny! Suomi! Ja torille!"
