An average movie

Every now and then, they come up with some major ‘Jaws’ rip-off and this flick is basically the last one of those. I remember, when me and my step-son Nick saw the trailer in the theater, I knew right away that Nick would really want to watch it pretty badly. Wisely, I managed to spare the price of the movie tickets and patiently waited until it was broadcasted on TV, for free this time. Even though Nick did enjoy the whole thing, I thought it was pretty lame. I mean, to be honest, I didn’t really like much ‘Piranha 3D’ either but the makers were not some hypocrites and it was at a gory R rated flick from the beginning until the end. Here, they keep showing you some (covered) ass but there is no nudity or sex whatsoever and the goriness was terribly toned down. I mean, if you plan to make a movie in this genre, at least, don’t chicken out. The biggest difference with ‘Jaws’ is that they nowadays can use CGI to create some believable monsters but instead of using it wisely, they created the most preposterous and underwhelming action scenes you can think of. Eventually, I think that my rating is actually pretty generous, I thought it was pretty weak and I don’t think it is worth a look, except maybe if you are die-hard fan of the genre.
