    Powered by exceptional displays of physical filmmaking, Deep Blue Sea is pulled back to shore by the usual suspects -- weak plotting and weaker dialogue.
  2. You have a movie in which sharks with triple-digit IQs hunt humans with double-digit IQs. It’s no contest.

    One of those stupid movies that are good to relax with.
  4. 50
    The characters are two-dimensional and the story is intensely formulaic.
  5. 50
    A preposterously silly bit of work, chock-full-o' nuts and rife with the kind of plot holes you could drive a submersible ROV through.
  6. 40
    It's every bit as silly as it sounds, sillier really.
  7. One of those hellishly predictable digital-monster gauntlets that makes you pity the actors.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The plot is ludicrous and the script terrible but if you are happy to be swept along for the ride Deep Blue Sea offers an hour and a half of mindless B-movie fun. Plus Samuel L Jackson gets eaten by a shark about half-way through as well. Full Review »
