  1. Even overlooking the fundamental inanity of the movie, one is left to contend with some offensive racial stereotyping.
  2. So uninvolving as basic storytelling that it quickly becomes boring.

    The disgraceful script is by Duncan Kennedy, Donna Powers, and Wayne Powers. Directed with occasional flashes of nasty wit by Renny Harlin.

    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 »
