    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 »

    A pretty decent Jaws wannabe. Some OK performances from Samuel L. Jackson & LL Cool J. Overall: An entertaining popcorn horror, nothing special but OK if you don't take it too seriously and enjoy it for what it is. Full Review »
