With this interesting story i was prepared for the best shark movie(since jaws) but the CGI effects were horrible and it was not scary at all.The good point is the performances from Thomas Jane,Samuel.L Jackson and LL cool J

The only flick anybody can compare this too is Jaws, but come on, that movie was made 30 years ago.

You won't be giving it a standing ovation but you will have a jolly good hour and a half of CGI sharks and Samuel L Jackson.

Very entertaining B-movie. The way the sharks scarf down the cast is gruesomely funny.

This review contains spoilers, click expand 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. Expand

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.

Deep Blue Sea (1999) is a movie directed by Renny Harlin starring
Samuel L. Jackson, LL Cool J and Michael Rapaport. It's a shark based
thriller with a twist that also makes it somewhat a sci-fi movie. It's
impossible to compare with the shark parodies made recently, but it's
also not like the previously released shark classics such as „Jaws".

The whole action happens on a floating facility used as a test lab to
find a cure for Alzheimer's disease. The medicine is being created from
the brain of sharks, which are kept in special cages to prevent them
from breaking out. Which of course happens, it wouldn't be a thriller
if everything went fine throughout the movie. Chaos breaks out in the
facility when a shark attacks an employer and they manage to escape. It
turns out the sharks where genetically mutated to be 5 time smarter
than any other animal. The crew, all by themselves, must survive the
shark attacks, and think of a strategy end this.

Starting from the main „actors" in the movie, the sharks' visual
effects are awful, in my opinion, the robotic shark from „Jaws" looks
much better. They are poorly made and all of the action regarding them
looks entirely fake, with blurry and stiff movements. Which ruins
almost the entire movie (as far as visuals go) because they are the key
element.

The real good actor worth mentioning here is LL Cool J (Preacher) who
is the cook of the facility. He still manages to make a side character
one of the most interesting and comic ones. He is the only reason why
this movie is watchable. Other scenes are either boring with no energy,
predictable or look totally fake

If you wanna watch a shark classic i would much rather recommend „Jaws"
by Steven Spielberg. It's better in all aspects.

This movie is so bad that after viewing it I felt extreme pain.The pit in my stomach is so large I cannot describe it. Please don't watch this. Please. I am currently experiencing thoughts of suicide.
