    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

    This review contains spoilers. 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. Collapse

    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.

  1. Even overlooking the fundamental inanity of the movie, one is left to contend with some offensive racial stereotyping.

    Not everything in the film happens according to the traditional, overly familiar blueprint.

    Powered by exceptional displays of physical filmmaking, Deep Blue Sea is pulled back to shore by the usual suspects -- weak plotting and weaker dialogue.
