Dark Tide Reviews
I've gotten used to that almost all shark movies are really awful but this one was surprisingly good. The sharks didn't look like they were CGI from the 90's and plot was far better than in your average-shark-film.
(2012) Dark Tide
Halle Berry stars as Katie for as a result of some trauma regarding a former friend being ate up a by some sharks she now resorts to after many months the same work but not shark tours anymore, but other sea mammel tours. Meanwhile, her ex Jeff(Olivier Martinez) makes attempts to reconcile his relationship with her. Viewers would have to tolerate many pointless bickering between Berry and Matinez.
1 out of 4 stars
That score is for Berry looking so good and the polished look of the film. How are you going to make a PG-13 shark movie?
Dark Tide suffers from a lengthier running time than actually necessary, a sleep-walking appearance by Martinez and a low-budget (the latter is kind if debatable as it adds to a surprising sense of realism). It has its merits. The underwater shots are brilliant and look and feel real. The characters are decent enough with veteran Ralph Brown being the best of the bunch as the super annoying millionaire Brady and the climax is agreeably tensed. The critics hated it but personally i have watched much much worse.
