Movie Info

Spencer Northcut (Antonio Sabato, Jr.) quite reasonably never forgot the day he witnessed his family being mauled and eventually killed by a prehistoric shark on what was meant to be an innocent boat trip. Obsessed, Spencer builds himself a submarine in hopes of setting out to find and kill the bloodthirsty shark. At first, it looks as if he'll never have the chance--the research group in charge of the sub refuses to let him board his own creation, until they themselves are killed by the same … More

Audience Reviews for Shark Hunter

A film that ends the way events like this probably would. Unfortunately, only a movie this low-budget, could afford to do so. The film has such a dry and lifeless look to it. Mostly because of the almost single setting. Submarine bases aren't that interesting with all their greys and blacks. In terms of effects the darkness helps out a lot. We usually get a silhouetted shark and just a section of its face lit up. This emphasizes the sheer scale of the shark, even if we don't get to appreciate it in all its menace. The movie also started off rather cleverly, with old home movies. This is probably the best way to build emotional connections with such a lackluster cast. It helps that they weren't talking. It's all down hill from there. Hokey dialog, boring and pompous "WE'RE SCIENTISTS DAMNIT!" speeches, emotionless relationships, and sheer boredom all follow. Much better films out there, with its biggest crime being, it just wasn't bad enough.

The expected stupid plot, and the usual emotionless acting from Antonio Sabato Jr. There are many better crafted shark movies out there. It doesn't have a low budget look to it, surprisingly. Cliche's abound.
