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.
Pretty boring, the characters are hallow and the action is mute. Not a lot of shark action. The plot isn't as interesting as one might think, and the whole idea of hunting a prehistoric shark winds up feeling lackluster. Forgettable.
Ill be honest and say I enjoy cheesy shark films. While this is a bad movie, its not so bad that it is unwatchable. The cgi is actually decent compared to some of the other crap I've seen within this genre.
