An atrocious waste of time, this "Night" is one you'll quickly forget.

Look, here's the short of it: This is pretty dumb movie. Ok it's a very dumb movie.

Unfortunately, you can't even appreciate the movie for jaw-droppingly bad performances. It's just a whole bunch of people who deserved better.

Little more than a brain damaged, irony-free, and curiously toothless attempt to retread the success of last year's surprising summer gorefest, Piranha 3D.

Director David R. Ellis has delivered a heartless, suspense-free 100 minutes of sharks dining out on kids stuck on an island in a Louisiana lake.

A bad taste frenzy, with cameras tied to the bellies of some beasts contained by crooks in a salt water lake.

This limp teens-in-peril fright flick doesn't even deserve to swim in the same bloody waters as Piranha 3D; frankly, there were more genuine jolts in Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer.

You know how bad you're probably thinking this movie will be? It's actually worse.

Of the 350 different species of shark, 46 of them are swimming freely through this Louisiana lake, which I suppose makes sense, since it's made up of salt water. Uh-huh.

...the 3D is almost non-existent. Apparently Hollywood thought they would ass-rape the movie going public one more time before the summer ended and charge an extra three dollars! My advice is to take that money and go rent "Jaws."

Snakes On A Plane at least displayed a commitment to its magnificent ridiculousness. By comparison, Shark Night 3D just gives dumb movies a bad name.

How did a fleet of ferocious finned carnivores wind up in a lake, even one that's salt water?

a full-fledged, bottom-of-the-ninth strikeout, a trashy, stupid, joyless, and overlong thriller

A thoroughly shabby attempt to piggyback on the success of last year's Piranha 3D.

Shark Night 3D sets itself apart from Ellis's other films in its sincere attempt to humanize its heedless pretty young things.

A ho-hum series of kills and lulls so predictable that it doesn't even look like much fun for the sharks; when they open wide, they might as well be yawning.

What's actually here is depressingly unimaginative, artificial (the shark CGI is iffy at best), and occasionally distasteful. Trust me, it's one long night.
