Critic Reviews for Deep Blue Sea
If you like big summer action flicks with plenty of bite, check this one out. Then go out for a big sushi dinner. It'll make you feel better.
Scary, absurd, inessential.
The characters are sufficiently naive to get picked off one by one, but their ignorance doesn't extend to the genre conventions governing their behavior, making for some shockingly funny moments.
Deep Blue Sea, a sort of cross between Aliens (without the thrills) and The Poseidon Adventure (without the camp compensations), doesn't deliver the killer-shark-versus-A-list-character-actor thrills you crave.
This highly unlikely story about genetically enhanced sharks that terrorize the scientists who created them is one summer movie that delivers exactly what it promises: nonstop popcorn thrills.March 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Deep Blue Sea
Sep 06, 2018There's quite a cast assembled for Deep Blue Sea, not what we've come to expect from the Asuylum-soiled genre of shark movies in this day and age. It's not a fantastic movie, but it proves more watchable that 90% of its company.Gimly M Super Reviewer
Jun 12, 2017This is one of my favorite bad movies. It's full of action and ridiculous situations to delicious to ignore. Speaking of ridiculousness -- that Samuel L. Jackson death scene has got to be my favorite death on film of all time!Christian C Super Reviewer
Jul 15, 2014If you take a ludicrous plot involving super smart sharks, an impossible setting aping Sealab 2021, and improbable casting pitting LL Cool J, a failed Punisher, and the future Nick Fury against a CGI Dino-fish, you know you've just stepped in Deep Blue something. Just because this muddled undersea non-thriller winks at the audience as if to say "Hey, we're going for a B-Movie feel" doesn't make this Z-Grade pill go down any easier. "Beneath it's glassy surface...a world of gliding monsters." And THEN Michael Rappaport shows up. Chewing more scenery than Sterling Hayden on a bender, he and the rest of the cast go for broke, using histrionics to drown out the inevitable Rifftrax quipping that was sure to follow. Sure, it puts forth a phony baloney backstory about using shark brains to find an Alzheimer's cure, but the only ones who will want to perpetually forget this moment are moviegoers. In this R-rated thriller, a scientific crew (Jane, Burrows, Samuel L. Jackson, LL Cool J) on an isolated research facility become the bait as three intelligent sharks fight back. "What you've done is knocked us down the goddamn food chain." Yep, this line gets delivered by Jane...with some deathly serious rage-tinged vigor, it must be said. Die Hard 2 and Cliffhanger director Renny Harlin is capable of crafting over-the-top thrills and, truthfully, Deep Blue Sea boasts a few. Here, however, everything - from the lines spoken to the bodies eaten - gets over-the-top treatment. Only 2 of the cast make it out of this Grindhouse thriller wannabe (think: locked Jaws) alive, but no one truly gets away without some psychological damage...audiences mostly. Bottom line: Shark WeakJeff B Super Reviewer
Jan 06, 2012First of all, why do they all have chin dimples??? Deep Blue Sea has some interesting ideas and intense moments that proves to be a better blockbuster. The script was bad and the CGI wasn't good enough but the acting and unpredictable deaths helped quite a lot. It's brainless but it is enjoyable.Sylvester K Super Reviewer
