Was Britain and were Brits really this boring in the '40s and '50s?

Some upscale action-cheese -- plus who doesn't love Cool J? But the movie's exposition and plotting are mega-lame; Kurtzman & Orci probably pray to Deep Blue Sea every morning.

...silly, campy material presented as serious high adventure.

I can't imagine wanting to see Deep Blue Sea again, but as a one-time-only, low-expectation, Sunday-afternoon diversion, it kept me amused.

Harlin, perpetrated, I mean, directed CUTTHROAT ISLAND, but oddly enough, it did not stop studios from giving him big bucks to repeat his mistakes.

LL Cool J and Thomas Jane (are you looking for the new Steve McQueen? HE'S RIGHT HERE) keep the movie rolling.

If science can make sharks super- intelligent, why can't it do the same for screenwriters? ...For a movie about the advancement of knowledge, "Sea" is often flabbergastingly dumb.

Call it silly. Call it obvious -- there's nothing more obvious than a shark attack. But this is one of the few big-fish horror films that still has the power to surprise.

Harlin, in telling a standard tale of morality and conflict, turns in a plotless, empty picture that dissolves into an emotionless videogame.

You might guess that this movie will feature yelling, at least once, 'Let's get the hell outta here!'

A scary film about some of the consequences of messing with Mother Nature.

Despite scene after scene of mayhem, Harlin manages to create and and sustain extremely well-coiled tension.

Una cinta más en la que la forma de contar una historia es suplantada por una gran cantidad de efectos especiales

The thrills are such a rush, however, and the balance of digitized and analog effects is generally so satisfying that pic's sheer dumbness finally becomes part of the fun.

The repeated lifting of material from other films eventually sinks this one into mediocrity.
