Deep Blue Sea Reviews

June 18, 2002
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.

A lame Jaws wannabe!

A nail-biting rollercoaster ride of thrills and adrenaline.
January 1, 2000

This is one of those ridiculous movies in which people stand around mouthing cliches and weak jokes as they await the next attack.
January 1, 2000
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.

OK, I understand how gene therapy made the sharks smarter, but what made the scientists so stupid?
January 1, 2000
An entertainingly trashy and derivative carnivore spectacular!

Dumb, laughable.
January 1, 2000
Harlin delivers all the thrills, explosive action and sheer gore that audiences have come to expect!
January 1, 2000
Deep Blue Sea is an enjoyable little B-movie, mean and gory and single-minded in its pursuit of cheap thrills.
January 1, 2000
Director Renny Harlin uses sound well and moves that camera around with lean, mean, visceral clout.
January 1, 2000
A big, dumb action movie done the right way, with decent characters, something resembling a point and monsters you can root for.
January 1, 2000
Renny Harlin's pretty good when things happen fast and not much good when characters talk slow - or at all.
January 1, 2000
A neat package of terror, sharks and special effects!

January 1, 2000
Deep Blue Sea is an example of how expert action filmmaking and up-to-the-minute visual effects can transcend a workmanlike script and bring excitement to conventional genre material.
January 1, 2000
A gross, flagrant, in-broad-daylight violation of the Law of Billing.
January 1, 2000
A taut, exciting thriller that takes movie-goers and characters deep under water and leaves them gasping for breath.

Finally, a trashy summer movie that lives up to its billing!
