Critic Reviews for Deep Blue Sea
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.
You might guess that this movie will feature yelling, at least once, 'Let's get the hell outta here!'
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.
This is one of those ridiculous movies in which people stand around mouthing cliches and weak jokes as they await the next attack.
Audience Reviews for Deep Blue Sea
This 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!
I have to admit this film provided some intense moments and whilst this is sort of Jaws on Steroids, it did of course share the same predictability. Of course the graphics of the Sharks etc were more impressive and so were the actual kills. It did provide a few laughs although I doubt that was the intention. I am usually a fan of Saffron Burrows, but this roles really didn't suit her and let's face it, LL Cool J has to be one of the worst Rapper turned Actors out there. The set becomes repetitive and I found myself wanting them to escape just to see different scenery.
Check out the big brain on Jaws. An unlikely posse of performers (Samuel L. Jackson, Thomas Jane and Saffron Burrows) get down and dirty with some genetically enhanced, super-smart massive sharks in Renny Harlin's hugely enjoyable, visually satisfying, severed-limb-tastic romp of a sci-fi thriller. Plus, there are enough movie references to sink the undersea lab which Deep Blue Sea is set on. The upshot is a romp that never takes itself too seriously, making for a guilty pleasure you can really sink your teeth into.
