More funny than scary, it often feels like Deep Blue Sea meets The Mist... but what's wrong with that?

Bait is fairly exciting, ingenious, well designed, and is perhaps a clever advertisement for online grocery shopping.

Jaws it ain't.

It is all very silly, and more Corman than Spielberg, but entertaining.

You've seen this movie without even seeing it.

Enormous fun, thanks to pacey direction, strong performances, a number of nicely handled gory bits and a script that pays close attention to the demands of the shark attack genre movie.

Carp all you like at how subtext, plausibility and sense have been sacrificed to this film's high concept, but all the stereoscopic slaughter is irresistibly appealing.

It's not spectacular, but it is good enough to see on the big screen.

It's non-stop bloody fun from start to finish and one that you certainly should invite some friends over to dig on with you... again and again.

...my atheism will be cemented if this earns its money back.

Had director Kimbell Rendall, his 6 screenwriters, and the studio brass focused on creating a good film rather than selling a glossy product, then humiliation would have been avoided.

Bait takes itself way too seriously and there are only a handful of witty one-liners. It leaves us with a flat thriller starring a bunch of characters we couldn't care less about.

Sounds like loads of fun - and it should have been.

To say Bait features flawed logic is an understatement, but what can you expect when a shark floats down the produce section of your local grocer?

Think this is absolutely a genre film for a specific audience and I think it will deliver to that audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Would it have been so hard to find really interesting characters, characters to involve the audience and make us care as to whether or not they'll wind up as fish food?

Bait 3D needs to put aside the forced poignancy and attain full great bad movie status. Or at least let the sharks eat more characters.

Much of Bait is frankly awful, though not unenjoyably so.

The film is a throwback to the heyday of the Australian exploitation movie.

Calling Bait 3D a crap film would be a compliment.
