Bait Reviews

January 31, 2019
If you're an aficionado of the killer shark genre, it might be worth checking this one out at the multiplex, if only to cheer on an utterly insane idea that is made to work pretty well.

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.

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

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.

Think this is absolutely a genre film for a specific audience and I think it will deliver to that audience.

Much of Bait is frankly awful, though not unenjoyably so.
September 20, 2012
The film is a throwback to the heyday of the Australian exploitation movie.
September 20, 2012
It succeeds as a gleeful piece of cinematic escapism delivering drum-tight thrills and superb effects, but the characterisation seems sadly as disposable as the film's victims.

I wish I could say that Bait felt like more than a successful genre exercise, but even that's exceeding expectations for a film with such a ludicrous concept.

This likable trash occasionally outsmarts more moneyed Hollywood fish features.

A clever idea effectively executed, Bait 3D sets the shark horror story within the confined space of a supermarket
September 15, 2012
A nice balance between tension, comic relief and the rising body count
