Bait Reviews

February 2, 2019
What could have been a fun, over-the-top gore-fest becomes a serious movie about love, forgiving and sacrifice. Alas, the script -- what there is of it -- and the actors just can't pull it off.

Jaws it ain't.

You've seen this movie without even seeing it.

...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?

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.

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

There are giggles a plenty to be had, but I suspect they'd be more enjoyable on the couch with some beers and friends where yelling stuff at the screen is encouraged. Bait 3D lacks bite.

In what kind of a sick world does a shark movie allow the majority of its cast to walk away unchomped? That'd be the world of Bait 3D, where almost all genre promises are broken, accents are in a constant state of flux, and everyone is the absolute worst.

It fundamentally frightens that something so bad could exist

[It] has many flaws, the foremost among these is the inability to indicate whether we're supposed to consider the savage behavior brought on by its crises as ambiguous or unassailably good.

Deserves a participation ribbon for its willingness to take an aquatic hunt into an unexpected direction, using recent world woes to inspire a shark tale that's poorly executed yet charmingly absurd.

"Sharks in a Supermarket!" is a pretty silly idea, but there's no reason it has to be this sloppy and stupid.
September 13, 2012
Rendall and screenwriters Russell Mulcahy and John Kim forget that in between bursts of tart, blood-drenched mayhem, there's a saggy, dumb chamber drama that's completely bland and under-seasoned.
