What these filmmakers did was basically take all of [Jaws's positive] elements and found their polar opposites to put together a film that is one of the most tedious movie-going experiences of recent memory.

With its one-dimensional characters and lack of an engaging plot, Dark Tide will test the patience of even the most patient moviegoer.

Looking more prepared for a walk down a Milan catwalk than the grizzled sea-salt she's supposed to be, Berry provides a dull filling for Stockwell's risible shark sandwich.

Here's hoping Berry had a great time filming this action thriller near Capetown. Because this shark story has no bite.

An eternal morass of dreary conversations, paper-thin character development, and plot convolutions that were old hat by the time Jaws 2 showed up.

This thriller isn't an outright embarrassment, but it nonetheless suffers from wobbly dramatic tension and an overlong running time.

Appears to have everything a filmmaker would need for a little exploitative venture. Leave it to John Stockwell and his unimaginative directorial touch to spoil the potential fun.

A disappointing thriller with some key scenes too dark to decipher. Still, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez make an intriguing couple on screen, and they both look great.

The only palpable emotion from "Dark Tide" is sadness for Berry, treading water in dreary efforts like this.

If you watch closely during John Stockwell's godawful shark-attack thriller, you can see Halle Berry's Oscar sinking ever so slowly into the waters off Cape Town.

Making Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus look like Jaws, it is totally lost at sea.

This toothless shark thriller lacks B-movie fun.

The cast works hard, but not even the climactic tempest can whip up much excitement.

The sharks themselves are the only ones to emerge with credit from this.
