Movie Info

A treacherous Louisiana river is the setting where divorced couple Sanders (Lou Diamond Philips) and Kelly (Kristy Swanson) forget their differences long enough to search for a new source of energy. The couple is joined -- and later waylaid -- by a pair of crooks named Ice (Coolio) and Jerry (Jaimz Woolvett), who are convinced that a cache of stolen loot rests somewhere at the bottom of the river. Before long, everyone is in danger of being sliced and diced by a rogue freshwater shark. Another of the several million Jaws derivations glutting the cable TV airwaves, Red Water at the very least boasts excellent animatronic special effects -- not to mention a dead-body count that would shame a Rambo or Terminator. The film debuted August 17, 2003, on TBS.

Audience Reviews for Red Water

This is a made for cable TV movie so the production values are not high and there are obvious breaks for where commercials would be. Lou Diamond Phillips is an apt actor and Kristy Swanson looks great. The story is tepid, but there are numerous shark attacks with lots of blood effects. Not great, but not terrible for what it is.

You would think a film with Kristy Swanson, Coolio, and Richie Valens would be decent but nope. Even SyFy could have made a more realistic shark.

Getting to see Kristy Swanson, Lou Diamond Phillips and Coolio fight sharks will only carry a movie so far, and this plot...not so much.
