Brent's Review of Bait

A more than halfway decent combo of Deep Blue Sea and The Mist. There's some good performances from at least some of the cast (Julian mcmahon, Phoebe Tonkin, Xavier Samuel, amd Sharni Vinson stand out), and the script stays just believable enough to keep you centered on what's happening onscreen. There is a problem with the ending in that it requires a lot of disbelief suspension and a character trait addition, and there's an absolutely horrible techno cover of mack the Knife playing over the end credits (It's about a killer, not a shark, dumbass), but otherwise it's an all-around good time.
