REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

4 of 5

“..it is one hell of a fun time..”
by Mike Gencarelli [Media Mikes]
“..in fairness, there's not much here that's unsuspected or surprising..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
“..delivers enough gore and good-lookers to keep things interesting, and while it is high on concept and low on scripting, as shark attack films go it at least offers the novel notion that most of the kills take place in a supermarket..”
by Mark Adams [Screen International]
“..a shark bloodbath that delivers the gore but could have used sharper teeth and a slyer sense of humor..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a plucky Pomeranian survives a 12-foot great white in the emotional high point of Kimble Rendall's cheerfully grisly shark thriller..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]
Review rate : 3

“..a B-film shark attack movie. But for those who don't need a deep storyline and just want to see people get killed and their blood and body parts coming at you via 3D, then no doubt that you may enjoy this film..”
by [J!-Ent]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
