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

WETLANDS :

“..Juri's performance makes it impossible to divert your eyes from the screen, no matter how much you might want to, and a brave film that eventually succumbs to convention is still braver than most..”
by David Ehrlich [Film.com]

GOD HELP THE GIRL :

“..the cutesiness will entice/repel viewers in equal measure, but it has a lot of heart, and displays it on its sleeve..”
by Emma Johnston [Total Film]

FRONTERA :

“..Frontera is, on a whole, more interested in situations than characters-Pena, a stoic onscreen presence..”
by Andrew Lapin [The Dissolve]

THE LONGEST WEEK :

“.."The Longest Week" quickly becomes mimicry, losing any emotional pull as it strives to preserve the hospital corners of other, better helmers..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

HEAVENLY SWORD :

“..a pretty predictable and unexciting video..”
by Jeffrey Kauffman [Blu-ray.com]

CANTINFLAS :

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
