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]
