Movie Reviews

I didn't know Great Whites could do that!!!

"If you love watching shark videos like I do then you simply HAVE to see this. 1 ton sharks leaping clean out of the water to chase seals. It's an awsome video to watch. There's even a scene where a shark is about to fly out of the water chasing a seal but slams into the side of the scientists' boat.I had no idea this occured until I was surfing the web earlier this year and came across pictures of Great Whites breeching. Jaws discouraged people from swimming, this might discourage you from boating!"

"I am so glad I purchased this DVD! I have watched it several times and I am always impressed with the prospect of 1 ton Great Whites hurling themselves out of the water in an effort to catch a their prey. Alot of the images showen in this video have never before been filmed. Obviously the airobatics of the sharks as well as a great white feeding friendsy with a whale as the main course. Simply amazing to watch, and having seen hundreds of videos about sharks and Great Whites specifically, I can say that this has been the most informative documentary I have watched on the subject!"

"First of all I have to admit that my interest in Great White Sharks was solely triggered by the movie Jaws. On the negative side, this classic film kept me out of the waters for some time, but on the positive side it led me to read as many books as I can get my hands on, and watch every documentary on TV, fascinated by this wonderful, still largely mysterious and misunderstood fish.
What I learned thoughout the years was very compelling,
this survivor of the dinosaur age is not the brainless killing machine Jaws portrayed it to be in a sensational and not totally accurate way, but a much more sophisticated animal than previously thought.
But not the dozens of books I read,nor the numerous documentaries I watched prepared me for what I saw in Air Jaws, the best documentary on Great Whites ever done!
I watched in sheer disbelief, fear and fascination as this giant 6-8 foot fish with a large toothy grin 'breached' the waters off Seal Island in South Africa( in an area appropriately named the 'Kill Zone') all of it, from snout to tail and pounced on a very unlucky seal! Over and over again, the Great White literaly 'flew' out of the waters to get at its doomed victim, and each time I was totally transfixed!!
There is another very chilling scene where one of the researchers/scientists jumps on the floating carcass of a whale in the middle of very murky waters, while about 6 or 7 Great Whites are in a crazed feeding frenzy!! This was the stuff of any horror or thriller movie you could wish to enjoy!
If, like me, you are interested in this beautiful fish, or you want to watch a documentary that has as much excitement and thrills as any film, then this DVD is a must buy, and I am sure you will,like me, be totally captivated by the sheer power, and mystery of the Great White Shark..A documentary that will have your heart pounding without John Williams's score..nothing short of a great achievement!!"
Jaw-Dropping Footage! Literally...

"You can teach a dog to jump through a hoop, but what these sharks do is pure survival instinct. It's well worth any shark lovers time to watch these two documentaries back-to-back so as to gain an appreciation for the evolutionary science that has been employeed to capture these scenes. The first movie establishes that this not only occurs, but on a very frequent basis in South Africa. The second movie expands on this by taking what they know of this extraordinary feeding habit and testing it in California and Australia, where breeching is far less common. The results are a greater understanding of this mysterious sharks true feeding habits. Most people are only aware of sharks breeching water from the fake photo that surfaced about a year or two ago, with the great white appearing to attack a navy seal being hoisted back into a helicopter. Watch this film and you will see that the truth is far more amazing than the fictious myths."
