A very unappreciated Jaws style movie similar to the Meg. A must watch for Jaws fans and fans of Thomas Jane, Samuel Jackson and LL Cool J. They all shine and Jackson lives up to his Pulp Fiction elevated speaking with a surprise that will make you laugh and shock you!

Tremendous Suspense, good acting and directing along with great special effects make this the equal of Jaws and a Damn Entertaining film !
If you like clinging to the edge of your seat or holding your honey tight as the danger increases then this is a Must See Film.

I really liked this movie it wasn't quite like the usual out of control way to big, to smart wildlife movies that barely make a B rating. I think anyone messing with genetics with creatures that out of control would reek havoc on the Earth. Should watch this movie and consider adding a small incindiary devie to blow the critter up from inside if it should choose to attack you.

Just another action movie
Mike London | Oxford, UK | 05/16/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This is a bad action flick. The basic plot is they (scientists) try to cure Alzheimer's and other brain diseases. There is a serum in the shark's brain, but to make adequate amounts, they break some code of ethic (it is named in the movie, but it escapes my memory). Well, in the process of doing so, it makes the sharks smarter. It is a very run of the mill action movie, bringing little invention to the genre. It's a Jaws wannabe. One redeeming factor, however, is it will surprise you on who will live and who will die. During one scene, a character is making a good speech, and then WHAM! Everything JAWS tried, it succeeded. I've heard the sequels are terrible, but I haven't seen them.. But if you hold this against JAWS, this fails terribly. There is no suspense or terror in this movie as in JAWS. It saddens me that Jackson, a fine actor in his own right, was in this movie. He is also another redeeming factor in this movie. The cast does an alright job, bringing the script up a little - but still, a pretty dismal effort."

"This DVD was far better than I had hoped for. The special effects were awesome! After watching this DVD I'm not so sure I want to go in the ocean again.If what you like is to watch a shark tear a person apart, then this one is for you! This has become our all time favorite .The more you watch it the better it gets. This movie will NOT disapoint the the person that likes to sit on the edge of the seat. p.s keep your feet out of the water."
Deep, but not so wide

""Deep Blue Sea" is one of those monster flicks that makes an attempt at being an intelligent man's horror film. The genetically-altered, Alzheimer cure-all mako shark idea was a good one, and a little more unique than most creature films, but in essence this is a man-screws-with-nature-nature-screws-back sort of tale. There are a couple of suspenseful moments, and the makos look great throughout the majority of the film. Other reviewers accuse the acting as being standard and weightless, but remember that this is a creature feature and the first rule of this genre is that the creature is the star. I found nothing terribly wrong about the acting, and much like "Anaconda," this film has a token rapper(LL Cool J) who does a good job. The rest of the cast is fairly standard, but none of their performances are that bad. Samuel L. Jackson gives "Deep Blue Sea" a solid actor, and he seemed to enjoy his time on screen in this film. Thomas Jane is another standout who plays the heroic lead, although little is left for our hero to save. Saffron Burrows does an excellent job as the good-meaning, yet slightly mad scientist who you really want to see get bit by a mako.
Overall, this is an above-average flick. It isn't as cheesy as "Lake Placid," and it doesn't make the sharks quite as smart as the raptors of "Jurassic Park" fame, but it takes parts of both of these films and combines them with a little suspense and terror a la "Jaws" and serves up a fish dinner that just about anyone can enjoy.
Also, notice the nod given to "Jaws" during Jackson's initial landing at Aquatica.(Hint: Check that license plate)"
