Shark is very interesting
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Despite some low production values, this film was pretty entertaining, especially because it was based on a true story about a killer shark that went up a river. It is shot in Laughlin, Nevada (which is kind of a stretch), but the scenery is beautiful.There are some great attack scenes and realistic shark footage that work well.The acting is pretty good, and overall it is worth seeing. I'd recommend it, especially if you are interested in sharks."
Oh my goodness, is this movie [weak].

"At first glance,it seems this movie was filmed on videotape by a kid taking a high-school film class as an elective. Since I think Zac Reeder, the actual writer/director has already gone through puberty, this movie has no excuse for being this [weak]. This movie has a production value so low it makes the Blair Witch Project look like Titanic. It hard to measure how bad the acting is, because the script itself is so painful. Luckily, the microphone on the video camera fails to pick up much of the dialogue and the stuff you can hear, thanks to echo, sounds like its happening in a gymnasium.Then there are some good inconsistencies. The movie takes place in Nevada, which the sheriff mentions is "at least 30 miles from the open ocean." Yeah. 30 miles. Give or take. Nor does the blurb on the back of the DVD match the actual movie. The main character is Steven (not Jake) who is a college professor (not high school) on the trail of a 12 foot great white (not 30 foot).All in all, I would say this movie is the new crown-jewel in my collection of bad shark movies (though I am still waiting on "Cruel Jaws" a.k.a. "Jaws 5"...."
