    Sure the movie was terrible… but it did have that one shining moment with Samuel L. Jackson. 11 years 6 months ago

    Deep Blue Sea has SUCH a reputation that I kind of thought I'd already seen it. When it came out, people chuckled at the notion that swimming backwards was a sign of high intelligence in the genetically modified sharks (so the science is bonkers), spoiled Sam Jackson's surprising death, and then there's the explosive water gag that went off accidentally and could have killed someone. So how was it actually? I wouldn't give it any writing awards, but it's an entertaining ride. There are a lot of Jaws-wannabes out there, but this one looked at the disaster movie/creature feature clichés and actively decided to subvert a fair few. Science? Out to lunch. Kill shots? Generally cool. Acting? Well, Thomas Jane is a trooper in this and LL Cool J has just about the only interesting character. Somehow, the most bonkers thing in the movie is still Cool J rapping about his hat having a shark fin in the end credits. 1 year 3 months ago
