    The newest entry in the shark thriller/survival film genre, The Shallows almost succeeds at making me think its psychological undercurrent (heh) is completely understood by its director, but some silly high-octane action toward the very end, and the ultimately very cheesy surfing material and the front and back of the film, give me important doubts. A physical performance from Blake Lively, a fun sidekick in the form of an injured gull, and some cool updates to the old tropes using digital technology keep the core of the movie afloat however. You can definitely take her journey as psychological, the shark a manifestation of the grief she's running from, the rotting whale a reminder of mortality, the island's shape the spirit of her mother, and even the corny Gatorade commercial surfing the fantasy of denial she creates for herself. Just not sure the first and second levels really embrace one another like they should. 1 year 11 months ago

    "Ready to get wet, Dr. Adams?"

    I wonder how many times Reynolds has pulled that line since?
