Deep Blue Sea

Horror . Action . Thriller . Science Fiction . Sci-Fi

On a remote former submarine refueling facility called Aquatica, a team of scientists are searching for a cure for Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Susan McAlester genetically engineers three Mako sharks, intending to increase their brain capacity so that they can harvest the tissue as a cure for Alzheimer's. Unfortunately, the increased brain capacity also makes the sharks smarter, faster, and more dangerous. Aquatica's financial backers are skeptical and nervous about the tests, and send a corporate executive to visit the facility.

More Info:
  • David Ansen

    Deep Blue Sea gives good rush -- earning its stripes as one terrific junk movie.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    Not everything in the film happens according to the traditional, overly familiar blueprint.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    An example of how expert action filmmaking and up-to-the-minute visual effects can transcend a workmanlike script and bring excitement to conventional genre material.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    After slogging through the predictability of countless would-be action thrillers, I admired the sheer professionalism of this one, which doesn't transcend its genre, but at least honors it.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    One of the few big-fish horror films that still has the power to surprise.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It proves capable of doing something that many more artistically ambitious films fail at: entertaining an audience for nearly two hours.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ron Wells

    If distinctly uneven CGI, minimal originality and overly convenient plot devices turn you off, this may not be your film.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Imagine a cut-rate "Titanic" stripped of romance and historical resonance and fused with "Jaws," shorn of mythic symbolism and without complex characters, and you have the essence of this live-action horror comic.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    This movie's entire raison d'etre (that's French for "shark meat") is to toy creatively with the "rules."

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    At once self-conscious and generic, this smart monster movie about smart monsters -- supersharks cleverer than the scientist who created them -- repeatedly lulls you into thinking it's paint by numbers.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Staff(Not credited)

    How refreshing: a big-budget, F/X-happy action flick that actually appears to be intentionally stupid.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Koehler

    Powered by exceptional displays of physical filmmaking, Deep Blue Sea is pulled back to shore by the usual suspects -- weak plotting and weaker dialogue.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    You have a movie in which sharks with triple-digit IQs hunt humans with double-digit IQs. It’s no contest.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Doug Saunders

    One of those stupid movies that are good to relax with.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    The characters are two-dimensional and the story is intensely formulaic.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    A preposterously silly bit of work, chock-full-o' nuts and rife with the kind of plot holes you could drive a submersible ROV through.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    It's every bit as silly as it sounds, sillier really.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    One of those hellishly predictable digital-monster gauntlets that makes you pity the actors.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Barbara Shulgasser

    Even overlooking the fundamental inanity of the movie, one is left to contend with some offensive racial stereotyping.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Unsalvageable B-movie junk.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • William Arnold

    So uninvolving as basic storytelling that it quickly becomes boring.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • David Denby

    The disgraceful script is by Duncan Kennedy, Donna Powers, and Wayne Powers. Directed with occasional flashes of nasty wit by Renny Harlin.
