Blake Lively is excellent, the story is okay with some good scary bits with the killer shark.
Pleasantly surprised by this. The trailer made it look like it was going to be Sexploiting Blake Lively: The Movie, but it was much more respectful than that. Effective and well paced and Lively gives... Read more a pretty good performance. Steven Seagull>Wilson.
When I saw this film advertised, it was likened to being a modern day "JAWS" for todays generation. And that it definitely is! There are a multitude of Shark movies out there, many of which are ridiculously... Read more bad! But even though "SHALLOWS" could be considered very implausible in parts, it really was a great movie that had me on the edge of my seat most of the way through. The final showdown with the Shark is nerve jarring stuff, and could see some of the more nervous viewers, becoming a bit scared of swimming out in the deep this Summer. So to sum up...don't say this is just another one of those dumb Shark movies. Forget all those B-Grade dropouts, and enjoy this film which is at times genuinely scary stuff!
Fingernail biting stuff...a bit jawsy in the end but it had to come to some sort of conclusion.... well worth the watch.
There is mind bending originality in the screenplay.
