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.
Deep Blue Sea is a mess, but a deeply entertaining one (if you pardon my stupid pun)
Because it's a mess and because I'm lazy and tired, I'll just provide some thoughts and notes, instead of a proper review:
* First of all, Saffron Burrows. She's pretty and all that, but what a black hole of charisma she is in this movie. I don't think she emoted at all, even when she was in danger. I know, that she was supposed to be the cold, rational scientist, but she acted like she was the coldest cyborg ever built. Her dramatic performance is on par with Ashton Kutcher in The Butterfly Effect (this is not an compliment, as anyone can imagine).…
Part horror film, part action/adventure, part disaster movie, Renny Harlin's "Deep Blue Sea" is high-powered, multi-genre fun. Fast and full of crackling tension, the film is an exciting and full-bodied, pitting human versus nature in a battle of life and death. Harlin's most exhilarating outing, "Deep Blue Sea" is a relentlessly entertaining piece of work.
Yet another version of the "Frankenstein" myth, the film's narrative finds a group of scientists experimenting with shark's brains in order to find a cure for Alzheimer's. Of course, the scientists create monsters of the already-dangerous creatures, and all manner of Mako-generated mayhem breaks loose when the fish outgrow their captivity.
It is a compelling if recognizable story, and Harlin executes it with a ferocious…
One of my favourite words in the English language is the verb 'to guffaw'.
I don't guffaw often.
This film, with that one scene, made me guffaw repeatedly. Until it hurt.
It is because of that that it is one of my biggest guilty pleasures.
That and the super smart sharks.
And LL Cool J playing a chef.
And just, you know, stuff blowing up.
Little known fact: this was the motion picture that finally spurred the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to create the Golden Globe Award for Best Use of Stellan Skarsgård as an Underwater Projectile. It was also, unsurprisingly, the award's first winner.

Fuck Sharknado am I right
sharks below, fire above. this is cinema.
So many quality concepts and a great premise to contain characters in an old submarine bunker and have them get eaten one by one. It's basically a huge blockbuster slasher film that uses hockey science and decent acting to get the characters from place to place. By the end though it's a pretty dull movie that is hollow and the characters really have no business being rooted for.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Any film that kills off Samuel L Jackson before LL Cool J is pretty brave, or so short of cash they couldn't afford to film any longer with Jackson. Otherwise this is a fairly standard story of scientists mess with nature, nature turns the tables, scientists eventually escape. Yawn
ll cool j is cast as a cook in this movie. this is an automatic 3 stars and samuel l jackson's death in the film is one of the best death scenes ever so this is an extra star. A lesson for filmmakers around the planet: cast ll cool j as a cook and have samuel l jackson die in an absurd way and you get a 4 star movie ;)
Quando eu tinha 14 anos era tão legal! ... com 31, foi meio chato perceber que a direção ficou claramente datada!
it's like CON AIR. but with sharks.

Do i look ashamed? This is so much fucking fun.
It's always nice to rewatch the films that scared me as a child but that now make me feel good and cosy at home in a rainy night!
While female directors are relatively sparse in the mainstream film industry as a whole, in comparison to their male counterparts,…
