I mean, this was not good but then I don’t know why anybody would expect anything different from a dtv sequel that nobody asked for released 19 years after the original, right?
The effects are surprisingly not as bad as I thought they would be but everything else was. It’s basically a retread of the first movie on a very scaled down budget. The sea level entrance to the underwater laboratory looks like it cost about $3 to make. The whole middle section was kinda boring and the bald black actor playing a billionaire who’s not Samuel L. Jackson irritated me because he wasn’t Samuel L. Jackson and because he was just obnoxious.
Still, you’ve got cute killer baby sharks, a fantastic last kill, and Rob Mayes running around in a wet suit for the entire movie and those things are almost enough to redeem this.
