The Shallows ★★★

The Shallows features one very relentless shark, who does not give up... ever. While that endless hunt seems a little unbelievable, and is stretched further from reality than I would like, the movie does hold itself together well.

We have very few characters, limited locations and the compact action feels thrilling. If there's anything about the story, I would have actually kept it even more compact. I didn't like the CGI phone calls, and the choppy editing together with slow motion.

Other than that, The Shallows is a little shallow shark movie that does what it aims to do - entertains.
