This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The Shallows sees surfer Nancy fighting for survival against a bloodthirsty shark and I was all for it. The pacing was perfect, and the tension was palpable. I found myself fearing for Nancy as she struggled to get to grips with what was happening to her, wincing when she got back into the dangerous waters and cheering when she eventually got her own back on the shark.
It was a good, thrilling watch and gave some genuine scares that really made me fear the open water.
