CoolJ standing in the kitchen with a frying pan weapon and a shark swims past

A big part of the film is black dude trying to hide from a shark in a flooded kitchen. Really funny when he falls off a set of kitchen shelves. Gutting when his pet parrot gets it and awesome when he blows the shark up. Even Samuel Jackson (many awesome films) stepped aside in this one. What's not to like.

Classic shark thriller
Verified purchase
Having being disappointed by some more recent shark films we downloaded this classic. Great soundtrack that helps build the tension, with witty dialogue. Considering that it’s almost 20 years on the sharks look realistic and scary far more so than some of the cgi generated ones of today’s genre. LL cool J and Samuel L Jackson are great in this film.

A classic horror/suspense movie!
Verified purchase
I remember watching this movie when I was a kid and was super surprised to find it is a lot gorier than I remember!! It's such a great movie, a classic survive-against-the-odds sort of a story - it is super gory but the animation isn't what it is today (obviously!) so it's not too scary (but I am a wimp so it still scares me!) It's almost like a thriller, a prey/predator movie - brilliant, gotta watch!

Beneath this glassy surface, a world of gliding monsters!

The late 90s produced a slew of creature features from Anaconda to Lake Placid. But the one film which I always held off on watching was Deep Blue Sea, for no other reason than I never had access to it and was too lazy to buy it on DVD. So now when I saw that it was available on Prime Video I finally watched it and yes, it was awesome. A mix between a creature feature and a disaster movie, it manages to be equally entertaining and suspenseful.

excellent nail biting action movie which challenges stereotypes

& 1 of the lessons is the road to hell can be paved with good intentions, in this case by a doctor trying to find a cure for parkinsons.

Lots of obsession, violence, ... but actually boring. I would have liked some more brainwork.

Seeing that is was the Mr's shark week, thought we should watch a shark film to celebrate. Good film, recommended.
