Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Yes, we all saw this before when it was called The Shallows. And some of us saw it before that as Malibu Shark Attack. We didn’t need another version. Especially not one this inept. The script is by Mark Atkins, best known for films like 6 Headed Shark Attack, Sand Sharks and Monster Island. Unlike them, Shark Season tries to be a serious horror film. It’s just tedious with dialogue as bad as the CGI.” Voices from the Balcony

  1. Michael Madsen’s name on a poster nowadays is certainly no draw, despite our reviewer Meredith’s enthusiasm. He’s come a long way down from when he achieved cult status in Reservoir Dogs, other Tarantino flicks and Bond. That said, there are a LOT of worse actors out there. He’s certainly (and literally) phoning it in here and there’s too much exposition between him and the coast guard guy in the boat. The two female leads acted well despite some terrible dialogue to chew over.

  2. Worst acting ever!!!!
    the father they chose was probably the worst actor I’ve ever watched…
