User Score: 80/100


Searching for a cure to Alzheimer's disease a group of scientists on an isolated research facility become the bait as a trio of intelligent sharks fight back.

I have to say that Deep Blue Sea (1999) is another movie I saw way back and I did not like it much. I like the idea of genetically engineered sharks with massive brains terrorizing a group of scientists but this movie could have been so much better. The cast is great and includes Thomas Jane, Saffron Burrows, LL Cool J, Michael Rapaport, Samuel Jackson and Stellan Skarsgard but there were many cheesy moments. I also felt like LL Cool J had a clause in his script for extra screen time.

All that being said, the CGI had moments that looked horrible and the death scenes were enjoyable. Deep Blue Sea is not exactly horror because it is not scary and the Sci-Fi bits are not too in depth. I would not watch Deep Blue Sea again but it was an okay late night horror movie creature feature film.
