Four backpackers set out for a week cruising the beautiful great barrier reef on their own Yacht. When their boat capsizes leaving them stranded on the overturned hull they must make a simple choice... stay with a damaged ship, likely to sink at any moment or try to swim for dry land?

Taking to the water the group starts to close in on land but when a giant fin breaks the surface they are hit with the realization that they are being stalked by a deadly fourteen-foot white pointer shark. Will any of them make the swim or will the sea just take what it wants?

 Terrifying

| | See all lebombe's reviews (1)

The guys who did the excellent tiny-budget croc-horror Blackwater have upped their game here.

It's more cinematic than it's very similarly-themed predecessors, Open Water (and Adrift), with a nerve-inducing score and nicely constructed, almost unbearably intense stalk & attack scenes. By having basic but realistic characters who make rational decisions and fantastic use of real shark footage they've made possibly the scariest shark film ever... Jaws may still be the BEST shark film ever, but it doesn't destroy your fingernails like this one.

 I need new pants!!!!

This film is incredible, yes you can argue its all been seen before, but how anyone can find the characters annoying is a little beyond me. The feeling of fear invokes a thought in me, a strong one, "what would I do if it was me?"

Once the characters are in the water, the scale of the ocean becomes apparent while also keeping the danger close and the action frantic. This movie is a must see for me but I will admit I do love sharks so I may seem a little blinkered. This isn't jaws, there isn't a cheesy fake shark, the use of a real shark, shot from multiple angles gives the real fear feeling, there isn't some cheesy one liners or a nice guy, a geek, a hotty and jock, it portrays real people, in real peril.

 What would you do....

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

..If you found yourself capsized on a sinking boat..would you take your chance for a random sighting of a plane flying over head or would you swim for the nearest land knowing that there were possibly Sharks in the water!?
Ths superb low budget Australian film tackles this predicament with a realistic approach and never falls into being far fetched!
The five actors are all brilliant in their roles, and the film uses REAL Great White Shark footage ( watch the " making of " that accompanies the film on this DVD ) and this makes the tension all the more effective as our cast, finding themselves stranded during a yachting weeekend, begin to be rounded up by a marauding Great White Shark as they make an attempt to swim towards land.
The characters are all likeable and the cinematography is fantastic, we have close ups of pale, drawn and terrified faces, aerial shots of vast endless ocean and then the shadowy presence of the shark lurking in the depths below.
I sat down to watch it with a friend, neither of us expecting much, and both were left well impressed.
Highly Recommended!

 Seen It All Before

Well I completely disagree with every single positive bit of feedback in the reviews. This movie has bad acting from all actors, they became increasingly irritating, and I ended up hoping that they would all get eaten and die, so that the shark could have a nice lunch. You've seen this happen so many times in films such as Open Water, Adrift, etc. In a film like this, there's three things that could happen; drown, get eaten, get rescued. For once, I would like to watch a film where something actually happened in between any of those things. In my opinion, this was a waste of time, so I wouldn't spend your money, just go and watch Jaws to see how it should be done.

 Very intense

Have watched quite a few films in this genre,but this has got to be the best so far,as soon as they entered the water my nerves were on edge,agree with all the the other reviews that the use of real shark footage really gave it the edge,highly recommended.
