MOVIE REVIEW: THE SHALLOWS


Storyline:
In the taut thriller The Shallows, when Nancy (Blake Lively) is surfing on a secluded beach, she finds herself on the feeding ground of a great white shark. Though she is stranded only 200 yards from shore, survival proves to be the ultimate test of wills, requiring all of Nancy's ingenuity, resourcefulness, and fortitude.
Starring:
Blake Lively, Óscar Jaenada, Brett Cullen.

Pros and Cons:
The Shallows has the most realistic looking shark out of any shark film I've watched. The tension builds up nicely throughout and every time the shark shows up is a treat. The only reservation that I have with this film is the end is a little silly. However you really have to suspend belief when it comes to any film that's based completely around a shark attacking people. They are always going to be unrealistic. Bottom line: The shark is awesome, hopefully this movie being successful at the box office will give way to more heavily plot based shark films; where the shark looks just as real as the one seen here.

Rating:
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
