    Default Deep Blue Sea

    Samuel L. Jackson does a better job dealing with snakes on crack than he does with brainy sharks.

    I remember seeing this years ago on Pay-Per-View and remember digging it.

    Wow it has been a while since I saw this film. I remember enjoying it when I watched it and bought it on DVD a few years ago. I need to break this one out again and give it a watch.

    One of my favorite "science gone wild" flicks, also the last movie that I saw directed by Rennie Harlan that I really enjoyed. This one I put right up there with the first JAWS to tell the truth. Then to add to the festivities you also have to include Trevor Rabine's excellent score which really adds to the flick's impact. And much like 1988's THE BLOB, the film has that whole, "nobody's safe" vibe in it. Especially with

    Samuel "One Bad Motherfucker" Jackson's surprise death scene, where after the one shark nabs him. Another right after joins it ,and pulls him apart like a tootsie pop. Also fans of Kevin Smith, might remember in the very short-lived Clerks animated series. That everytime Mr. Jackson showed up, a shark would immediatly appear ,and snatch him away.

    I did think that the shark bitting off Stellan Skarsgaard's arm scene was pretty intense, and maybe seeing Saffron Burrows drenched from water in her bra and underwear was quite hot, but other than that it was not a shark movie that I really got into for some reason. I remember this came out right around the same time as Steve Miner's Lake Placid, and that one I did enjoy if only for the dark comedy.

    I will say however, that Deep Blue Sea was slightly more enjoyable, and similar in some aspects to Sean Cunningham's 1989 underwater dud "Deep Star Six".

    I found it very enjoyable as a peice of mindless cheese. Sharks are scary, and this film used them well and had some effective moments including THAT twist.

    I can't remember, but did Renny Harlin find a way to make a shark explode? Possibly explode while in an explosion?

    Deep Star Six ...haven't seen that in years. if i remember it wasn't that awful. Miguel Ferrer and Greg "My two dads" Evigan starred i believe.

    Lake Placid - Now theres a cracking film. So much better than Lake Placid 2, which, incidentally is one of the worst movies i have ever seen.

    Deep Blue Sea - Excellent film. Jacksons death was a bit of a shock. Got this one and Lake Placid on DVD.

    It's been a while since I've seen it, but I'm pretty sure that they did, in fact, use an explosion to kill the shark. Renny wouldn't have it any other way.

    The one problem with this movie is that we never find out all the secrets to the perfect omelette. We know it's a mistake to add milk for density, but that's all.

    I really like this movie. I like most of the movies that Thomas Jane is in and this is no exception.

    Interesting take on why the sharks are "hunting" them instead of just making them go after a certain group of people for revenge (yeppers, I'm looking at you, Jaws 4 ).

    I really like LL Cool J's character in it too. Pretty entertaining movie overall.

    So Renny's guide to making a great shark film:

    Explosions

    Have the sharks explode (key element)

    Have LL Cool J rap about sharks during the end credits.

    Let's be honest, we all went to see Deep Blue Sea just for the third point.

    To be fair, Shark explosions are hardly something new.... Jaws anyone?
    Which is why Renny's a genius...exploding sharks exploding within an explosion of an explosion! With LL rapping later, of course.

    Throw in a parrot sitting on LL's shoulder, and that's Deep Blue Sea in a nutshell.

    Imagine if the parrot rapped with LL during the credits! Do you think people were ready for such a thing back then?
