The Shallows


Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
Written by: Anthony Jaswinski
Cast: Blake Lively
Studio: Sony Pictures
Genre: Drama, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: "200 yards from shore, surfer Nancy is attacked by a great white shark. Her short journey to safety [is] becoming the ultimate contest of wills."


The Shallows feels like a really well made, SyFy channel movie. Now, that may sound like a bad thing but it isn't meant as such. It is just that the shark REALLY wants to eat Blake Lively. Like, really, really wants to chow down on her. And this motivation for the shark has it do things that I don't think sharks would do. Yet, in the end, the film works. You want Nancy to make it to shore/survive and outsmart and/or kill the shark. So, if you enjoy "man versus nature" films, check out The Shallows.
