[7.50/10] In the Deep (2016)

In the Deep (2016)

Quick Review: The shabby start is barely promising, but once the story descends below the surface, "In the Deep" goes so tense, your fears will quickly start to emerge, as the blend of sharks, gore, and claustrophobia, brings some deep-sea-thrills so big, they'll leave you gasping for air, but also struggle along with the victims. Kudos to Roberts, who executes the hard-to-film underwater scenes very capably, and effortlessly, and makes them look scarily real, yet soaked in dark, turbid atmosphere.

Very early review - won't be able to see it until October. Matthew Modine is sure showing up in a lot of things lately.

Indeed. Alex, make sure you check this one out when released, as it's certainly one of the most entertaining and intense shark flicks ever created.

The trailer already got me hooked like a fish on bait (pun intended); about time we get a decent shark flick since Jaws!

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Kaijinu, just wait to see the movie! :) Best shark flick since 2010's "The Reef"!

Kaijinu said...

Speaking of shark movies, had you seen The Shallows? I thought it was beautiful!

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

No, not yet, because it premiers here in August, but I heard some great things about it. Will check it out as soon as it comes out.

Kaijinu said...

Oh, you should, man! The mall I went to last Monday had it playing as a "sneak preview" since the movie's supposed to be out in August 10! Worth the opportunity!

Thre are no sharkcages without floaters on them. Ridiculousy, in this movie there is such a cage. Come on folks!! Think with your brains please!!!

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

I know, and I will. I live in Europe, so most of the films come out either earlier, or a bit later than in the US. :)

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Gerben, I see your point, but at the end of the day, if there were floaters on that cage, the the film wouldn't go in the desired direction, would it? ;)

DuVall Daniels said...

Amazing, amazing film... makes the Shallows look like a swim in the pond.

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Well-said, Duvall! :)

Gerben – I made the “shark cage” used in this movie. I have not actually seen the film yet but as I understand it, in the story, or perhaps the back story, the cage was not intended for shark observation, it was found by the dodgy shark diving people in a scrap yard, hence the rust and lack of floaters.

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Roger, thank you for that explanation. The entire cage thing makes much more sense now, and I believe that Gerben would agree.
