Water, water everywhere, and far too many large-ass, genetically-engineered, as-smart-as-your-average-pit-bull-crossed-with-a-fluid-mechanics-engineer mako sharks for my taste.
Okay, so you know the plot. You see, you take this shark, see, and keep it in its natural habitat rather than putting it in some research facility in the fricking desert, but you use nice titanium fencing material, so everything is going to be alright. Then you use fricking lasers and gene therapy to make these sharks really, really, really big, see, so that their brains are really, really big. But, you see, there is no way to just make their brains big, and these guys get really, really big, and smart enough to eat their way out of captivity to FREEDOM. I can just see the big bad GEN2 shark talking between mouthfuls of human...
"Some sharks are created bigger than others...But seriously guys, we gots to be getting out of here... I say we eat these little snack cookies, and then become the baddest ocean swimmers since MEGLADON."
Okay, so this movie stars Saffron Burroughs, who acts well enough, but gets down to her skivvies even better in order to do her best impersonation of Roy Scheider. She also makes the second dumbest move in the entire movie, which is rapidly followed by the first. You'll see, because you will see this coolly animated semi-cool film starring the finest African American actor this side of Omar Epps. Yep, Samuel Windu Jackson is here, spouting sage-like advice with the best of them.
Cool effects, don't-play-with-what-God-intended-or-get-eaten morality, hot chicks, Michael Rapaport and cool effects, along with some cool effects, make this a film worth seeing. I will leave you with a couple of parting observations.
