DEEP BLUE SEA
1999, Warner Bros., 105 min, USA, Dir: Renny Harlin

In this terrifying adventure, what was once a peaceful underwater research facility becomes a deadly feeding ground for a frenzy of great white sharks. But these killer fish are no ordinary great whites - these are hyper-intelligent sharks genetically engineered by a group of careless scientists. As the super-species begins to breach the laboratory and make their way to the surface, the scientists must fight to survive and stop the sharks from reaching open water and entering the ecosystem. With a stellar cast including Thomas Jane, Saffron Burrows, Samuel L. Jackson, Stellan Skarsgård and LL Cool J, DEEP BLUE SEA still holds up nearly 20 years later as one of the most fun shark-attack movies. “Call it silly. Call it obvious -- there's nothing more obvious than a shark attack. But this is one of the few big-fish horror films that still has the power to surprise.” - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle.
