Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Horror Thriller - This shark-centered thriller is mostly a single-character survival drama with Blake Lively, so fans of the star will be pleased. Though rated PG-13, the film is much too intense for kids, and there are some moments of disturbing violence and bloodshed.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ... there are times where the special effects and editing aren't as sharp as Lively's performance deserves. But it's still a taut, brutal film, pitting a ravenous sea creature against a woman as hard as coral. It wears you out.

NY Post Full Review
Below Average (No short blurb because the critic pretends to be the shark talking.)

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average ...while this nailbiter sure as hell ain't swimming in the same classic waters as Jaws, it gets the jolting job done. It's all patently ridiculous. But Collet-Serra and Lively show no mercy in hooking us with the B-movie tension. And we bite.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good What makes the film churn so forcefully for so long, however, is Collet-Serra's visual acrobatics, which seem almost to flare up in synchronicity with his heroine's spikes in energy and cunning.
