Everything Wrong With Deep Blue Sea
“That’s what an 8000 pound mako thinks about. About freedom. About the deep blue sea.”
I think we had all just about got over our JAWS fears, when Deep Blue Sea came out in 1999 and gave us those deep see blues all over again. The film tells the tale of smart sharks that get loose from a scientific research base, and whilst the film was isolated within the research compound, it was just as terrifying as its sea bound cousin, Jaws. CinemaSins takes a look back at the shark thriller and picks it full of holes. Everything Wrong With Deep Blue Sea.
“With Meg about to hit theaters, we decided to finally go looking for sins in the most recent modern shark movie that people kind of like… Deep Blue Sea. Guess what? It’s not as great as you remember it being. It has one great moment and that’s it.”
