Sarah’s reveiw: “I wasted an hour and a half of my life.”

I didn’t think the movie was awful, just not very good. It was tense, and I appreciate that they did it on a tight budget, but how exciting can you make sitting around in the water. Sharks, jellyfish, other stuff…they covered it. I thought (from what I’ve gleaned watching the National Geographic channel) some of the shark stuff was pretty far fetched.

    I think this was a waste of an hour and a half of my life, plus any extra minutes I spent thinking about how I wasted time. Come to think of it, this post is wasted minutes that come as a result of having seen that movie. But, if it saves just one person from the wasting, then it’s worth it.

    That was definately a waste of my life. There was no plot to the story at all and it was really dragged out. You knew how it would end within the first couple minutes. One out of ten i would give it a zero.

    I’m so glad we rented it for $4.50 or so, instead of $8 a piece. Then I would be raging mad.

    I saw this and I had to comment. Worst freaking movie I have ever seen in my entire life. -12 out of 5 stars.

    Was the entire thing shot on a VHS camcorder? Have they ever heard of a boom mic? What horrible production company read the script and said “this is a great way to spend our money”?

    80% of the movie involved a couple floating and arguing about everything. When the last scene in any movie consists of all the main characters dying, I consider that a bad movie. I mean the last scene is a woman killing herself, then the credits roll. I wast my $8 back.
