It was a suspenseful, action packed movie, although quite predictable. The demise of the shark was kind of dumb.

A tense shark attack film. Analysis will find flaws but there's nothing so obvious it can't be overlooked by a little willing suspension of disbelief. You might also enjoy Soul Surfer and 127 Hours (no sharks in this but same feel), both based on real events.

Another shark movie. Not much of a story.

Well-produced with a strong female character who strategizes her way out of a life-or-death situation when she winds up stranded in a very angry shark's territory, just a couple hundred yards from safety. Blake Lively does a good job portraying a grief-stricken daughter who visits her mom's "special beach" to find solace, solitude, and surfing. There's also a uniquely American take on traveling alone, holding your own, and trusting the people you meet. The ever-present connectivity of technology has its plusses and minuses, including Google's silly substitution for some Spanish translations.

Yikes! Mostly very intense and shark-scary! Beautiful surfing footage! Loved the companion seagull; felt sad about the whale.

this movie scared the shit outta me I recommend this to any horror fan

A surprisingly taut thriller. Despite being hindered by a limited cast of characters and unchanging scenery, this films maintains a fast pace that holds its audience until its, albeit predictable, thrilling climax.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Despite its PG-13 rating this film is intense. There is a prodigious amount of blood and a very graphic suture scene.

The setting:
Guess where I am? Tijuana.
-Oh, my God. No way. Mom's beach, right?
It's just as beautiful as she said it was.
===
Anything gnarly out here, I should know about?
-There's some rocks over there! There's only one tide a day, and when the tide gets low, it becomes an island. There's some nasty fire coral. It stings like a jellyfish.

It's April 26, 2016. Uh, if you find this, please send help right away. I've been attacked by a shark. He's killed three other people since I got here. He's still circling, so... Uh, he's got this big old whale over here, but that-that's the problem. I swam right up onto his feeding ground.
