group of College kids head up to one of their groups family vacation
home on Lake Pontchartrain for a weekend of sun and funÖbig mistake.
my short rundown above and seeing the DVD cover, Iím sure you can work
out what you are in for with this film. Letís get things straight here -
Shark Night is a very silly film. Let me give an example; Our
leading man plays college nerd at the beginning, all thick coke bottle
glasses and studying hard for finals, but as soon as he looses the
glasses and his t-shirt, heís now transformed to good looking leading
man with a six pack! Amazing, I know! Also from the moment our intrepid
group leaves for the lake, we are subjected to scenes of sped up
footage, from the entire road trip and their scenes of sun and fun to
get them out of the way quicker so we can get to the blood, guts and
sort of fare is typical to what weíve seen countless times before, more
recently with Piranha 3D - only this is toward the lower end of
that scale with a bunch of good looking young guys and girls (in
bikinis) slowly tossed to the grind, one by one, having very
underwhelming deaths at the hands...or I should say fins of our other
sharp toothed leads.
Brought to us by Director, David R. Ellis of Final Destination,
Cellular, Snakes on a Plane, The Final Destination
and Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco (!!!) fame, he
brings us a film much like 2009ís Piranha 3D, only his isnít as
also funny to note that while this film is titled Shark Night,
the majority of it takes place during the dayÖ
on this disc include - Shark Nightís Survival Guide, Fake
Sharkís Real Scares and Ellis Island with the latter two
being the most interesting. One being about the behind the scenes of the
creation of the CG and animatronic sharks for the film and the last
about the Director, David R. Ellis.
up Shark Night - itís a really dumb movie, with shallow,
unlikeable leads and bad CGI. Shown in theatres titled Shark Night 3D,
itís like Jaws 3D, only with out the visual gimmickry and just the lame
movie left over.
