Be ready to Laugh.

Yes, sorry to say this flick had me laughing a lot. Writers did a bad job and no matter how hard the actors tried to make this B rated movie believable.Just wasn't happening. Deep Blue 1 was Extraordinary.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (2):

It's a pretty routine scare-fest with a crew of dopes following their mad scientist leader only to discover that "the shark did it" and will do it again and again and again. Deep Blue Sea 2 has all the expected horror tropes associated with ocean's most feared (and, as the heroine explains, "misunderstood") predator. As happens in many other low-budget horror flicks, the often ridiculous mayhem is laughable -- and maybe that's just what the filmmakers were going for. Suspenseful music and eerie sounds lead either to moments of false jeopardy or to mighty jaws opening to devour blissfully stupid people who just can't believe that they're treading dangerous waters with an experiment destined to go wrong. Who will live? Who will be fish food? Calling all sharks ... the buffet is open! Not recommended.
