Deep Blue Sea












Four starsThe best shark movie since… well, you know

    A rare quality for its genre, Deep Blue Sea has characters you like and, more conventionally, sharks that eat them. An absurd but appealing sci-fi setup leads to a suspenseful disaster film story structure. The film also deserves a lot of credit for toying with the audience’s genre expectations as well. 

Example: watch this inspiring Sam Jackson monologue (it goes without saying, I know). Avoid if you don't like spoilers or humor. 


But this film's greatest achievement may be, on a visual entertainment level, the most ingenious sequence of shark destruction ever put on the screen. 

Conveniently, the scene can also double as a how-to guide for surviving a shark attack.  


The Dilemma:  

You're a sexy scientist in your underwater alzheimer's research facility, which happens to be flooding, and your giant, hyper-intellegent test shark decides it wants to eat you before applying to Mensa. What do you do? 


Step 1: 

Get out of water


Step 2: 

Undress


 

Step 3 (These steps are less important):

Stand on shock-proof wetsuit. 

  

Step 4:

While still undressed, pull active electrical wire out of wall.


Step 5: 

Just when Stephen Hawking opens his mouth...

 

Step 6: 

Very important: Even after shark is dead, stay in underwear.


Now in Rapid Succession


Your welcome.
