Shark Night 3D – Our official review
Overview and plot
7 American college students, plan to spend the weekend at a lake house on a small island in the Louisiana Gulf. As they arrive on the main land, they bump into an old flame (Chris Carmack – Luke from the OC) of Sara’s (Sara Paxton – Last house on the left) with a history of Sara leaving the area three years ago leaving him with a nice scar on his face, after him picking a fight with the group, they leave on a boat for the island vacation home, ready for the weekend of there life.
The weekend starts like any vacation weekend, with beer and women in bikini’s not Known to them that a innocent bit of fun on a boat in the lake, would start to unravel a plot that turns the fun loving weekend into there worst nightmare.
After one of the group gets injured they decide to attempt to get him to the local hospital, but blood dripping from the wound, is about to bring down all hopes of getting away from the lake house and getting there friend some help. Attracting a large Tiger shark to attack the boat and leaving them to swim for shore in the sharks path.
But this is only the beginning of the terrifying story, when after working out how the shark got into the lake they realize that the help that arrives is not the help they are seeking, when some local shark diving enthusiasts decide to make “Jaws” cross “snuff” movie, with the groups lives at stake.
With the nice collection of sharks including, Tiger sharks, cookie cutters, hammer-heads and great white’s there does not look like much hope for the college vacationers.

What we thought of Shark Night
With a few known faces in the cast, this creature feature was a nice bit of fun with a few scares and jumps on the way. With the story starting of with meeting the 7 main characters at college, you know that the was going to be drinking and half naked women involved. Not to mention people doing foolish things like going in the water when you know what is going to happen if they venture into the shallows.
The story was simple but it worked and they unlikely hero played up to the part, the plot seemed realistic but I’m sure sharks dont jump out of the water to catch there prey in mid air (correct me if I’m wrong). The CGI was good but it had not advanced much from the 1999 movie “Deep blue sea“, but at least the animatronics had improved from the 1970′s lol.
A scene with a college football star with one arm, a spear and an 8ft Hammer-head shark seemed a little unreal to me, but its a monster movie at the end of the day and they all need a bit of comedy. It was nice to see that they had thought about what sharks to introduce into the movie, from small cookie cutters to the famous Great white and ways to kill of the cast. The movie was very enjoyable to watch, it was just a shame that the final shark was taken out as easy as it was and the crediting scene was very similar to 2010 creature movie “Piranha“, over all not a bad film it is not going to have the impact of the original shark movie “Jaws” back in the mid 70′s but not many will.
