Deep Blue Supermarket

A tsunami floods a supermarket trapping a group of unfortunate people inside with a couple of ravenous great white sharks for company. It sounds stupid, and perhaps it is, but this shark movie from the pen of Russell Mulcahy (director of Highlander) is loads of gory fun, which is precisely what I want from such a film. The relatively low budget limits what can be done in terms of CGI, and the digital shark effects are the film's weakest point, but director Kimble Rendall doesn't let the obviously fake killer fish prevent him from delivering genuine suspense and thrills.

In the underground car park, several survivors try to avoid being eaten by a twelve footer circling their vehicles, while in the shop itself, a group find themselves trapped on top of shelving units, the aisles now a hunting ground for a great white. Unsuccessful escape attempts see the characters whittled down to a handful, those that don't make it going out in a welter of blood and mangled body parts. The film's gory highlight sees one poor victim having his lower half ripped off leaving his entrails dangling from his ravaged torso. Yum!

According to IMDb's trivia section, a sequel was announced, but there's been nothing yet. I'm up for another bite: when sharks are involved, I always take the bait.

Remarkably watchable

Shark movies, how many good ones are out there? Well, after the obvious the list is pretty baron. However, Bait is remarkably watchable. I was quite surprised to find myself glued to the screen after over half an hour of character show and tell and only the opening shark scene to reel us in. The CGI and casting are the only two factors that plead with me to turn the movie off. For a thirty-mil budget the shark animations were truly inadequate, yet Bait managed to survive considering. Which is more than can be said for most civilians who aren't trapped in a supermarket given the state of that Australian coastline. Matthew Lessall and Ben Parkinson (Casting) need a job chat, some sideline characters offer absolutely, indescribably the worst performances I have ever seen. Listening to the psychotic Aussie robber, frantic store manager and squabbling couple in their car really made me shudder with anger. More time establishing deeper character backgrounds instead would have pleased, although they hold up pretty well for a shark flick.

Despite some teeth grinding actors and reminders of Bruce from Finding Nemo, Bait is visually very pleasing and makes for a worthy shark movie.

Spill, aisle six.

The title of the film is cleverly called Bait, because the writers couldn't think of a clever way to work "Shark" into a title that hasn't been used. The first 23 minutes of the film establishes the characters. Josh (Xavier Samuel) is our main character. His best friend is killed in the opening scene as he is engaged to his sister. She dumps him because... it makes for a better story. While all our main characters are in a grocery store and a robbery and shoplifting is going on, a tsunami strikes bringing with it a couple of very very hungry Great Whites. The scenes bounce between a flooded store with survivors on top of shelves and the parking garage with other trapped individuals.

It is a question of who will live, who will die and how high will sharks jump out of water. Kudos on the tsunami thing, but all in all it is just your average Jaws III quality film.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.
