Remind me not to take up swimming in shark-infested waters.|
If I ever take a vacation that is.
No "Open Water" spoilers. Except that I would have paid an extra buck for my ticket if it meant that the filmmakers could have afforded a steadier camera.
No spoilers? C'mon, it's either happy little sharks or hungry little sharks with sad shark faces. I don't know if I can stand the suspense.
The sad thing is that the movie also features jellyfish. Which, of course, don't have faces, happy or sad.
The problem with this movie is that it was very low budget. And it shows.
It felt like a student film: attempt to be deep and meaningful, but then turning out to be just bouncy and with a lot of sharks. Which are scary as hell so the story doesn't have to be actually good, it just has to put those people in that situation.
That being said, it scared the hell out of me.
I'm OK with low budget movies as a matter of principle, but a little less bouncy would have been nice. A little less pixely, too, if it's on the menu.
