Excerpt: Every so often I get a movie that makes me chuckle. Not in the sense that the movie in question is a comedy and the intended result is a laugh. No, sometimes a movie is just lame that you can’t help but wonder what in the world the filmmakers were thinking.
Excerpt: The Film Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, Shark Night has come to Blu-ray. Well, it's still safe, as long as you aren't going into lakes in Louisiana or maybe into any video stores. Shark Night tries to capitalize on the phenomena of 2010's Piranha 3D .
Conclusion: Shark Night is without a doubt one of the most ridiculous films I’ve ever seen, but I can’t say I didn’t have a little fun with it. The Blu-ray presentation is top-notch, and that warrants at least a rent.
Conclusion: Move along, there's nothing to see here. 'Shark Night' is a feeble attempt by Fox to cash in on the 'Piranha 3D' success. There's nothing funny, tongue-in-cheek or campy about 'Shark Night,' it's just bad.
Conclusion: Shark Night is quite possibly the dumbest movie given wide theatrical release last year. It feels like a smaller, much tamer, non-comedic version of last year's Piranha . That movie wasn't all that special, so you can imagine how flat this PG-13 version must be, without inspired casting and cameos,...
Conclusion: Shark Night isn't awful --it's competently filmed and features actors who do what they can with their underwritten roles--but it just doesn't deliver the kind of visceral and/or over-the-top experience that genre fans want from this sort of movie.
Excerpt: You can’t blame Fox for Shark Night . After the unexpected success of Piranha and a burgeoning home video shark market ( Shark Zone , Shark Attack , Shark Hunter , Two-Headed Shark , Shark This , Shark That ), there’s a market for schlock like this. Some of Shark Night understands.
