It’s the kind of a proudly preposterous B-movie that is just at range in the grounds of summertime, when we already have low expectations, and almost everybody has already had their satisfaction of awesome blockbusters and the severe films of the fall is waiting to be shown in theaters. Not that there is anything haywire with that. The movie Shark Night is not as painful, and it’s dumb fun, but unfortunately without the simpering self-awareness that other films have.
There are times that the film’s refusal to blink is absolutely impressive. See the minute Malik stumbles, red-eyed and bruised, to the body of water to take revenge on the demise of someone loved by him. The fierce sharks got one of those people, and he wants to do that same thing to the sharks. He announces with a tremulous profundity of feelings that would do Stanislavsky proud. Joining Malik are hunky nerd Nick, hot chick Beth, jackass Gordon, cutie boy Dennis, and Latina personality Maya. The lake home, which is placed on an island so distant for mobile phone signal, dwells on oracular Sara, who comes to formulate reasons for not being able to come home the former three years.
Stay put for the unanticipated post-credits scene in which the cast executes a hip-hop song that’s kinda awful, but Walls does make do a few amusing stylings when it was his turn to belt out at the mic.
