The Shallows

Release Date: June 24, 2016
Review Date: June 24, 2016
Reviewer: Blake Leath
Genre(s): Drama

Castaway meets Open Water, Baywatch, and/or Farrah Fawcett.

I'm always sorta amazed by movies that are so simple and elemental: woman, rock, dorsal fin.

The Shallows is beautifully filmed, the bay of Lord Howe Island (Queensland, Australia) stunningly gorgeous. Blue sugar.

It probably warrants only a 7, but is somehow very gratifying nonetheless.

If you suffer from galeophobia or vasovagal syncopy, however, you are chum, sista.
