Deep Blue Sea 3

Dr. Emma Collins and her team are spending their third summer on the island of Little Happy studying the effect of climate change on the great white sharks who come to the nearby nursery every year to give birth. Along with the last two inhabitants of this former fishing village, their peaceful life is disrupted when a “scientific” team led by her ex-boyfriend and marine biologist Richard show up looking for three bull sharks who we soon learn aren’t just any bull sharks.

Movie Reviews:

  • JPV852: Better than the lame sequel and this one does have its moments, including the shark killing a character following a valiant speech, but many of the characters were, especially early on, a bit obnoxious being the cliched preachy environmentalist. In addition, performances weren’t exactly the best either. However, there were some fun kills at least so it’s probably worthy of a rental, though still a far cry from the first film. **2.5/5**
  • garethmb: Following up the events of the 2018 release “Deep Blue Sea 2”; “Deep Blue Sea 3” has arrived on home video and video on demand.

    The film centers around a small group of researchers on a small floating city off the coast of Africa. The team is headed by Dr. Emma Collins (Tania Raymonde), who looks to study Great White sharks as a basis for how Climate Change can impact humanity as well.

    As she and team go about their routine, a boat arrives with her ex and a team of divers. The new arrivals claim that a group of Bull Sharks has been hunting and they have been tasked with tracking, containing, and possibly eliminating them.

    Emma is skeptical as Great Whites are more than capable of dealing with Bull Sharks but a discovery during a dive convinces her that they are dealing with far more than they have been lead to believe.

    What follows is a race against time to get to the truth and survive the onslaught of the dangerous genetically altered sharks.

    Although better than the last film; the movie does suffer in the story and acting as the story lacks any real tension and the cast delivers the lines with a minimum of energy. What the film does well is have some really good underwater scenes and some very original and fun take outs by the Sharks. You know what you are getting with a straight to video shark film and while “Deep Blue Sea 3” is not going to stand out in terms of its story and acting; it does have some passable FX and is ideal for some no-brainer fun and is ideal for a fun distraction.

    2.5 stars out of 5

  • Tejas Nair: Not as great as the original movie, which is considered the second-best shark movie since Jaws (1975), Deep Blue Sea 3 still manages to keep you entertained with better CGI, a better plot than the second instalment, and an overall active screenplay that is more about ‘sharks on a vengeful killing spree’ than ‘humans making dumb decisions’. Watch it if you are a shark film aficionado like me. (Grade C). TN.
