My first Deep Blue Terror weekend was a huge success with 7 films watched and 3 books! Last weekend I looked at five films. This weekend so far I've watched another three and plan the same for tonight. Here I share with you my thoughts on another one I looked at.
Starring: Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Cassie Scerbo, John Heard
Sharks are being driven north by bad weather but when tornadoes strike the Los Angeles, the sharks are sucked up into them as well as swimming the flooded streets. Fin and his friends try to reach his ex-wife April and kids.
I really enjoyed this film! Who isn't freaked out by the thought of sharks swimming the flooded streets outside your home and dropping from a tornado in the sky? You're not even safe in your own home! The special effects of the sharks are pretty good for a SF channel film and the action keeps coming at a good pace.
I liked the characters. Fin is a former surfer and bar owner in Santa Monica and as the streets flood and sharks attack, he is determined to get ex-wife April and their daughter from their house, get his son and get somewhere safe. I really liked his employee Nova, who is kickass and hates sharks. The actress takes the part well. John Heard was funny as the bar's resident drunk George, who can barely function by the time they flee the bar. The quartet is made up by Fin's friend Baz.
This is a tongue-in-cheek B movie but the acting is good, the humour is there and the special effects are better than normal. It's a fun film to enjoy.
