Goofs

Sharks don't take things personally. As long as the whale carcass was still around, a great white would have left a human alone. Whale meat is everything great whites need - fat-rich and full of protein. It would have focused on feeding on the whale carcass and pretty much ignored Nancy, who could have made the swim back to shore un-noticed. As it is inferred by Nancy, she has trespassed into the shark's feeding ground, it is no longer about food but about territory. See more »

So bad on so many levels
23 September 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

My God, the movie is bad. I'll just point a few things and rest my case:

The shark in the movie is big and behaves like a human psychopath. The bit on the woman's leg does not match it's teeth. A shark of that size can chew steel cables. It's bite can tear flesh and muscles from the bone and can sever limbs. Yet the woman has only suffered a mere flesh wound.

After only a few hours, the woman is hungry enough to eat crabs and gross stuff, which make her puke. This is stupid. Hunger makes you so desperate after a few days, not hours.

Birds have frail articulations and many tiny bones in their wings. The bones are spongy and frail. It's hard to arrange a bird's articulation even for a veterinary surgeon, yet she does it like it's her hobby.
