Hopeless
20 August 2003 | by FrateloderSee all my reviews

I got stuck watching this movie while up at my lakehome, and let me tell you: good lord it is terrible. I guess it hasn't been possible to make a good shark movie since the original original. Every Jaws sequel, Deep Blue Sea, this one... NONE of them are scary, have a decent script, have a decent director, have decent actors, etc etc. It's so predictable that it's off the scale! Lou Diamond Phillips must be VERY desperate for a buck these days (and boy did he put in a minimum effort). Avoid this one like the plague.
