Deep Blue Sea 2 (2018)

“Yes. They are a bit more dangerous than traditional lab rats, but no one is gonna get hurt here.” – Carl Durant

Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 Mar 2021)

Brief Synopsis – An entrepreneur funds a project where they genetically alter the brains of 5 bull sharks, but something goes wrong.

My Take on it – This is a film that I decided to watch because my friends Mark and Jay on the Deep Blue Sea Podcast to include the two sequels to the hit original from 1999.

This is by far the silliest and least interesting of the trilogy and wasn’t very easy to get through because of the way they present things.

the story itself makes very little sense and constantly falls into the same trap over and over that many other sequels of the genre have fallen into; they can;t find anything very original or unique to do to make things better and more enjoyable than the first film in the franchise.

The cast is horrendous and even the very likable Michael Beach isn’t able to pull it off here as the Samuel L. Jackson of the sequel.

The movie is a constant rehash of many of the aspects of the previous film and never really finds its own voice here.

The effects are ok and they have some nice shark attacks (as one might expect) but other than that, this is pretty much a waste of time (unless u wanna discuss it on a MXM podcast 🙂

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In Deep Blue Sea (1999), the shark facility is called Aquatica. In the sequel, the shark facility is called Akheilos. In Greek mythology, Akheilos (or Acheilus) is the son of Zeus and Lamia. Akheilos offends Aphrodite, boasting that he is more beautiful than she, and is then transformed into a grotesque shark-like creature. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
