Shark Night 3D(2011)
The director of Snakes on a Plane shifts his attention to sharks in the water in this three dimensional fright fest.... More
A group of attractive teens plan to "rock out" at a lake house in the Louisiana Gulf for the weekend. Fun with drinking, toplessness, and jet boats quickly turns into a nightmare as they are subjected to the full blown killer instincts of fresh-water sharks.Hide

There’s only one truly terrifying thing about Shark Night 3D, and that’s trying to work out how it managed to bite itself off an R16 rating. After all, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws, the undisputed great white of shark attack movies, kept generations of swimmers out of the water with a PG rating, proving that a shark film doesn’t need an insatiable bloodlust if it’s scary and tense....

Sadly Shark Night 3D is neither, despite a fairly decent body count of good looking young teens. Its totally preposterous story has no problem trading suspense for a cheap laugh, which confuses the tone and continuously kills off any danger that director David R. Ellis (Snakes on a Plane) attempts to build. Meanwhile, the menace of the many varieties of killer sharks onscreen is hampered by the obviousness of their CGI. There’s one shark in particular that practically twirls a moustache, such is its cartoon villainy…
Despite all that, there’s enjoyment to be found in the shark-infested depths of this film. The action may be gummy rather than serrated but there’s fun to be had in watching the sharks hunt down their attractive prey and there’s at least two outrageously ridiculous kills that will have you groaning in delight at the audacity of their awfulness.
It’s the film lack of bite and muddled tone that let it down. Not particularly thrilling, scary, gory or funny, Shark Night 3D won’t be keeping anyone out of the water this summer.Hide

Shark Night 3D
BY Sophiehnz wannabe
We watched this today and got to enjoy the 3D movie with the motion seats, this really added to the excitement of the movie, the fact the chair would be moving along with the shark etc.... I found the storyline a bit corny and boring at times, but I did jump a few times, it had a few surprise scares! A bit gruesome but you would expect that, I found part quite amusing... Almost like the Piranha movie... I would recommend to people who enjoyed Piranha and like their horror movies a bit amusing.
