The Reef, best shark film since Jaws?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. For a low budget film I was suprised that it was much better than I expected. Based on a true story, some liberies were taken, such as the shark being a Great White (which is almost unheard of in those waters) rather than a Tiger shark as was the case in real life. The use of real footage of a great white was excellent, and the sense of isolation floating about in the ocean really came across.

    Although similar in many ways to open water, I thought it a decent film, having said that it went straight to DVD in the UK which was a wise move.

    I would say it is the best shark film since Jaws.
  2. Haven't seen The Reef, but it can't be any worse than "Open Water"!
    I have never seen such a shite film in all my life than that!
    Two people floating about moaning for an hour and a half!!! Utter utter shite!
  3. Not really saying much though, is it? Apart from Jaws I can't remember any watchable shark movies.
  4. Deep Blue Sea was marginally better than Open Water, but only because of the slightly comical screen play :)
