Hilarious horror movie about a research laboratory in the middle of the ocean that is studying Mako sharks with genetically augmented brains for Alzheimer’s research purposes. Things look fine for the head research scientist () and the rugged shark wrangler (), but of course something must go wrong, and of course the sharks break out, and of course the body count piles up one after the other until finally coming to its final contestants.  Renny Harlin shows no particular directorial flair at the helm of this ship, but doesn’t get in the way of the action either. Those interested in a good gory adventure will have their fill, and those looking for intelligence and plot thoroughness can look elsewhere.
