Review: Shark Night 3D

Shark Night 3D
Dir. David R Ellis
Year: 2011
Aus Rating: M15+
Running Time: 91mins

Where does one start when discussing the wholly ridiculous Shark Night 3D? I could begin by mentioning the flying sharks or the dog that helps perform CPR, but maybe that’s too obvious. I could talk about how all five cinema patrons on a Thursday afternoon (myself included) were chortling along at ludicrous dialogue like “Can we save it?” referring to the arm that has been bitten off by a ravenous shark, to which the med student lead character Nick (Dustin Milligan) replies “Sure, if we can find an orthopaedic surgeon in the middle of the bayou!” Or how about the plot that’s closer to Scream 4 (with sharks!) than Jaws. You can see where this is going.
