The billing states that in this taut thriller, Nancy (Blake Lively) is surfing alone on a secluded beach when she is attacked by a great white shark and stranded just a short distance from shore. Though she is only 200 yards from her survival, getting there proves the ultimate contest of wills.
Unfortunately, since this is Blake Lively, who was very much ‘Blake UNlively’ in The Age of Adaline, you wouldn’t care less if she snuffs it.
The film also stars Óscar Jaenada and Sedona Legge, is written by Anthony Jaswinski and directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Non-Stop, Run All Night, and no doubt plenty more Liam Neeson pieces of crap to come)
The Shallows looks to have a very shallow script and has had its UK release put back to August 12th. I’d rather be eaten by a shark than watch this.
