      Audience Member Let me start off by saying that Shark Lake is a good movie. It's entertaining, exciting, and for the most part the acting is good. That being said, the sharks and gore look really fake, and the police characters are bad. They don't follow any kind of police protocol I'm aware of and they seem entirely incompetent. There also isn't enough Lundgren vs. shark which is the whole reason I watched the movie, but I love shark movies and this one is pretty decent so I'm happy I watched it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review h a The cinematography is well done. The script and the acting are good. Very well made movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Worse graphics ever. And even worse writing. I only gave it two stars because its so bad its hilarious. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review dustin d Shark Lake is basically a crappy version of Jaws. It is pretty easy to match up the characters with the Jaws counterparts--a shark expert even turns up out of the blue. There is a comment on the scientist's small boat, which may or may not have been a nod to the "We're gonna need a bigger boat" line from Jaws. The writing is laughably bad, nothing the characters do makes much sense (the sheriffs think the man who was killed in the water was mauled by a bear, a deputy adopts the daughter of a man she shot, gets upset when he legally turns up, the mob expects delivery of the shark they paid Dolph Lundgren to get even after he spent five years in prison for smuggling exotic animals, Dolph Lundgren kills a deputy toward the end, is never questioned, the sharks are mindless killing machines and behave nothing like sharks). The CGI is crappy. It gets a pass on a lot of these things for the overall sincerity of the film. It came off as amateurish, but an honest attempt to make a shark movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Laughed my arse off, cheap CGI. Had to watch it to the end, just to see, the increasingly unbelievable shark attacks. Worth a view for those who "cheapness" appeals too! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad for a low budget Dolph lundgren thriller Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
