      Kevin Maher Times (UK) Mostly the documentary, which was finished by the Icelandic-Canadian film-maker Sturla Gunnarsson, leaves you with a profound sense of a life cut short and a mission incomplete. Rated: 4/5 Mar 22, 2019 Full Review Cath Clarke Guardian It's powerful stuff, in places. Rated: 3/5 Mar 22, 2019 Full Review Larushka Ivan-Zadeh Metro Newspaper (UK) Sharkwater Extinction isn't just out to make you feel bad, though, it's cannily also out to entertain. Rated: 3/5 Mar 20, 2019 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse Part call to action and part tribute to the man and his work. T Rated: 3/5 Mar 1, 2021 Full Review Nathaniel Rogers The Film Experience If you care about animal rights or love amazing underwater footage (guilty on both counts!) Sharkwater Extinction is a must-see. Dec 19, 2019 Full Review Simon Foster Screen-Space Footage of him being at one with the creatures and seascapes he lived and fought for are as a profoundly inspiring as anything he had ever shot for the cause of shark conservation.

      Audience Member So not worth 01 hour: and 24 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member I had to close my eyes. It makes me very angry. People who have little value for life deserve to be shown the same for theirs. I'm okay with rounding up all the participants and dumping them in the middle of the Pacific. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member this is an amazing movie, about corruption everywhere, especially costa rica. about the people in the illegal shark fin industry and the guys trying to stop it. more like an action adventure, not a doc. everyones after the money. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member This is an amazing documentary of not only the illegal exploitation of sharks, and portrays a great message, but also just a stunning piece of film. Must watch! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Some beautiful scenes but a critically important message. This ought to be seen in schools and governments but importantly acted upon Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Desde el punto de vista cinematográfico esta bien pero la importancia del documental es la denuncia que hace sobre la sobre explotación de la pesca de tiburón y, peor aun, de la mafia del consumo de aleta de tiburón, donde se manejan costos absurdos, una aleta puede costar US$10 en el Caribe al ser vendida pero en la sopa en China cuesta US$200. Es un tributo a Rob Stewart quien falleció en medio de su lucha. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
