Although mako sharks are among the fastest and deadliest predators in the ocean, they're not as smart as humans -- at least, they weren't. However, Dr. Susan McAlester (Saffron Burrows) has been using mako sharks as her test subjects for research on the regeneration of human brain tissues. McAlester has altered the DNA of several sharks, raising them close to the level of human intelligence; the sharks have also become faster and stronger in the process. While these DNA experiments have yielded fascinating results, they're also of questionable ethics and legality, earning her the distrust of several members of her crew, including shark authority Carter Blake (Thomas Jane and cook "Preacher" Dudley (LL Cool J). The financial backers of these experiments have also expressed skepticism, so when McAlester is ready to perform some major tests, financier Russell Franklin (Samuel L. Jackson) arrives for the occasion. McAlester and her team are delicately extracting brain tissue from one of the altered makos when the animal regains consciousness - and becomes very angry. The shark not only attacks the researchers but also damages the floating lab, leaving the crew aboard a literally sinking ship, with the makos eager to go a few rounds - in an arena that favors sharks. Deep Blue Sea was directed by Renny Harlin, and filmed in Mexico at Fox Studios Baja in the underwater filming facilities created for James Cameron's Titanic.

I really liked this movie. I watched it more than five times.
Amazing movie. Great graphics. This is the ''Jaws'' of modern day.
this was an awsome movie.i watched it 10 times.it was so cool the way they made the people get eaten.see the movie.
this is the best movie i have ever seen apart from jaws!!!! i watch it at least 12 times a day and i'm not even sick of it!!!!!!
Ok this movie is ok but doesn't have a good plot. It is scary the first few shark attacks but after that it kind of gets dull. In my opinion buy it but after a while it just might accumulate dust in your house from not watching it
Well, so far I'd have to say that this is my fave shark movie, the graphics are cool and realalistic, it has the f- word on it four different times and alot more cuse words but it's so awsome, I've probably have seen it more then 100 times
Amazing, keeping full suspense when group of marine biologist discover the cure for a serious disease from the brain tissue of 3 mako sharks. They become smarter and bigger. A true thriller, the Jaws of today. You want to watch it over and over again.
deep blue sea makes JAWS seem like a baby movie... well, JUST KIDDING! this is just as good as JAWS. great story line, and everything made sense. the sharks were mostly CGI . but overall, nice.
