Sharks, Samuel L. Jackson, and a Preaching Fool.

When the final credits role on some movies, you become a different person. Other films may not change you, but they at least make you think. Most movies are neither of the above, are made for pure entertainment, and are garbage. However, some pure entertainment flicks aren't all that bad. These are the mind candy films. DEEP BLUE SEA is such a film.

Like most suspense films, there is a lot of gore, some foul language, and a few useless scenes. Nevertheless, the plot is more believable than most suspense/action adventure films. However, none of that is important. There are three reasons to see DEEP BLUE SEA.

First, the sharks. JAWS is a far superior film. However, the sharks in that first blockbuster aren't all that real looking. In DEEP BLUE SEA, the sharks are more real and are anatomically correct.

Second, Samuel L. Jackson. His talent and prescence can make even the most worthless film somewhat watchable.

Finally, this is the first film of its type I have seen where the religious guy (Preacher) survives. Sure, Preacher has flaws; we all do. But his faith is real. Usually Hollywood kills off the religious person ASAP or makes them into a cowardly fool or unlikeable character that the audience wants to see killed. Not so in this film. It was nice to see something a little more positive for a change in this area.

Overall, not a bad film. It's a satisfying piece of mind candy.
