Performance

this movie is not known to be good, it has its flaws but it has its moments, reminded me of Jaws a little bit. This is not a movie that will leave you bored out of your mind. It is good movie to kill time and have a good laugh. Acting is good, and the ending was funny and I did not see that coming. This movie being in 3d should make it better

After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the areas new razor-toothed residents.

Editors Note
Note HAUTE TENSION and HILLS HAVE EYES director Alexandre Aja pays homage to the films that made him fall in love with the horror genre by helming this comedic remake of director Joe Dante's 1978 JAWS parody. Lake Victoria may look peaceful, but beneath the placid waters of this painterly lake lurks a deadly menace. A powerful underwater tremor has released scores of man-eating prehistoric fish into the waters, and now it's up to a group of unlikely heroes to band together and defeat the razor-toothed predators. With time running out and the aquatic carnivores taking over, one brave heroine (Elisabeth Shue) will risk everything to save the lake and prevent her family from becoming fish food. Richard Dreyfuss, Ving Rhames, Jerry O'Connell, and Adam Scott star in the Dimension Films production.
Reviews
Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's a very funny turn by Christopher Lloyd, who does piranha risk assessment for the sheriff in his best Doc BACK TO THE FUTURE style." 08/20/2010
Box Office 3 stars out of 5 -- "Ruthless and ridiculous, Aja's horror comedy has a purity of vision." 08/20/2010
Entertainment Weekly "The movie should have been called JAWS GONE WILD....This MTV apocalypse delivers the goods." -- Grade: B- 09/03/2010
Hollywood Reporter "[A] pitch-perfect, guilty-pleasure serving of late-summer schlock that handily nails the tongue-in-cheek spirit of the Roger Corman original." 08/19/2010
Rolling Stone "[S]hamelessly entertaining....Aja tips his hat to Steven Spielberg and then it's off to the low-rent races." 08/26/2010
Movieline "Ah, the pleasures of unapologetic, good-natured exploitation....Aja gets the tone just right..." 08/20/2010
Sight and Sound "The top joke for film fans is Richard Dreyfuss' cameo as a fisherman....This is a spirited, hard-to-hate hackwork from Alexandre Aja..." 11/01/2010
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "Sheriff Elisabeth Shue does one great stepping-from-one-upturned-boat-to-the-next stunt..." 01/07/2010
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] some fun cameos and imaginative splatter..." 02/01/2011
