The first ĺ of this movie is Halle Berry trying to overcome her fear of sharks after a shark attackÖ a shark attack that didnít really happen to her. So her character, Kate, takes up giving whale and seal watching tours on her boat. When that doesnít prove to be very lucrative, she accepts a shady offer from a rich tourist to take him swimming with sharks. Yeah, cause thatís going to end well.
As I mentioned, this movie is 114 minutes long and nothing actually happens until the last 20 minutes or so of the film. The whole synopsis revolves around the group winding up in Shark Alley, but they donít actually wind up in Shark Alley until the very end of the film, leaving you with about 90 minutes of ďHuh?Ē Because really, everything in this movie is pretty well pointless. There are several scenes that actually make NO sense whatsoever in the film and thinking back on them, it actually took me a moment to remember if they were even from the same film.
Halle Berry hasnít really been up to much of anything for a while, so I canít blame the gal for wanting to pick up a paycheque and get a fancy, all-expenses-paid trip to South Africa, but really now. Catwoman, Gothika and now DARK TIDE (not to mention one of the worst lines ever as Storm in X-Men)? Halle, you may want to think about retiring before things get even worse for you.
