Deep Blue Sea 2 (2018) Film Review

deepBlueSea2PosterIt took 19 years, but “Deep Blue Sea” has received a sequel. Overshadowed by the release of “The Meg”, SyFy kicked off Sharknado Week this Sunday night with the television premiere of “Deep Blue Sea 2”. The sea is deep. The sea is blue. There is an underwater facility that gets infiltrated by sharks. Imagine “Alien”, but with sharks and nowhere near as suspenseful or good.

I would make a joke about how while underwater, no one can hear you scream, but a guy yells at a shark while diving and repels it. I would also like to point out that the same character drinks a vial of undisclosed liquid which causes his vision to temporarily fade into what I can only describe as a low-rate version of the intro from Breaking Bad. I found it funny, but I don’t think it is done for laughs. As far as shark movies that air on SyFy go, this is a solid choice. The main problem that “Deep Blue Sea 2” suffers from, aside from not having anything to do with the first movie, is that it has to live up to the scene in “Deep Blue Sea” where Samuel L. Jackson gets eaten by a shark. How do you top that?
