"Shark Zone" review
Shark Zone (2003)
Directed by Danny Lerner
Writing credits Danny Lerner Sam Parish
Dean Cochran .... Jimmy Wagner/Young Jimmy Wagner
Alan Austin .... Mayor John Cortell/Andrew Wagner
Brandi Sherwood .... Carrie Wagner
So there's a bunch of sharks in a zone. A Shark Zone. The mayor sends out the world's worst shark hunter to clean up the Shark Zone. His modus operandi is to look into his binoculars and make pained expressions as every living soul he knows gets chewed on by sharks.
There were a lot of shark attacks in this flick. The sharks were gluttonous pigs. They couldn't eat enough bathers at their beach buffet. Most of the shark attacks were film clips of real sharks swimming and then a lot of thrashing and yelling and red water to simulate the kill.
"Shark Zone" has its B-movie points. I always enjoy a good, bloody shark attack. Just don't expect much in the way of logic or originality. Expect shark munching and a clueless shark hunter.
SCORE: 1.5 out of 4 zoning sharks
