About this Film

The Shallows

ODEON says...
When Nancy seeks out a secluded beach that her mother had told her to visit, everything seems perfect. But when a shark enters ‘The Shallows’, she finds herself stranded.

She’s stuck on a rock 200 yards from shore. The other surfers nearby have been killed. Escape seems impossible. It’s only a short way to safety, but she can’t possibly swim faster than a shark, forcing her into a battle of wills and ingenuity in order to survive. 

A white-knuckle thriller starring Blake Lively, be careful in ‘The Shallows’ – you never know what could be beneath the surface.

Not thrilled

Reviewer: FrantuxDate: 2016-08-20

The movie is a decent watch but definitely not great. And Blake Lively does not really convince of her acting skills. Nice scenery and good drama at times. Also far-fetched at times.

Reviewer: Murtman78Date: 2016-08-17

Been looking forward to seeing this for a while but I went in thinking I'd be disappointed! Have to admit I was wrong! Very enjoyable!! The tension levels are high & build & build! The acting by Blake Lively is amazing and would deffo watch again!!!!

on tenterhooks..

brilliantly succinct , pared down , woman against nature thriller. even tho' its unusually short its brilliantly made. dont miss it

Jaws 5

Reviewer: Godfather Part 2Date: 2016-08-16

A really clever, tense, horrific yet heart-felt thriller. It could have been marketed as Jaws 5 and would rank as one of the best ones! I'll buy this one on Blu-Ray when it comes out. Really good film!
