    • Excerpt: The Shallows may look like it’s all for show, but this tropical nightmare quickly flashes a wicked bite as well.

    • Excerpt: The film is ultimately about Nancy surviving her own psyche rather than the shark and in those terms The Shallows is great—a gorgeous setting with gorgeous actors up against a clock counting towards life or death. While not quite Collet-Serra’s best, it’s another pulse-pounding feather in his cap.

    • Excerpt: Navigating halfway between blatantly bonkers and bitingly brilliant, The Shallows sadly got stranded in beautiful but bush-league.

    • Excerpt:  For what it is, The Shallows is just good enough to stare at for 87 minutes, and if that’s all you’re looking for then it’s more or less perfect.
