It is a film that can be taken on its own terms, anchored by an intense central performance from Lively in a film hammered together by Hollywood’s premier genre problem-solver Jaume Collet-Serra. With financial and production limitations, the most heinous shark violence occurs off-screen, registered by Lively’s expressively weathered reaction shots, implying horrors beyond imagining.

Lively is never boring, though you’d be hard pressed to credit her for propping up this bad-luck yarn with her acting chops alone. What’s left, besides a 100-per-cent CGI shark? If you’re lucky, you are not plagued by the real-life questions that helplessly arise…

Moving from blissy, sun-kissed communion with nature to desperate hanging on for dear life, it is tactile in the extreme, attuned to the body in pleasure and pain, the latter especially in one of the more harrowing improvised field surgery scenes in memory. All this and a knockout avant-garde short in the closing credits!

  • chanandre's rating of the film The Shallows

    There's Del Rey's High By The Beach and there's Lively's Hell By The Beach. "Jaws" for the YouTube/Vine Drone/Go-Pro generation. A Bechdel Test alumnus, that boasts the best Lively performance to date (that two-story high extreme-close up of her sun-burnt face miserably whimpering her 'I'll miss you guys' on the verge of bleeding to death in a rock alone with Steven Seagull is one for the 10's books) + haunting score

  • J. O.'s rating of the film The Shallows

    Bechdel test this, solo performance that. Wasn't this also a Black List screenplay? Funny, considering the story was as gimmicky as it gets, the direction was boring at best, and the creature effects were laughably bad. So, why the hype? Because a marginally talented woman headed a lame thriller with a computer shark? Maybe studios should focus more on content and less on hype, and we'd get better fare.

  • Zachary T.'s rating of the film The Shallows

    Collet-Serra has long been a talented director doing his best with shit material; here he finally delivers a focused, spare, resourceful thriller, and one of the most purely entertaining, underrated films of the year. A typically riveting performance from Blake Lively, at her best here since "The Town." Labiano's cinematography is breathtaking; heavily saturated blood reds and ocean blues clash and coil eerily.

  • Palmat's rating of the film The Shallows

    As shark movies go, you could do a whole lot worse than this one. On the other hand this is no Jaws. The movie looks like a commercial, the music choices are terrible and the shark behaves in ways no shark would ever do. On the plus side, the script despite its shortcomings keeps things moving and it never gets boring. Lively is also pretty good but you get tired of her monologues. An OK time waster.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Shallows

    Jaume Collet-Serra cements his status as one of our reigning vulgar auteurs with "The Shallows," his most confident and accomplished thriller yet. A taut screenplay full of every conceivable complication and reversal is elevated by Collet-Serra's staggeringly beautiful imagery, like clouds of blood tainting pristine water or an ocean floor of jellyfish aglow at night. One of the summer’s most unheralded pleasures.

  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Shallows

    Perfect contemporary B-movie fare for the miserable heat and likely one of the best shark movies in the last ten years (which isn't hard with films like "Shark Night 3D," "Sharknado," and whatever the hell else populates the late-night SyFy, creature-feature lineup). Blake Lively gives a physical performance that's exhausting to watch to say the least, and the entire thing ALMOST makes you forget it's PG-13.

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film The Shallows

    Undeniably genre but a highly competent suspense thriller nonetheless - cinematography, acting, narrative development are all a delight.

  • ig_____or's rating of the film The Shallows

    Name a more iconic duo than Blake Lively and Steven Seagull. That's right, you can't. For all its shortcomings (and there are plenty!) this was still great for a Sunday afternoon with the family by the fireplace. Loved the unapologetic 90s vibe and that was the best "Come back! Come back!" since Kate Winslet on Titanic.
