A remote research vessel houses a team of scientists that are performing illegal experiments in order to find a cure for Alzheimer's Disease, using genetically-modified sharks to extract a key enzyme from their brains. The tests create a breed of vicious and highly intelligent man-eaters that break free and terrorize the crew. Viewers were initially turned off to the idea of introducing computerized creatures in to the shark film, but what many fail to recognize are the incredibly realistic designs given to the robotic, radio-controlled sharks that were used in-camera. The film is also (justly) criticized for the questionable casting of rapper LL Cool J and for several of its over-the-top death scenes, but when one considers the alternatives found in SHARK ATTACK and other low-budget pictures, DEEP BLUE SEA is the only choice when it comes to killer sharks in the post-JAWS era. It is easy to overlook its many flaws and downright silly moments for the fast-paced action and unexpected gore, making this a guilty pleasure for any of the shark fans out there!
