    Hurricane Heist is in that caliber of film.
    YES.

    It deserves everlasting life as a midnight movie until the end of time.

    I feel like we've seen several sizes of this shark, so I assume there is more than 1.

    There was one poster which was a riff on the Jaws poster, but the biggest shark on that poster seemed hugely disproportionate and more like promotional material. I don't think we'll get to see that size in the movie.

    Although I must add that in the books Meg does indeed give birth to offspring although not in book 1.

    This is a very stupid movie to have been cut down to PG13.

    As if it’s going to be some blockbuster because 13 year olds can legally get in the door. I’ve never been to a theatre that gave two craps about a kid getting into a restricted movie, unless they’re clearly 6 years old.

    What a dumb, dumb, DUMB move.

    The last couple years some of my favorite movies have been that year's token shark film. The Shallows was awesome, and 47 Meters Down was fantastic. And this looks loads of fun. Really looking forward to it.

    BTW, the trend continues. I believe they are making a 48 Meters Down due out next year.

    Not sure that movie needs a sequel (certainly doesn't leave itself open for one at least), but I'll probably be there, lol.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the shallows, but I just didn’t care for 47 meters down. I can give it another try, but I was not impressed.

    The Shallows was the stronger of the two.

    Yeah same here. I predicted and really hated the end of 47MD. Could've been something special without the nonsense.

    I'm split on it, too. It's fun. . .but it would have been more engaging if it were campier. My review goes up if not some time today, definitely tomorrow.
