    HDR pops, plot not so much.

    If you are looking for a movie with GREAT ocean HDR which really pops, look no further. The scenes in this movie, especially the aerial shots are like WOW! Unfortunately the really isn't much of a story. If you took away the director trying to give all the great aerial shots this story could be told in a much shorter time. Unlike those books you read that are reduced to a point people generally complain too much is left out, in my opinion this movie was intentionally was dragged out. So its not for everyone. Now with that being said, I going to recommend this version because if you are reading this as a 4K review and you are looking for visually stunning 4K HDR then you will love this movie.

    Wasn’t looking for the original jaws but was hoping for more realism. Seems like this movie was made for a very young audience. Too many unrealistic scenes and too little plot.

    Buetiful scenery, but a little weak on plot, I quess if I was a lot younger and wanted to watch a girl in a bikini on a rock for 2 hours it might have been better

    I was expecting a better story line but what I got was mediocre acting and a predictable story. The best thing about the movie is the vivid colors of the ocean

    This movie had a lot of great reviews so I was disappointed. If you go in not expecting much you might like it more.

    Decent 4k transfer of an angry shark film. Highly unrealistic super predator film that is still somewhat entertaining.

    DVD quality is amazing, movie leaves a lot to be desired. If you want cheesy, buy this movie.

    It a bad movie, but somewhat predictable. Worth a watch but I don't see myself watching it more than once.

    The movie itself was predictable and boring. I mainly bought it as a visual reference for the 4k display

    This movie was slow. It did not have the same heart as movies like castaway.
