Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This toothless shark thriller lacks B-movie fun."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"With its one-dimensional characters and lack of an engaging plot, Dark Tide will test the patience of even the most patient moviegoer."
‑ Jeff Beck, We Got This Covered
"The sharks themselves are the only ones to emerge with credit from this."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
"Making Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus look like Jaws, it is totally lost at sea."
‑ Jamie Russell, Total Film
"This thriller isn't an outright embarrassment, but it nonetheless suffers from wobbly dramatic tension and an overlong running time."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screen International
"The only palpable emotion from "Dark Tide" is sadness for Berry, treading water in dreary efforts like this."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Looking more prepared for a walk down a Milan catwalk than the grizzled sea-salt she's supposed to be, Berry provides a dull filling for Stockwell's risible shark sandwich."
‑ Eddie Harrison, The List
"If you watch closely during John Stockwell's godawful shark-attack thriller, you can see Halle Berry's Oscar sinking ever so slowly into the waters off Cape Town."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"What these filmmakers did was basically take all of [Jaws's positive] elements and found their polar opposites to put together a film that is one of the most tedious movie-going experiences of recent memory."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Pretty Halle Berry! Pretty water! Pretty pictures! Pretty freaking boring!"
‑ JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"It is often impossible to figure out what's going on."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A movie that was more Snores than Jaws."
‑ Grant Rollings, Sun Online
"The cast works hard, but not even the climactic tempest can whip up much excitement."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"Here's hoping Berry had a great time filming this action thriller near Capetown. Because this shark story has no bite."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"Appears to have everything a filmmaker would need for a little exploitative venture. Leave it to John Stockwell and his unimaginative directorial touch to spoil the potential fun."
