Consensus: A joyless excursion into the water that doesn't even produce good gore or nudity thanks to the neutered PG-13 rating.

Nick Pinkerton
Village Voice

Shark Night, handled with impersonality by Snakes on a Plane pilot David R. Ellis, aspires to nothing more or less than carrying along an audience through a string of unremarkable kills, often involving high-jumping fish.

The result is a movie that isn't crummy, exactly, just blah: when the freakiest teeth on screen belong not to one of Walt Conti's animatronically realized sharks but to a good-ol'-boy called Red, you know you have a problem.

Glenn Dunks

When I wasn't laughing at the scenes of sharks leaping out of the water to attack their prey (in trees! on jetskis!) I was questioning the happy coincidence of a runaway motorboat heading directly towards a pier littered with flammable gas tanks.

A second round is out of the question. Unless, of course, they called it "Gladys Knight 3D.'' Then all is forgiven.

Robert Abele

Sharks have it bad enough as endangered, misunderstood predators with a terrible public relations image without seeing their serial-killing stardom drowned out by hammy acting and torture-porn villainy.

An atrocious waste of time, this "Night" is one you'll quickly forget.

The sharks are rubber and the performances are wooden and that's just about all you need to know.

It doesn't even live up to the minimal promises of the title: There isn't enough shark action, it mostly takes place during the day, and the 3-D only asserts itself in a couple of shots.

Predictable. Disposable. Listless. Boring. This is not how you make great horror films.

Only saw it in 2D. What a shame and a waste a film like this should never be PG-13/15?! Ruined it for the target audience. The cgi was ok but the story, gore… More
