  • Marrying environmental themes with bloody thrills, this Gallic entry into the shark attack canon ultimately lands on the right side of ridiculous fun.

    It unfolds like a fairly classy suspense film about a rarely seen threat. It does not look cheap in the way Sharknado did, for instance. It’s quite competently shot and edited, it’s tense, and it’s frightening. In other words, it gets the job done.

    Under Paris winds up feeling like a disparate blend of overly serious, familiar eco-horror and a zanier action horror movie with gory B-movie impulses.

    Dumb yet creative, preachy yet thrilling, this horror/disaster movie takes its outlandish premise to all the places that fans of the killer shark genre will appreciate.

    There are moments that betray this inevitability, of course, but its tone never hesitates. Played completely straight, no one in this film seems to notice how ridiculous their predicament is.

    Under Paris would have done better as a shark film if it picked a lane. It was pretending to be a story about grief & then one about ignorant governments and then another story about how humans endanger wildlife.

    Without soul or suspense, this shark thriller will remind you of Jaws every step of the way.
