Malibu Shark Attack
"There was a shark in the parking lot." - random guy
release year: 2009
genre: SyFy monster
viewing setting: TV, 8/30/14
synopsis: Some prehistoric sharks emerge from the ocean bottom after an earthquake, and the resulting tsunami fills the streets with water, allowing the sharks to feed.
impressions: Sounds promising, but all that really happened is the sharks stalked two groups of people trapped in their near-the-beach flooded places. Well, I take that back: one shark leapt into the air to grab a victim off a dock. The humans were fairly stupid for the most part, and the sharks had these huge protruding snouts.
acting: A heavier-than-in-the-past Peta Wilson spends the entire movie looking worried and trying to decide which guy she wants to be with. The sharks also did a decent job.
final word: Worth watching once if you must see all shark movies, but nothing exceptional.
