Phil’s Top 5… Shark Movies (Updated Inc. The Meg!)
Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five. This time out: Shark Movies
Close but no cigar: Jaws 2, Sharknado 2, Megashark Vs Giant Octopus, The Reef, Deep Blue Sea
5 – Open Water
Open Water is a cracking low budget shark movie that’s full of tension and tight direction. Another simple idea with a finned menace at it’s heart
4 – Sharknado
It’s a Shark. Tornado. A Sharknado. Yup it’s cheap, yup it’s silly but man it’s so much fun!
3 – The Meg
Its dumb, OTT and pretty much everything you’d expect from a Jason Statham vs A giant shark movie. Yup.
2 – The Shallows
With one lead, a shark and a very simple premise The Shallows makes you not want to go back in the water all over again.
1 – Jaws
Was there EVER going to be another one? Jaws is a near flawless Shark movie. Even if the plastic Shark Bruce didn’t want to play ball..
