A tightly wound and thrilling example of old-fashioned B-movie filmmaking, The Shallows features a good performance from Blake Lively and some well timed scary moments. The photography of the Mexican location is downright stunning. The scares and the action are both worth watching on the big screen.

The seagull definitely deserves a nomination.

"I'm not totally alone. I've got this little dude, Steven Seagull, here keeping me company."

Serviceable Thriller

'The Shallows' is way better than the typical shark movie. It's a self-contained thriller/survival story that pretty much never stops after the underwater threat is revealed. A short runtime and fast pace further accentuate the immediacy of the situation. Our heroine is intelligent and strong willed, making fear for her safety come easily. The events never become outlandish. There's not much suspension of disbelief needed. The movie just gets right down to business delivering some tense encounters. It's all pretty entertaining. Some scenes overreach when attempting a '127 Hours' type of emotion. I was locked into the action at every turn, but the character moments were not as investing. Blake Lively holds the movie together serviceably well. Nothing here really goes above and b...
