The Shallows 
Serviceable Thriller
2.5/4 stars

'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 beyond, just gets the job done in good fashion.
