Creature features need to be judged on their genre merits and Shark Night is one of the strangest I've seen. As is expected its jam packed with cliches and conventions and yet at the same time it defies the genre entirely. There is no nudity, no sex, barely any gore and very little violence. It's the Coke Zero of creature features. A group of college students spend a weekend away at a luxurious house on an isolated island in the middle of a salt lake. Soon they discover that the lake is infested with all kinds of species of sharks and the movie does what you would expect it to do. Lots of dumb decisions, stupid actions and typical stereotypes... There's the token black dude, the pet dog, red-neck locals, small town sheriff and fins breaking the water's surface... all stuff we've seen before and yet there's a few surprises that turn the movie in to something a bit different. It doesn't mess around and offers some unexpected kills and cool set-ups... its just a shame that the camera flinches at every attack and you don't really see anything. I started watching it in 3D which was super boring but when I switched it back to 2D I was able to engage with it more. At the end of the day it's a fun flick... probably one for the novices... but it does lack punch.
