Deep Blue Sea (director Renny Harlin in person!)

Sure, Jaws is cool and all, but you know what’s cooler than a giant killer shark? Genetically engineered super smart killer sharks, that’s what! Hollywood action-meister Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Mindhunters) knows how to deliver on a high concept premise, and Deep Blue Sea is Harlin delivering at his no-holds-barred best. With a stellar cast featuring Thomas Jane, LL Cool J, Stellan Skarsgard and Sam mutherfuckin’ Jackson, Harlin infuses a great B-movie set-up with his muscular chops, and the result is one of the most crowd-pleasing animal attack films of the ‘90s — and the only great shark movie since Jaws. Forget all those Sci-Fi Channel cheapies, ‘cause this is the real deal, overflowing with all the flesh-ripping, explosions and panicked swimming you deserve. Don’t miss this chance to see it with like-minded shark fin-atics, and best of all, Renny Harlin himself in person!
Dir. Renny Harlin, 1999, 35mm, 105 min.
