The Shallows

A solitary medical student (Blake Lively) is pursued by a great white shark near a secluded Mexican beach and is forced to improvise to save her life. Director Jaume Collet-Serra and screenwriter Anthony Jaswinski at times appear to struggle with sustaining tension while giving their heroine unexpected tasks.
Watch out for: Some gore, fleeting rough and crude language.
Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA: PG-13
