"Deepest, bluest, my hat is like a shark's fin..."
Release date when? Love the first film will be getting this!
Looks pretty good.
I really enjoyed the first one, but it's a little strange that it took almost 20 years to do a sequel. Is this a theatrical or DTV release? I would assume DTV as it doesn't appear to have much star power attached to it.
It will premiere on SyFy channel sometime this year, with a Warner Bros Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital release around the same time. Probably similar to Warner's release of Rest Stop, which aired on SyFy a week or two before it hit DVD.
April 17th for disc. Don't see anything about a SyFy airing yet.
Special features include the following:
Returning to the Deep – The Making of Deep Blue Sea 2 (Featurette) – Go behind the scenes with the cast and crew of Deep Blue Sea 2 as they film the highly-anticipated sequel.
Deep Blue Sea 2: Death by Shark (Featurette) – In this wildly fun featurette, the cast and crew of Deep Blue Sea 2 discuss their characters’ demise and the jump-out-of-your-seat moments in the film.
Deep Blue Silliness (Gag Reel) – A collection of fun outtakes and bloopers from the feature film showcasing the cast and production team.
Deleted Scenes – A few filmed moments that didn’t make the final cut of Deep Blue Sea 2. But we know you still want to see them.
The cover looks like the girl is about to be gang raped by a pack of horny great whites. Classic.
I did a survey for this movie a while ago and helped vote on the cover. This cover isn't great, but the other possible options were much worse.
Aside from generally being a terrible Photoshopped cover with obviously inaccurate perspective, I most like how they couldn't even be bothered to match the colour temperature of the blue light in the water compared to the warm light of the girl.
Probably a goof, but Amazon lists the running time as 72 mins.
Watched this, this afternoon, it's enjoyable, it's not reinventing the wheel, but I don't think anyone here is surprised.
I thought for a TV movie the production values are quite high, acting is decent enough, a few people go a little overboard, but nothing terrible.
The CGI and prosthetics are all good, a couple of nice gore scenes, all in all perfect with a few beers and friends on a Saturday night.
Had expected this to air on SyFy prior to it's disc release, but apparently not.
Gonna pick up the DVD this Tuesday at Walmart.
Got my copy today gonna watch both films tomorrow.
1st review http://birthmoviesdeath.com/2018/04/17/deep-blue-sea-2-review-sharks-are-never-boring
I just watched it and wasn't a fan. SyFy probably passed on it because TV movies need a hook in the first 20 minutes (before the first commercial break) and it's nearly an hour into the movie before anything happens. Which would be 1 hour 20 mins of 2 hours on SyFy. The facility doesn't even start flooding until after the 45 minute mark.
The last 15 minutes or so were fun, but by then it's kind of too little too late. It's pretty much a beat for beat retread of the first film, only cheaper, bland, and tame. You don't really see much of the attacks, the PG-13 Shark Night 3D was probably more gruesome. The fun just isn't there.
Lead guy was from John Dies At The End and the lead actress was from Boogeyman 2 (which is a vastly superior straight-to-DVD sequel than this).
As a sequel to Deep Blue Sea, it's pretty bad, but it might fit with the Shark Attack franchise. That said, I probably preferred Shark Attack 2 and 3 to this.
Wait for Netflix or cable. Movies like this are meant to be seen for free on SyFy.
Blu-ray review: http://doblu.com/2018/04/25/deep-blue-sea-2-blu-ray-review/
It's not the best film in the world granted, but it's nowhere near as bad as they made out. It's a fun ride, granted better with the addition of beer and an audience!
