Remarkably watchable

Shark movies, how many good ones are out there? Well, after the obvious the list is pretty baron. However, Bait is remarkably watchable. I was quite surprised to find myself glued to the screen after over half an hour of character show and tell and only the opening shark scene to reel us in. The CGI and casting are the only two factors that plead with me to turn the movie off. For a thirty-mil budget the shark animations were truly inadequate, yet Bait managed to survive considering. Which is more than can be said for most civilians who aren't trapped in a supermarket given the state of that Australian coastline. Matthew Lessall and Ben Parkinson (Casting) need a job chat, some sideline characters offer absolutely, indescribably the worst performances I have ever seen. Listening to the psychotic Aussie robber, frantic store manager and squabbling couple in their car really made me shudder with anger. More time establishing deeper character backgrounds instead would have pleased, although they hold up pretty well for a shark flick.

Despite some teeth grinding actors and reminders of Bruce from Finding Nemo, Bait is visually very pleasing and makes for a worthy shark movie.

7/10.

Spill, aisle six.

The title of the film is cleverly called Bait, because the writers couldn't think of a clever way to work "Shark" into a title that hasn't been used. The first 23 minutes of the film establishes the characters. Josh (Xavier Samuel) is our main character. His best friend is killed in the opening scene as he is engaged to his sister. She dumps him because... it makes for a better story. While all our main characters are in a grocery store and a robbery and shoplifting is going on, a tsunami strikes bringing with it a couple of very very hungry Great Whites. The scenes bounce between a flooded store with survivors on top of shelves and the parking garage with other trapped individuals.

It is a question of who will live, who will die and how high will sharks jump out of water. Kudos on the tsunami thing, but all in all it is just your average Jaws III quality film.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

A great underrated flick...

For a modern b-movie, Bait is amazing!....Although shark films have been tarred with the Sharknado series of films which are not all that fun and just made for the sake of it( that seemingly being that particular franchise's main joke), most probably due to this Bait has been overlooked.The underwater shots and camera-work are amazing andatmospheric and need more praise lavished on it. Some of the CGI is obvmade for 3D, and alas I have not seen the 3D version! But despite a few things looking slightly cartoonish it works fine and I had no problemswith it whatsoever...There's some great imaginative scenes in the film that utilise its unique setting to it's full extent and the couple in the underwater car's conversations are hilarious! Bait is not to be taken seriously and is obviously made for pure entertainment - and it delivers to the max on that level.....
