Not much bite to Shark Night 3D 

Cheap thrills are the most you should expect from this fishy horror

Released at the tail end of the summer, Shark Night 3D tries to capture the popularity of last year's aquatic-horror comedy Piranha 3D, but fails due to cheap special effects and a lack of humour. The plot is simple enough: A group of university students go to an island cottage on a Louisiana lake, but when sharks mysteriously break through the floodgates, they must escape before the feeding frenzy begins. Director David Ellis does a good job creating tension with underwater shots of victims before the limb-gnawing, but the CG sharks look unrealistic when compared to animatronic counterparts. This is only exacerbated by the use of 3D, focusing more on bouncing, bikini-clad girls than actual shark attacks and cheapening the film's thrills.
