Though she is stranded only 200 yards from shore, survival proves to be the ultimate test of wills, requiring all of Nancy's ingenuity, resourcefulness, and fortitude. Written by

Well, This movie is the worst movie I have seen this year. I just saw Blake Lively in Cafe Society, and there she really could show what she is capable of. In The Shallows the director only showed us what a fine figure she has for her age. I was never afraid of the shark and sometimes laughed because it all was so ridiculous. With sky-ping and speaking to a camera the director wanted to give a modern touch to the movie but that was simply to fill the gaps of the story and nearly make me walk out of the theatre. I had to think a lot of Jaws, the movie of Steven Spielberg of 1975. Why are the old movies so much better than the new movies? Please stop with these nonsense and show us the old movies. I felt very sorry for Blake Lively that she had to appear in such a bad movie, where nothing happens. What a disappointment. The only good thing about the movie was that it not lasted more than 80 minutes.
