The body of the drunk Mexican that collapses on the beach disappears when the two surfers return to the beach; it is never seen again for the remainder of the movie. One would think the two surfers would have discovered the partially-eaten body, as would have the boy kicking the soccer ball and the boy's father. See more »
My God, the movie is bad. I'll just point a few things and rest my case:
The shark in the movie is big and behaves like a human psychopath. The bit on the woman's leg does not match it's teeth. A shark of that size can chew steel cables. It's bite can tear flesh and muscles from the bone and can sever limbs. Yet the woman has only suffered a mere flesh wound.
After only a few hours, the woman is hungry enough to eat crabs and gross stuff, which make her puke. This is stupid. Hunger makes you so desperate after a few days, not hours.
Birds have frail articulations and many tiny bones in their wings. The bones are spongy and frail. It's hard to arrange a bird's articulation even for a veterinary surgeon, yet she does it like it's her hobby.
