Bait 3D



(2012) **1/2

A freak occurrence creates a tidal wave that floods a local Australian supermarket trapping all the customers.  Oh yeah, and a Great White shark.  The survivors come from all walks of life (i.e. Breakfast Club) and together they must figure out a way to survive this briny menace while learning how to get along.  The supermarket is perched on a parking garage where others are similarly trapped.

That’s pretty much all you need to know.


Bait 3D is the Burning Bright of shark movies.  Less Spielberg and more Corman, Bait 3D is much more fun than it deserves to be.  The (mostly good) actors play it straight and the action is brisk and gory.  A few CG moments don’t work but overall the shark attacks are quite effective.  I didn’t catch it in 3D but I can tell it would’ve been fun.

Sounds like a better version of Sharknado!

I like the idea of Breakfast Club on sharks. Sounds fun!

Briny menace is going to be my favorite description of the day. I vow to find a way to work it into a conversation today.

Too bad Rudyard Kipling didn't live long enough to see "Burning Bright" envisioned with a shark.

Briny menace! I haven't seen this but I wonder if it's one of the kind of crisis you can just wait out. I wonder that a lot about zombie flicks -- just decompose already!

you can't wait out a great white apparently.

your description sounds better than the 2.5 star rating would indicate!
