Bait 3D (2012)

Synopsis: A freak tsunami traps shoppers at a coastal Australian supermarket inside the building - along with a 12 foot Great White Shark.

I bet you thought sharks were only a threat in the ocean. Pffft...fool. Not only have sharks been known to walk on land but they have been spotted at supermarkets taking meat without paying for it!

Bait 3D is that movie. The opening scene shows the viciousness of these creatures then there's about 30 minutes of so called "story" and then the tsunami hits. So right after the opening awesomeness, just go ahead and do the dishes, take the dog outside, get a load of laundry going, and then come sit back down. Nothing of any importance happens until the tsunami hits. After that 2 sharks are washed ashore and are themselves trapped in a supermarket FILLED with delicious people.

The rest of the movie is spent watching everyone get devoured in fairly creative ways (one featuring a hilarious dog sacrifice) and also trying to figure out how to kill the sharks. I don't really need to go into too much detail, the rest is pretty standard fun for situations such as these.

I wish this would have hit a theatre near me. The 3D would have been a lot of fun, watching it in 2D makes it even more fun. I've always thought movies made for 3D were pretty stupid because they will always be terrible immediately after they leave the theatre. The cheese factors quadruples once the 3D is no longer a factor.

The special effects are pretty good. I wouldn't say they are astounding but not too bad. The CGI is fair at times and terrible at others. I'd assume that's the 3D's fault but it could just be a budget issue. The pacing is good after the tsunami hits and there are hoards of expendable stereotypes just ripe for the picking.

This movie takes a while to get moving but when it does it's a pretty fun ride. If you're a shark connoisseur and looking for a change of scenery, Bait 3D is your destination!
