The Shallows UHD Review



Sharks have been getting a bad rap with the oddly successful Sharknado series of films (and the many other shark movies) that have appeared on SyFy over the last few years. Director Jaume Collet-Serra's The Shallows is a refreshing thriller that takes it subject matter a bit more seriously, providing for a tense 85 minute ride.

Todd:

Thanks for the review.

While I won't be buying this in UHD, your description of the film itself (somewhere between Jaws and Sharknado!) is nudging me towards a Blu purchase! :D

There's a lot within your description that makes this film attractive for me: Blake Lively (for one!), the short running time, the fact that you were engrossed throughout, the excellent audio track, etc.

This 4K/UHD release is another great example that not all discs have to be derived from a native 4K source to look great on 4K/UHD disc. A very good film with some fantastic visuals.
