Movie Review: BAIT 3D (Blu-ray+DVD Combo Pack)
Shark movies are always hit or miss with most of them being very forgettable and cheesy so it’s pretty cool when one comes around that you’re able to watch and actually enjoy more than one time and BAIT 3D is that movie.
We watch a tsunami completely engulf a beach shore in BAIT 3D that destroys everything in the area and kills off just about everybody leaving a small group of people trapped in a flooded supermarket with some really unwelcome guests, killer sharks! There are several side stories going on as the movie plays along, we follow a couple and their relationship issues, there’s also some friends trapped on the parking deck that is also flooded and has a hungry predator waiting on them to make a wrong move plus the movie even has some thieves who wanted to rob the place but picked an entirely wrong time to do so. We watch the trapped survivors come up with some creative ways to stay alive and fight back while a few others ultimately become fish food along the way. All in all, a lot of fast paced, blood soaked fun!
Director Kimble Rendall brings this movie to life and there are some really cool shots of the sharks that 3D will pick up but unfortunately I only get to watch it in 2D. I can say that he catches some really fun shots of the sharks and some of the cool underwater kill scenes! The small cast, including Phoebe Tonkin, Alex Russell, Sharni Vinson, Xavier Samuel, Julian McMahon, Cariba Heine, Lincoln Lewis, Alice Parkinson, Dan Wyllie, Damien Garvey, Richard Brancatisan and Martin Sacks also breath life into this cool little movie. You wonder how much can they actually do with a movie that takes place in a flooded supermarket but it’s pulled off very well and there really isn’t ever a dull moment. The SFX in this movie are also done really well!
Bottom line is, this Bait 3D [Two-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD] was lots of fun watching and I definitely think you’ll have a good time checking it out, especially if you already enjoy killer shark movies! The movie drops on Tuesday, September 18th.
