A Basic Shark Movie
"Rick Dayner" (Phillip Clark) is a marine-biologist who is working for an oil company and happens to see a great white shark in the same waters where divers are trying to fix a pipe near an offshore oil rig. Although the divers are pulled up they choose to ignore his advice afterward and continue their work. This results in Rick quitting his job in anger. Not long afterward one of the divers is killed and another badly injured. This not only halts all work on the underwater pipe but the oil company also puts out a $20,000 reward for whoever can kill the shark. More than a few people are interested to include Rick and a man named "Cabo Mendoza" (Richard Yniguez) who just happens to be the brother of the diver severely injured by the shark. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a basic shark movie which I suppose was adequate enough for the time spent. The special effects were minimal and all of the shark footage looked like it came from a National Geographic documentary. Likewise, the script was just as basic and the character development needed some work as well. Still, for a made-for-television movie it wasn't too bad and for that reason I have rated this film as only slightly below average.
