Searching for a cure to Alzheimer's disease, a group of scientists on an isolated research facility become the prey, as a trio of intelligent sharks fight back.

Deep Blue Sea , released almost 50 years after Jaws , made a significant impact on shark movies, becoming a cult classic and perfect popcorn entertainment. The movie embraces a B-movie feel, with campy dialogue, nonsensical science, and unexpected plot twists that distinguish it from other late '90s action movies.

 Despite its silliness, Deep Blue Sea delivers thrills with well-paced action sequences, strong production design, and an evocative score, making it a memorable film of its time.

In a 2016 retrospective, Wired editor Brian Raftery considered Deep Blue Sea "the greatest non-Jaws shark movie of all time" He remarked that, within a genre that had been dominated by Jaws, Deep Blue Sea features "genuinely inventive" action sequences, "nicely rounded-out, human" characters, and memorable death scenes. Raftery also noted that the film was among the last of its kind, describing it as "[A]n R-rated B-movie, full of gore and chaos and smart-stupidness, but with a big-budget, big-cast sheen"
