What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Michael O'Sullivan quote iconIt's still not safe to go back in the water...

Cape Times
Todd McCarthy quote iconArtless piece of surf hokey stays in 'The Shallows'.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconWhile Jaws might have made viewers wonder what might be in the water around them if brave enough to go in, The Shallows will likely only have viewers wondering why they&rquot;re watching this rather than that classic again.
