Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this 3D horror movie -- in which college students are devoured by renegade sharks -- has lots of blood, but not as much as the even more brutal "torture porn" movies like Saw. The gore here is partly shown and partly suggested, but when it comes down to it, there's plenty of red stuff swirling in the water, along with severed limbs, chomping, and even an exploding shark. There's also fighting, stabbing, and shooting between humans, as well as brief partial nudity (partial glimpses of breasts while young women change). Sexual innuendo is strong; men ogle and objectify women, and everyone is clearly thinking about sex. Expect some use of language like "s--t" and "t-ts." College students drink lots of beer, and a local sheriff drinks beer and whisky, though no one appears drunk.

Sexual Content

Some partial nudity as two girls change into their bathing suits. They're seen from behind and slightly to the side (partial breasts are visible). Lots of sexual innuendo. A male character takes off his girlfriend's top in the water (nothing shown). Girls in bathing suits and short-shorts are ogled and objectified.


The gore actually isn't as overwhelming as it could be. Still, there's plenty of violence, and even though much of it is half-suggested and half-shown, there are lots of images of blood swirling around in the water as characters are eaten. One character emerges with an arm missing. A girl is devoured slowly by many tiny sharks. A boat explodes. Fights with knives and guns. Characters are shot.


Some use of words like "s--t" and "t-ts," as well as "douche," "hell," "damn," "goddamn," "oh my God," "bitch," "vagina," "ass," "prick," and "junk" (in reference to a penis).

Social Behavior

This is just a giant blood feast. The villains are truly without morals, and the heroes, even if they're nice people, aren't very interesting. Viewers may start rooting for the sharks to get their dinner.


A case of Red Bull energy drink is prominently on display. Characters drink a lot of Budweiser beer.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

College students drink a lot of beer and some hard liquor while partying at a beach house, but they never appear drunk. The drinking mostly stops when the shark attacks begin. The local sheriff is seen drinking beer and whisky.
