THE SHALLOWS ★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Jaume Col­let-Serra. Star­ring Blake Lively Who is smarter: Blake Lively or a fish? We’re only be­ing a tiny bit face­tious: that’s the sky-high con­cept at the heart of this rea­son­ably en­ter­tain­ing, im­pru­dently daft aquatic thriller. The film passes the time agree­ably, but is sel­dom as nail-bit­ing as we might rea­son­ably ex­pect from a lean genre ex­er­cise fea­tur­ing a cir­cling dor­sal fin. The shark’s abil­i­ties are as in­con­sis­tent as its grudge against Lively is dogged and pro­nounced. Must be a Pretty Lit­tle Liars fan. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 83 min TB
