| Film Synopsis |
Emma Collins, an eminent marine biologist, and her crew have set up a mid-ocean laboratory over a sunken island town in the ocean where they are observing the first known Great White mating area. Unfortunately, the enhanced Bull Sharks that escaped in Deep Blue Sea 2 are also there with their own evolutionary goal: cross-breeding with the bigger, faster Great Whites. The mission’s patron, Richard Lowell, believes that the Bull Sharks contain the key to intelligence enhancement, which he secretly intends to sell for big profits. Now, Emma and her crew are trapped on crumbling stilt houses mere feet over the ocean, caught between predators above and below the water.
| Video |
DEEP BLUE SEA 3 is delivered on a 1080p transfer. It offers rich color and a slight warmth from grading. Every water shot in the ocean looks amazing. Very clear. Black levels though never hit their mark.
| Audio |
DEEP BLUE SEA 3 wins with a solid DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio mix. Dialogue is clean and clear throughout. Levels are spot on. Major action scenes are most notable with explosions going into all speakers.
| Special Features |
Deep Blue Sea 3: Fight to the Death - Director John Pogue, stunt coordinator Vernon Willemse, marine coordinator Jason Martin, and a few of the lead and supporting actors briefly talk about preparing for their physical roles, scuba training, the on-set experience, underwater fights, and more.
Sinking Sets and Sharks: Making Deep Blue Sea 3 - This like-minded featurette includes a few more key cast and crew members, who mostly talk about the set construction and a few special effects shots.
| Overall Reaction |
DEEP BLUE SEA 3 is a highly entertaining film! It does take a while before the sharkfest happens. But when that first kill comes, you're in for a bloody mess. The disc has an alright transfer with a solid audio mix. Bonus features are slim. This is a mass improvement from "Deep Blue Sea 2" and I recommend this one for all you shark fans out there.
