The Shallows

You had me at “Blake Lively in a bikini.”

But, while that was probably enough to get the greenlight from a studio, this slick twist on Jaws has a lot more going on, and it starts with its heroine.

Lively, showcasing her grit, action chops, and strong internal acting skills, goes toe-to-toe with a big ‘n nasty sea dweller after the toothy one traps her tantalizingly close to shore.

Her only companion for much of the film a roustabout seagull, our star proves to be surprisingly resilient, and more than capable of defending herself.

She is surfer, hear her roar.
