Movie Review – The Shallows (2016)

A shark takes a bite out of Blake Lively’s phat ass and comes back for more.

BQB here with a review of The Shallows.


OK, so the shark doesn’t take a bite out of Blake’s bodacious booty though let’s be honest, could anyone have blamed him? I mean not an actual “bite” bite but still.

Hmm…that joke didn’t land? That’s ok. Nothing new for the Bookshelf Battle Blog.

The set-up? Nancy (Blake), depressed over the loss of her mother to cancer, takes a sojourn from medical school to do some surfing in a shallow cove.

A shark bites her leg and then from thereon it’s about two hours of Blake swimming from rock to rock, trying to think up ways to outfox the finned freak.

I knew very little of this film going into it but it was an enjoyable surprise.  I assume it was low budget and if so, it is an example of a lot being done with very little.  A cove. Special shark effects. A hot, scantily clad chick.

I liked it. And though the Blakester never gets totally nekkid, she’s in a bikini throughout.

Oh wait. I’m not supposed to notice those things.

STATUS: Shelf-worthy and worth a trip to the theater, not just for wide-screened shots of Blake’s badonka donk but also for scary shark attacks!

    Best Shark vs. Hot Chick Movie of 2016

    BQB’s Shelfy Awards continue. I didn’t think much of the Shallows going into it, but I love it when a low budget movie yields big results. It’s pretty much Blake on a rock avoiding a shark for most of the movie, but it still provides a lot of suspense. iTunes had it for 99 cents the other day, I don’t know if they will do that forever but you might check it out.
