Sharks. Halle Berry in a bikini. More sharks. Should be fun, right? Not if you take this first full trailer for John Stockwell’s “Dark Tide” at face value. Actor-turned-director Stockwell apparently can’t get enough of the water. The trailer boasts Stockwell’s previous credits on the surfing movie “Blue Crush” and the undersea treasure under (and Jessica Alba-starring) flick “Into the Blue” just in case you don’t think he knows what he’s doing out there. For some reason, though, there just doesn’t seem to be all that much going on here. So what, the old couple turns out to be killers? Maybe they’ll chase Halle and the French guy around the boat with their inhalers while sharks circle in the water. Now that would be entertainment!
Sara (Halle Berry) is a modern-day adventurer, deeply drawn to close encounters with the magnificent White Sharks who rule the primal predator shore of isolated Guadalupe Island. When her husband chooses ambition over his wife’s safety in a split-second encounter with the jaws of death, her marriage nearly breaks apart. A year later, a monsoon season voyage back to the same island becomes an escalating series of terrifying underwater confrontations and gut-wrenching emotional challenges. Testing her courage in the face of nature’s ultimate terror, she shows herself as tough as the men she is attracted to – and perhaps the bravest of all. Sara endures and changes the terms of the contest with mankind’s most feared underwater predator.
Also starring Olivier Martinez, Ralph Brown, Luke Tyler, Mark Elderkin, Thoko Ntshinga, and Sizwe Msutu.
