The Reef is the best shark film since Jaws and Jaws 2. A lot of people will look at the trailer and think it is like Open Water. Well, you know what it is about people stuck in the middle of the ocean, that is where the comparisons will stop. This film is more tense, and more shark moments. And has a ending that Open Water could never deliver. You will sit there and think about this film well into the credits. It leaves you with a lot to stomach, esp. the shark scenes. One involving a floating and someone swimming towards it and a shark fin racing, that will make you jump as will another scene that gets too close for comfort. This film is a must.

Forget Open Water..this is the real dealReviewed byjames_depaoloVote: 9/10
Based around real life events that happened in 1983, The Reef is Australian director Andrew Traucki's follow up to his crocodile horror Black Water.
Truth here is that if you have seen the likes of Open Water, Adrift, Black Water and the under valued Frozen, then this really doesn't hold any surprises, it is what it is, a bunch of friends ending up in a battle for survival as one of mother nature's predators stalks and homes in for the kill. However, this is done with some style, it looks very nice, is well performed (even though the characters are thinly drawn), the use of underwater sequences, which has us peering into the gloom in scary/excited anticipation, ramps up the suspense and the shark attacks are strikingly effective.
If you are not yet jaded by this formula, then this serves its purpose well, while if this is your first venture into such territory then the benefits are greater as a frightening scenario is intensely played out. But please, no more of these eh? There's only so much you can achieve with the premise... 6/10
'The Reef' is a shark flick I rented out recently having absolutely no prior knowledge of its existence, yet however the gamble pleasingly paid off.
A group of individuals find themselves in an awkward situation when their boat overturns (assumingly by a shark), and a dilemma is pondered. Do they stay above the overturned boat? Or swim hoping to find a nearby island? Well choices are made and this does involve crossing paths with sharks.
'The Reef' featuring primarily Aussie actors (no surprise being an Aussie film), does develop its characters, so we do care to an extent what happens to them.
This film is highly suspenseful; you never really know when a shark will attack. For a low budget Australian film this movie is fantastic in keeping you on your toes.
It's a shame that widely distributed films such as the terrible "Shark Night 3D" will reach a much wider audience than this little gem. If you get the chance to see this and you crave shark and/or thriller movies, don't miss out. "The Reef" wont disappoint.
