There's a shark in the Seine, a scientist being ignored, an ignorant major and some tiktok kids making things worse

Why so serious

The main problem is that it takes it's premise rather seriously, which makes all illogical, nonsensical and sometimes preposterous events stick out like a rusty nail. So now it's neither tense shark horror nor a fun spoof.

An even bigger dose of the same. I am slowly checking out.

With the familiar stylistics, even longer John Wick style fighting, and some memorable scenes, this should satisfy the fans. For me personally, I am not sure I was really excited by it because it is so excessive, and the way the bad guys wait with shooting, or miss, or both, is getting conspicuous.

Decent idea worthy of better execution.

After some snappy titles, a surprisingly strong backstory of the killer, the quality kind of plummets. The main character seems miscasted (I didn't buy her taking up this job), the tension is half baked and the slashing is all a bit so-so. Everything being broadcasted is a nice idea though.

Almost a gem showing budget is secundary. Almost.

While the movie clearly shows a limited budget, some cool space graphics, a well directed landing scene, the future retro space suits and the overall dreamy vibe all generate an interesting atmosphere indeed. A slightly more exciting and tight script could have made it a hidden gem indeed.

Great scifi puzzler

I quite liked these series, as they successfully mix time/dimensional trickery, science fiction, quantum oddities, a dash of horror and some interesting characters played by great actors. It's looking good and the weirdness is pleasing while never becoming convoluted.
