Deep Blue Sea (1999) Aquatica is a research lab located in the ocean. Doctor Susan McAlester and Doctor Jim Whitlock are currently doing research to help in the re-activation of dormant human brain cells like those found in Alzheimer's Disease patients. It seems that sharks do not lose any brain activity as they age, leading Susan and Jim to think that the proteins found in the sharks' brains may lead to a cure for Alzheimer's Disease, which is what killed Susan's father. The research is being funded by a group of investors headed by Russell Franklin, and the investors are getting impatient with the pace of the research. It doesn't help that a shark got loose from Aquatica, and attacked a few teenagers who were on a pleasure romp. In an effort to save her project, Susan gets a forty-eight-hour reprieve from Russell, who goes to the Aquatica to see how his money is being spent. Susan skips a few steps in the research project and genetically re-engineers the DNA of three mako sharks in order to create larger makos so the makos will have larger brains. With only her weekend skeleton crew on board -- that is, marine biologist Janice Higgins, engineer Tom Scoggins, shark expert Carter Blake, meteorologist Brenda Kerns, and Aquatica chef Sherman "Preacher" Dudley -- Susan prepares for her experiment. The test is successful, but then they all see what Susan's genetic re-engineering on the sharks has done -- one of the sharks wakes up from an anesthetic and kills Jim. Susan and her crew radio for help, and a rescue helicopter crashes into the station during a tropical storm, and then another shark attack leaves Aquatica sinking into the water. The surviving crew members do whatever they can think of to escape from Aquatica while they're trying to fight off the three sharks.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Russell Franklin: You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.
  • Carter Blake: No, what you've done is taken God's oldest killing machine and given it will and desire. What you've done is knocked us all the way to the bottom of the goddamn food chain. It's not a great leap forward in my book.
  • Tom Scoggins: Now you see how that works? She screwed with the sharks, and now the sharks, they're screwing with us.
  • Preacher: Einstein's theory of relativity. Grab hold of a hot pan, second can seem like an hour. Put your hands on a hot woman, an hour can seem like a second. It's all relative. Tom Scoggins: I spent four years at CalTech, and that's the best physics explanation I've ever heard.
  • Preacher: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil. For thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. Because I carry a big stick and I'm the meanest mother fucker in the valley! Two sharks down, Lord! One demon fish to go! Can I get an Amen?
Movie Trivia:
  • There are a number of in-jokes in the movie, including: - the license plate pulled from the shark's teeth is the same plate found in the tiger shark in Jaws (1975). - Director Renny Harlin has a cameo as one of the employees leaving the facility early in the movie (he's the one with long, blonde hair and sunglasses).
  • Director Trademark: [Renny Harlin] [Finland] There is a small Finnish flag in Janice's room. In the kitchen there is a dry erase board with a shopping list. The first item is "Finnish pancakes." Helsinki (Finland's capital city) is also mentioned. Finlandia vodka drunk in some shots also comes from Finland.
  • The seaplane used in this film is the same one used in Six Days Seven Nights (1998).
  • The orange colored mini-sub visible in the wet-entry area was the same mini-sub seen in the end of Sphere (1998), also starring Samuel L. Jackson.
  • The 11 February 1998 draft of the script credits the following writers: Duncan Kennedy and John Zinman, Simon Barry, Michael Frost Beckner, C.M. Talkington, Donna Powers and Wayne Powers. Duncan Kennedy, Donna Powers and Wayne Powers are the only writers credited in the final film.
